      Ein gemütliches Häuschen auf dem englischen Lande: Der Weihnachtsbaum ist liebevoll geschmückt, das Feiertagsfestmahl opulent vorbereitet und nostalgische Evergreens klingen durch die Räumlichkeit. Als Nell (Keira Knightley), Simon (Matthew Goode) und ihr Sohn Art (Roman Griffin Davis) Verwandtschaft und Freunde in dem kleinen Cottage willkommen heißen, scheint dem perfekten Weihnachtsfest im Kreis der Liebsten rein gar nichts mehr im Wege zu stehen. An der Geschichte gibt es jedoch einen Haken, denn überleben wird niemand die Weihnachtsfeiertage...


      Jüngstes Gericht am Heiligen Abend: Das bitterböse „Was-wäre-wenn“-Kammerspiel von Camille Griffin lässt die Generation „Fridays For Future“ unterm Tannenbaum mit der Dekadenz ihrer Eltern kollidieren – und das ist tatsächlich ein (dunkelschwarzhumoriges) Fest! (filmstarts 4/5)

      „Silent Night“ beginnt wie eine typische Weihnachtskomödie rund um eine dysfunktionale Gruppe, bevor es sich nach und nach in ein Endzeitdrama verwandelt. Die Mischung der einzelnen Bestandteile geht nicht ganz auf, da fehlte dann doch ein schlüssiges Konzept. Sehenswert ist der ungewöhnliche Mix aber, zudem mitreißend gespielt. armknoli

    1. RING SHOUT, by P. Djèlí Clark. (Tordotcom, $19.99.) Clark’s novella about dark forces unleashed by the early-20th-century release of D. W. Griffith’s “The Birth of a Nation” is the kind of reimagining of history that puts the act of storytelling, and the art of the horror genre, at the forefront of literary and political life. “The book’s cover art says it all,” Danielle Trussoni writes in her latest horror column: “A white hood, its eyeholes ringed with teeth, stands blood-spattered as two Black hands rise in a movement that frames and threatens to unmask what is lurking beneath. … Clark’s combination of historical and political reimagining is cathartic, exhilarating and fresh.”

    1. Plainpalais

      In July 1794, Plainpalais, a neighborhood in Geneva, was the site where a group of Swiss revolted against the Genovese government with the help of the French revolutionary Robespierre, establishing a tribunal and putting on trial several high-ranking Genovese officials. Critics suggest Shelley's use of Plainpalais is an attempt to explicitly link the revolutionary events of Plainpalais with the Creature's monstrosity. See Fred V. Randel, "The Political Geography of Horror in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein," ELH Vol. 70, No. 2 (Summer, 2003): 465-491.

    1. “Some of us just like that stuff,” she said. “We like suspense, we like to be scared, we like to have visceral reaction in the theater. Maybe I’m starved for adrenaline, but for me watching a horror movie is very pleasurable. So making one was kind of a dream.”
