One Rotten Tomatoes reviewer wrote, ‘It asks so little and gives so much. Thanks, Santa Jaws.’ Another person said, ‘A fairly decent horror comedy with a hilarious sense of humor about itself [sic].’
An IMDd reviewer definitely wasn’t a fan, however. They wrote, ‘This ridiculous action horror/comedy for the tween set makes the “Sharknado” movies look like Oscar winners. Why are there so many positive reviews for this Jingle Bells trash?’
