The Nutcracker from Hell: Hollywood turns Christmas classic into horror movie


It may be the time of year for sugar plum fairies, but the reviews for “The Nutcracker in 3D” haven’t been so sweet.

“From what dark night of the soul emerged the wretched idea for The Nutcracker in 3D?” –Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times,

“Spectacularly misconceived, bloated and incredibly ugly.” – Lou Lumenick, New York Post

“So many terrible ideas that the terrible execution is almost irrelevant: Even if the film were well done, it would still be a travesty.” – David Edelstein, New York Magazine

Yikes. (
