“With more lumps of coal than appetizing treats, Deathcember doesn’t stuff a consistently thrilling stocking […] I won’t say I don’t recommend Deathcember. But considering the draining effect of its dragging length, I don’t recommend watching it all in one sitting, no matter how much mulled wine you have at the ready.” Culture Crypt

“Of course, because there were so many different stories, there were also some mixed feelings, although there were only a few times that it didn’t necessarily work for me. These misses were easier to overlook because each one lasted a matter of minutes […] Deathcember is a fun holiday anthology, full of diverse voices from all around the world that has something for everyone.” Killer Horror Critic

“There is plenty to enjoy here, ranging from supernatural creatures like vampires to more gritty, realistic horror. Some dour, rather depressing segments are balanced with other installments that boast dark humor and clever twists. Deathcember truly offers something for every flavor of fright-fare fan.” The Scariest Things
