The Killing Tree (2022)

Once known as Demonic Christmas Tree, get ready for the story of serial killer Clayton Slayter,  who even after execution comes back when his wife Magna figures out the kind of body transference voodoo that turns a man into a holiday tree.

Yes, a killer — killing — tree.

Somehow, I got two movies by director Rhys Frake-Waterfield this week. I enjoyed this one much more,  as it tries to take the whole concept seriously. Clayton wants revenge on Faith, who put him in jail after he killed her parents, but right now she’s so busy playing marriage counselor to her friends Tina and Louisa that she might not even notice the garland and bulbs inching their way menacingly toward her.

I mean, a tree hunts down a woman while holding a knife. That’s the kind of quality this movie is delivering. Frake-Waterfield also has a slasher Winnie the PoohWinnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey. He might be inventing a whole new genre of child book slashers, as he is also involved with the making of Peter Pan’s Neverland NightmareMary Had a Little Lamb and Three Blind Mice.

There will come a time very soon that you will need a holiday movie. If you want to make your family think you’ve finally lost your milk and cookies, choose this one to show them all.
