Scary Christmas: A Christmas Requiem

For some, Christmas is just another work day. Even so, once in a while, they can stop and bring a just a small amount of Christmas cheer to an otherwise miserable existence...

A Christmas Requiem (2013)
Starring: Trisha Hershberger, DJ Wooldridge, Josh Calvin, Sam Bashor, and Lexi Burrows
Director: DJ Woolridge
Rating: Eight of Ten Stars


This is a well-made, depressing little film that suffers from a bad casting choice in the sense that the two male leads are too similar in appearance. They're both good in their parts, with Woolridge in particular showing a nice range of emotions in his performance, but when the scene changes, viewers will momentarily think we may be in a flashback.


Scary Crhistmas: A Gift for the One Who Has Everything

This is the story of a woman who doesn't understand the meaning of the words "Christmas Spirit."

The Gift for the One Who Has Everything (2014)
Starring: Zoe Wilson and Martin Yates
Director: Martin Yates and Calum McPhaill
Rating: Seven of Ten Stars
