I would have posted about this last Friday, but my country imploded, so anyway.

Holidays, showing at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, is a portmanteau of (mostly comedy) horror stories about specific holidays. Some like Valentine’s Day relate pretty heavily, others like Halloween (by Kevin Smith, who also introduced the film) are tangential.

Could have probably done with only having one monster pregnancy story.

The really-not-comedy one of the group is Father’s Day, a creepy premise followed by a super-creepy journey through an abandoned town.

Are any of them particularly gameable? Hmm, not really. Father’s Day opens with a very personal mystery that could have been sustained further. The Christmas story with the year’s must-have toy being a VR device that can show you memories - and show them to other people as well - could be too.
