On the other hand, I am very troubled by dystopian future-tech. Over the last year I’d spent a lot of time reading about Ring — dozens of articles published in the Intercept, Recode, Vice, and Cnet — detailing the company’s sloppy security practices, secretive police partnerships, and many potential privacy violations.

The film looks like some Hallmark card-esque nightmare, and that impression is enhanced by its story’s surreal logic. Stashing his grandpa first in a hidden-toy-wonderland chamber boasting a rope bridge and a totem pole, and later in a suit of armor, Thomas gets to deal with Psycho Santa on his own.
