The holiday horror continues with Dismembering Christmas.
|"I don't know where this hand has been!"|
Like most low budget horror films, Dismembering Christmas is full of plot holes. It suffers from an underdeveloped script, and some performances leave plenty of room for improvement. It’s important to remember though that this film is a Kickstarter project, made on a budget of $11,367. In many ways it’s like that weird shredded carrot and walnut jell-o dessert your Uncle’s 2nd wife brings to the family holiday get-together. It may look unappetizing, but if you give it a chance, you may discover you like it. Dismembering Christmas is a passion project, and the horror is a throwback to the slasher films of the ‘80s.

Overall, given the limited budget, and the fact this film was made by a small team of dedicated individuals, it’s hard to be too critical. It’s like getting a strange random Christmas gift from your grandmother as an adult. It really doesn’t matter what it is, it’s the thought and effort that counts. Dismembering Christmas may be full of loopholes, but there is still plenty to enjoy. There is a great holiday balance to the film. It does so by using the Christmas decoration from the set to carry out the gruesome acts of horror. The last scene is especially wicked and the ending surprisingly pulls everything together nicely like a bloody red ribbon around a head sized present.
