Bloody and disturbing glimpse into private hell.
26 February 2015 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Domestic rape/violence is a dark and socially relevant subject matter.That's why "Merry Little Christmas" is one of the gloomiest and most disturbing horror shorts I have ever seen.It explores savage brutality and mental and physical effects of horrible domestic abuse."Merry Little Christmas" reminded me of equally disturbing and powerful horror short "Cutting Moments" made by Douglas Buck.We see scenes of self-loathing/cutting and ultra-violence from child's perspective.There are some truly brutal scenes of rape and domestic abuse in "Merry Little Christmas" plus some hellish and disturbing imagery which reminded me Aphex Twin's infamous "Come to Daddy" video.8 vicious beatings out of 10.
