Reviews:

Killer Christmas is not a well-lit film leaving you feeling like you’re watching a found-footage horror. Ultimately, Killer Christmas doesn’t have an original bone in its body & the Christmas theme is stretched out. Decent acting can’t make up for a bland plot, poor pacing & a disappointing killer reveal.” Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life

“Despite some positives aspects, the scary Santa mask doesn’t quite help elevate the freshman effort from co-writing and co-directing team PeterPaul and Tony Shaker. Ultimately, it suffers from slow pacing and minimal bloodshed.” The Movie Sleuth

” …another seasonal cash-in wherein a bunch of yoots get terrorised by some dick head in a Santa outfit as they mope about an abandoned hotel  […] there is a twist that is as mad as a bunch of elves, and which either explains the set up or confuses it further; I’m not completely sure, and I’m not convinced the filmmakers were either. Ho ho ho? No no no.” The Movie Waffler

“I’m usually OK when a film has a slow build-up (Hereditary is a good example), but ultimately something has to happen to make the trek worthwhile. Unfortunately, with this film, it’s an uneventful slow road to nowhere.” The Other View

“The girls were constantly complaining and complaining again…about everything. It was dark and after what seemed like an eternity, I was praying for someone to die.” Ruthless Reviews
