On the darker scale of Christmas horror, Christmas Cookies is a disturbing short that opens with a pretty visual of the Yuletide before we see a woman chopping up a body in her kitchen. She then makes star cookies out of the meat and bakes them in the oven. Disturbed yet? Well she puts them out with a glass of milk and heads off to bed.
It’s not Santa she is expecting though, no. These cookies are for Krampus and old Saint Nick is in for a surprise when he stops by too!
Nailing the feel of Christmas thanks to the smart use of Carol of the Bells, Christmas Cookies is a sharply shot short that has all the feel of a big budget studio. It’s a lot more graphic then many may be used too when it comes to Christmas horror shorts but that just means it stands out a little more. It needs that too as the payoff isn’t that great if we’re honest.
