Storyline

It's Christmas in Australia as Diane, played by the Dee Wallace, brings together her estranged family for a chaotic holiday gathering. A 20 year old decision literally comes back to haunt her when the ghost of Christmas past comes knocking at her door and is invited inside the family estate. Festivities quickly turn blood red, when the stranger is revealed to be Cletus, Diane's aborted fetus, all grown up, very much alive and ready to terrorize his long lost mother. Diane must face her past and explain the hideous truth that is trying to kill them all, especially to Jerry, her Down Syndrome son, before it's too late. Written by Michael Joy

Christmas past ...
16 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Or something different for that matter. To be honest it won't be too hard to figure out, who our mystery character is, who just wants one thing. Or does he really? Whatever the case, the mystery is not a big one and that's not the selling point of the movie either. It actually is the gore that follows and the tension that it builds that will either leave you in awe or in disarray.

You have to decide if you're up for horror and a lot of violence with this one. If you are, you are in for a treat. If not just leave this alone and watch something else. You have Dee Wallace as mother figure, which is fitting and the rest of the cast has their own kind of fun.
