Critic Reviews of "Holidays"
Entertainment WeeklyApril 22, 2016
Some of the films are haunting, some of them more macabre, but all of them play with holiday symbolism in way that will make viewers rethink a lot of their favorite celebrations.
RogerEbert.comApril 22, 2016
"Holidays" is frustrating because its creators all have something good going for them, but almost consistently have no ideas of what to do.
Los Angeles TimesApril 22, 2016
The film mostly feels perfunctory and awkward - like calling home at Christmas.
AV ClubApril 21, 2016
Like a family dinner with an eccentric uncle, Holidays' quirkiness is fitfully entertaining, but ultimately exhausting.
indieWireApril 15, 2016
Seeing how visionaries new and old foster an idea of things that go bump in the night is what keeps viewers coming back for more, and when anthologies add as many twists as Holidays, aficionados are always ready for the next installment.

A series of stupid, baffling, and pointless horror segments that go nowhere...

Murder, paranormal pregnancies, and damn creepy kids dominate the octaptych, the parts of which waver between clever -- if not straight up unnerving -- and banal.
ColliderApril 28, 2016
Every single segment in Holidays is of a certain quality and every single one holds your attention. Some are just more refined and impactful than others.
NerdistApril 28, 2016
As is (almost) always the case with anthology films, Holidays is best described as a "mixed bag." And yet it's the wildly different collection of tones, attitudes, and storytelling styles that makes the collection so interesting.
About.comApril 27, 2016
It's a middle-of-the-road anthology but boasts great energy and a sense of humor that runs throughout, helping make even the mediocre entries watchable.
