Poor Sid Haig and Dick Miller. Both going out with this travesty as their last film. The premise seemed like it would be full of blasphemous satire in the vein of such schlocky classics as Silent Night Deadly Night and Black Christmas. But this monstrosity is just dire and unpleasant. The plot is razor thin. The "villain" is lame with a tired motivation. Every character is unsympathetic with cringe-worthy dialogue that ranges from absurd to proselytic. It is either trying too hard to be outrageous or taking itself way too seriously. But it never manages to be fun or even ironic. I was hoping for so much better.
A group of Jewish young adults are in for a Festival of Frights. With the help of a Rabbi, they deduce that they are being targeted because they have violated Judaic law and that their only chance of survival is to embrace their faith.
