The premise: While celebrating Christmas at a cabin in the woods, a group of high school students are stalked by a psychotic killer obsessed with horror movie icons. There might be serious continuity problems with this film that surprisingly have won quite the few award at various horror festivals around the world.  

For one, the titles go ’10 years later’  which shows Jamie clearly in his late forties while 10 years back was a mere kid with a puppet.  (But this could be deliberately done, as all the actors playing the high school students are in their forties or thirties!)  

But for sheer cheesiness and violent gore and bloodletting, director Ovies knows how to dish out the goods.  As a child, Jamie is given a puppet by his mother that he adores.  When mother dies of cancer, the evil new father’s girlfriend (termed stepmother again, continuity problems) tears down all the posters and things Jamie loves.  

She is mysteriously bludgeoned tp death, horror-movie style which means it is likely a PUPPET KILLER is on the loose.  The best way to enjoy this horror flick is to ignore all logic and enjoy the cheesiness – which there is plenty of.  Director Ovies shows promise but her film is all over the place.
