Why, why, why do I do this? You know, I used to really like my job. I review Christmas Movies, so what could possibly go wrong? I know and expect to get my share of the stinkers, but this year has been unusually hard. This movie gets an immediate and uncontested 10.0/10.0 for sheer annoyance […]

Last year a friend sent me a copy of White Christmas as a joke Christmas present. I realized that I had never really watched this Christmas classic, or remember watching it, so I popped it in the ole DVD player last night. After the viewing, I had the feeling that not only was the movie […]

A Merry Little Christmas (2006), a.k.a The Town That Banned Christmas is without a doubt one of the dumbest, most unnecessary and incompetently made Christmas Movies I have ever watched. Don’t worry, A Meowy Christmas will always take its place as the worst Christmas Movie ever made, but this one is certainly in the top […]

Once Upon A Time At Christmas (2017) was a Christmas horror/slasher movie that featured a psycho and deranged Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. They found much joy in clocking people with axes and crossbows. It was quickly obvious that the murders were themed on the Christmas song, The 12 Days of Christmas. The victims had […]

I wasn’t expecting much when I fired up this Christmas Slasher cheese-fest. I had recently watched Scrooge In The Hood, and Mercy Christmas has an even lower User Rating from IMDB. Yes, the bar is low for Christmas horror movies. What I actually saw was a well-acted, hilarious, but bloody camp masterpiece. This Christmas film […]

Christmas Must Be Saved! This is the timeless and hackneyed theme of most Christmas Movies, good and bad.

Todd Therrien
Richard Chandler

The only thing wrong with this Christmas film, other than the acting, production, direction, sets, editing, cinematography and writing, was that it was an incredible 1hr. 23 minutes long. Scrooge In The Hood, a.k.a Silent Night, Dead Night is yet another obscure rendition of the Dickens classic Tagline: We Put The Dick In Charles Dickens […]

A Christmas Carol-The Musical (2004) Here we have yet another addition to the versions of the Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. This movie was a full length, made for TV musical, starring Kelsey Grammer as Scrooge. I generally don’t care much for Musicals, except for the excellent Broadways like The Phantom and Les Miserables. Watching […]

I wrote my first Christmas review in 2006 or so, before Christmas Movie Reviews were a big Ruthless franchise. Now, if you Google Christmas Movie Reviews , Ruthless Reviews comes up #1. In 2013, I started churning out reviews in earnest, and now Ruthless has a stable of over 65 Christmas Movie Reviews and rants. […]
