      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Violent Night isn't as wildly entertaining as its concept might suggest, but for those seeking harder-edged holiday fare, it may be a ho-ho-whole lot of fun.

      Audience Says

      It could have taken its cool concept even further, but Violent Night is still a funny, gory good time -- and David Harbour is terrific as a Santa you won't want to mess with.

      Donald Clarke Irish Times It’s like attending a party where no two guests are on sufficiently good terms to manage even 20 minutes of civilised conversation. “Perfect for Christmas Day then,” I hear you say. Too cynical. Rated: 2/5 Dec 10, 2022 Full Review Stephen Romei The Australian 112 minutes of your life rather than a day, which is a small gift... Rated: 2/5 Dec 9, 2022 Full Review Megan Garber The Atlantic Violent Night offers up a timely amalgam: It is torture porn that is also a morality play. Dec 7, 2022 Full Review Sarah Vincent Sarah G Vincent Views What elevates “Violent Night” from a mindless, holiday-themed action film was its ability to balance the violence and the heartwarming emotions. Jun 8, 2024 Full Review Mini Anthikad-Chhibber The Hindu A mean-spirited film with nothing to redeem. Oct 4, 2023 Full Review Prabhjot Bains Tilt Magazine It’s brimming with both warmth and cynicism, cementing a Santa perfectly attuned to the times and emblematic of the joy and anguish that pervades this time of year... a new Christmas classic.

      James R St Nicholas at a different level!! fun movie!! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/31/23 Full Review The Ron This is funny and violent take on a Christmas movie. I loved it, and it's homage to Home Alone was awesome! Not a kids movie for sure. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/28/23 Full Review KJC Love it! Love it! Love it! And will own it too to watch over & over again every holiday season. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/27/23 Full Review Robert Santa Clause kicking butt in the most gruesome and graphic of ways possible. The entire movie is silly but on purpose for it's comedic effect. Watch this if you love dumb, stupid, and fun violence. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/28/23 Full Review Gigi Absolutely fantastic film! My new favorite Christmas movie in a while! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/11/23 Full Review Ruby B It was meh - Christmas meets cheesy action movie. Overall, there was a heartfelt message at the end, in true Christmas fashion. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
