Beverley Hills Christmas 2 (2018, dir. Christian Filippella)

High-school acting skills accompany a plot that throws everything at the wall to see what sticks: it’s like the hundred monkeys taking a toilet break from their hundred typewriters. I had a wonderful time.

A Wish for Christmas (2016, dir. Christie Will Wolf)

It’s that time of the year again: 31 films from the best to the worst of bad Christmas movies on offer, and 24 sleeps until Christmas! Except I wrote this post with 49 sleeps til Christmas because this is my fourth year of lovingly reviewing crap and I don’t fuck around.

A Boyfriend for Christmas (2004, dir. Kevin Connor)

This has to be one of my all-time favourite bad films, a total pick me up for if you’re feeling bad-crappy and need something good-crappy. How do you know a film is the one?

Like the film description: “a stranger makes a teacher question her future”. I’m sure I had loads of strangers in mind who might be making many people question their future. Their terrifying future… anyway!

Mega Piranha (2010, dir. Eric Forsberg)

Here we are, Day 13 of Spoopfest. For the final Halloween review this year I’m throwing it back to a film which holds fond memories for me. It was the end of winter term in my second year at university, I was hanging out with friends before we all went our separate ways for Christmas. We bought Christmas pudding from the reduced section of the local Co-op, accidentally spilled rum sauce all over my boyfriend’s kitchen, and watched Mega Piranha. It was one of those films where you laugh until you cry.
