I probably would not have watched / known about this movie if I had not seen the YouTube video DISTURBING CHRISTMAS HORROR MOVIES | New Hidden Gems! | Spookyastronauts by the YouTube channel Spookyastronauts shortly before this movie aired on TV on Adult Swim during or after Toonami:
Otherwise, I probably would have thought that it was going to be 2 hours of just fireplace footage, and my brother GC & I would not have watched it.
We both did not expect to watch all of it, we decided to give it about 30 minutes to prove whether it was worth continuing to watch or not.
We watched this movie when it aired on TV on Cartoon Network on Adult Swim during or after Toonami.
To our surprise, it kept our attention, we watched the entire movie, and it was better than we had expected.
My favorite thing about this movie, which is also the creepiest part of it, is the parts of the movie involving an unknown male entity.
That entity and his parts of the movie were the most interesting, creepy, mysterious, scary, and I wanted to learn more about who(m) this entity was & his lore.
You will know which entity I am talking about when you see this movie.
To our surprise, this low-budget movie was worth watching, even if only for the unique concepts involving that male entity.
