Trivia

The segment, "St. Patrick's Day", references the Norwegian folktale "The Lindworm Prince", also known as simply "The Lindworm". While there are several versions of the folktale, the version anthologized in the seminal Asbjornsen and Moe Collection is the most popular one. The folktale tells of a queen giving birth to a snake creature and when the creature is born, it flees into the land. When the creature grows up, it becomes a prince. See more »

Holidays
18 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Holidays offers us eight tales of a very variable quality, without a common theme or an "involving story" to unify the experience. The tales are (in order of appearance): Valentine's Day, which I found reasonably satisfactory, establishing the tone of the film with equal portions of drama, madness and subtle but efficient gore; St. Patrick's Day, my favorite tale of the movie, due to its big doses of style, excellent performances and an atmosphere which reminded me of The Wicker Man (1973) and The Lair of the White Worm; Easter, whose solid development is ruined by an abrupt and unsatisfactory ending; Mother's Day, which unfortunately ends when it was starting to get interesting; Father's Day, whose tension and mystery are elevated with a good rhythm, until... What the hell was that? Is that really the ending?; Halloween, which is the worst tale despite having been made by the most famous director of this anthology (Kevin Smith), because I found it predictable, overacted and vulgar, and not vulgar in the likable style of Clerks, but in a genuinely disgusting way; Christmas, which I found ridiculous and illogical; and New Year's Eve, offering a poor visual style and a weak screenplay. Nevertheless, the whole experience of Holidays offers enough pros to earn a slight recommendation. And besides, I was left with wishes of watching a full-length film of St. Patrick's Day... what is more, it made me have a better understanding of "Whacking Day", the parody of that celebration made in The Simpsons.
