Critic Reviews:

I was hoping Hanukkah would use Jewish traditions and scripture the way many horror films have used the bible. It would have made a nice change of pace and helped set the film apart. Instead, it’s all pretty much ignored and we get a generic story about obnoxious assholes dying.

Expanding representation in horror will not only bring more fans to the genre but will still satisfy existing fans with a great film. Gore, cinematography, nods to 80s films, and some of the great names of horror movies, all combine to make this film a delightful slasher.

The tropes of the sub-genre are knowingly replicated – subjective camerawork, Peeping Toms, lots of unerotic nudity – but there’s a mean-spiritedness behind the multiple scenes of naked, bloodied, mortally wounded women that keeps any of it from being any fun whatsoever.
