Don’t Open Till Christmas is an abysmal but mercifully short festive, British horror film from 1984. A masked man stalks the streets, to a bonkers (and bad) synth soundtrack, bumping off men in Santa costumes for no apparent reason. That’s basically it.
It has dated terribly but I can’t imagine it seemed much better in 1984 than it does now. I mean, I was only wee back then but I’m sure people must’ve had better taste than this (leg warmers and Police Academy not withstanding).
Anyway, even if I try my hardest to find something positive to say about Don’t Open, I just can’t.
This isn’t just bad horror, this is sinfully bad horror.
