Usually, with anthology films, there are some storyines that work and some that don't. That is definitely the case in this film. I liked the D.J. storyline and the high school students' storyline, but I didn't care for the Krampus, zombie elves, or changeling storlines. I will say, however, that the film is very effective in tying the stories into a cohesive unit with its use of transitions, more so than other films of the genre. I also liked the twist ending, which I really didn't expect to happen.
There are also some issues with the technical side of the film. The CGI effects have a few good moments, but for the most part, they are like those of a low-budget SyFy movie. I also thought that the acting of some of the acting could be a bit cheesy and overdone, with the notable exceptions of William Shatner and George Buza.
Overall, "A Christmas Horror Story" is a relatively fun, but fundamentally flawed horror anthology. I would reccomend the far better "Krampus" instead.
