It's Christmas, and Diane (Dee Wallace) and her partner Joe (Geoff Morrell) have invited all her family for the festivities - there's pregnant daugher Ginny (Janis McGavin) and her husband Scott (Bjorn Stewart), Ginny's pious sister Suzy (Sarah Bishop) and her pastor husband Peter (David Collins), rebellious young Hope (Deelia Meriel), and Diane's only son Jerry (Gerard Odwyer), who suffers from Down Syndrome. It's pretty much a powder keg as it is, but then a hooded and bandaged up stranger Cletus (Sam Campbell) shows up, and at first, Diane's happy to invite him in, but when he starts to make some quite personal remarks about an abortion she has had, she throws him out again ... and then, Diane's loved ones start to die like flies - well, they are killed by Cletus. And only eventually it comes out why, and it has to do with Diane's abortion and the fact that that abortion clinic was blown up by religious nutters then and there. And it seems now Diane's past has come back to haunt her ...


Of course, simmered down to its core, the story of Red Christmas is pretty much a classic slasher, with all the mechanisms of the genre firmly in place. But it's also more than that, it doesn't only give its killer a very spooky appearance that's directly related to his origin, it also features a well fleshed out cast that one's able to care about, even if one might not necessarily "like" all characters or agree with them - but they are wonderfully relatable for their shortcomings all the same, also thanks to a solid cast. Now add to that a direction more than capeable of creating both atmosphere and suspense, and that uses the characters to their full advantage, coupled with some of the most "creative" murders in quite some time, and you've got yourself pretty cool genre entertainment.
