So the first movie was awesome, the second one was pretty darned lazy and pathetic but fortunately they stepped it up a bit for this third sequel. This time angry brother Ricky wakes up from a 6 year coma and now has some sort of fishbowl covering his brain...yeah he looks really sane! Of course he hasn't gotten over his hatrid of Christmas and his need to PUNISH! This time around he bothers a blind woman (who is somewhat mentally linked to Ricky through psychic ability I think) and her brother and his girlfriend who are on their way to Grandma's for Christmas Eve. When they arrive of course Grandma is nowhere to be found (because Ricky found her first) and the slashing begins. It's not really all that exciting although there are some fun slashery deaths and of course the bubble brain thing is definitely memorable. Not a bad little Christmas sequel, the biggest unfortunate thing is that you have to sit through the second film to get to this one....sigh!
