Christmas Season Massacre (2001)

How bad is it? It's not even a Christmas movie.
Should you see it? No.

Twenty years after the rash of holiday slasher films I endured in college, someone decided to try it again, with extremely poor results. It's about a kid who gets bullied and ends up with one shoe (can't afford o replace the stolen one) and an eye patch (not needed; it was a gift). He kills off his tormentors and the last six just happen to get together in Christmastown, CA. In summer. The slice-and-dice action is nothing remarkable. The ending, if you make it that far, has a minor surprise, but not enough to make up for the rest.
