The whole film is an exercise in nightmare fuel given its concept, but a few moments really stand out:
- When Will is sharply telling Salem to stay in the house because he and Violet have "angel's measles" and are very contagious. His tone, his stance, everything about it would be right at home in a horror flick if you added the appropriate soundtrack.
- Will telling these very young children that they just died. The fact that they don't even seem all that fazed by it makes it worse.
- Violet's jealousy meltdowns over Will and Carrie cross this with Narm.
- The fact that as horrifying as the premise is, it could have been so much worse. Salem and Princess believe everything Will tells them, even though Salem has his suspicions. This is how pedophiles groom children in real life! Will may be a creep, but at least his intentions are G-Rated: playmates for his sister and a little help with the chores. If this wasn't a family Christmas movie, there's no telling what he could have done to those kids once he had them completely under his sway. He's already exploiting a black kid to do chores, but what if his intentions towards Princess were less than pure? Or worse...what if Violet turned out to be the dangerous kind of mentally ill instead of just developmentally disabled?
