It's just fun. If you like fun, go. Enjoy. If you don't, you suck. Stay home.

Exactly what I expected and more. David Harbour was excellent as Santa.

This is a Santa movie I never knew I wanted! I loved the heck out of this movie! It’s a mix of Home Alone and Nobody and it’s perfect! I do recommend leaving the kids home unless they can handle it

It’s like if the kid in home alone was John Wick and Santa combined. Not a thinking person’s movie, come for the dumb humor and violence. Entertaining watch overall.

I loved this movie. It was funny, action packed and a fun twist on the subject of Santa Claus. David Harbour was cast perfectly for this role. This will be a Christmas movie for all time to me at least. Loved it!!

Great movie. Great cast. Leguizamo put off Montague vs Capulet angst. Sooo good. And who doesn't love Hopper?!? This is now my favorite Christmas movie. Soooo much fun.

What an awesomely FESTIVE action packed ride! Was so surprised by how much actual Christmas heart and soul was put into this! it sounds weird to describe this movie as wholesome, but at it's core, it truly is! Me and my 11 year old were in tears! So much fun! Needless to say, the action was amazing, visuals are all stellar top notch, the cast is perfect, super entertaining, very funny. The COOLEST part is Santa's backstory !!! OMG, EPIC! I won't give anything away. GO. SEE. THIS. MOVIE!

It was very funny. Very action packed. A little bit too much borrowing from “Die Hard” ripoff to earn 5 stars, but still very good.

I was hoping for something original, and I wasn't disappointed this is the Santa story from an action point of view. I laughed, was surprised, and even cried a little. it has a story to tell from an honest point of view as long as you open your eyes. I will see it again.

I sort of knew what to expect from the trailers I'd seen online, however, the movie was better than I expected. David Harbour was quite funny and I enjoyed his performance as Santa. First flick that had me laughing out loud multiple times! Definitely some holiday gore, but it can't all be tinsel and snowflakes, right?

This “frightening” fantastic film of a violent Santa clause was nice to see and not your typical Christmas movie. It was action packed from the start, lots of laughs, and even a few heart warming moments. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was.

very funny Christmas movie, cheesy action but, it works with the whole movie being a parody of cheesy Christmas movies like home alone, and oddly die hard.

Metacritic

Dec 5, 2022

Violent Night isn’t going to go down as a classic (although it may have cult classic potential) but, despite all the gore and violence and other R-rated material, it’s arguably less offensive than the kind of bilge proliferated by Netflix and Lifetime/Hallmark/etc. in the name of Holiday Cheer. There are certainly worse ways to spend a chilly December evening.

Now comes the gruesomely bloody, cheerfully tasteless, fantastically naughty and entertaining Christmas thriller Violent Night, which is basically “Die Hard” with candy canes in a mansion.
