I would like to know who the frack came up with the unwritten rule of reflections on a knife blade. This concept has worked ONCE and it was with American Psycho. Seriously, this looks ridiculous. Are you really going to tell me that these six people stood in a totem pole and put on their best pouty model faces while awaiting their doom from a Bollywood Santa? Yeah, and monkeys might fly out of my butt.
Can we also discuss the fact the blade doesn't look like it has a handle? The photoshopping is so terrible, it looks like a rounded rectangle was just superimposed into his hand and given a "shiny" effect. I don't know about you, but I don't know of a single blade that looks like it glows in the dark and doesn't require a handle.
We all know how much I love to rip on taglines, and luckily, this one doesn't disappoint. "Christmas will never be the same again". Alright, not that bad. Yet, they didn't space it properly. When taglines are put line after line, they are read, line after line. Technically speaking, this tagline is "Christmas. Will Never. Be The Same Again." Why? Are you going to get your Red Ryder BB Gun? Give me a break, the one time you're allowed to have a cheesy pun, you don't even go for it. I'm disappointed in you Bollywood Christmas Thriller.
Surprisingly, I like the background. Silent Hill-esque shopping malls tend to go over well in my book, but it could use a little less period blood, rust water, orange tint and a little more holiday fear. ZING!
