The 12 fun installments of this dark comedy series offer lots of terrifying, unexpected twists and turns. Each episode offers its own unique narrative, but they all interconnect in some way. Adding to the fun is the diverse cast, which consists of film and TV actors like The Purge: Election Year's Betty Gabriel and Big Love's Douglas Smith, as well as popular YouTube stars like Meghan Rienks and Anna Akana.

Watching 12 Deadly Days isn't the most conventional way to get into the Christmas spirit. Nonetheless, it's well-written, well-produced, and extremely entertaining. You don't have to wait until the holidays to enjoy it, either. If you're in the mood for some good stories that mix merrymaking with humor and horror, you won't be disappointed.
