Plot – Spoilers:
Family driving through snowy peak country on a visit to Grandpa. Smarmy smiles from Dad and Mum and happy-family conversations with kid in the back. And then Evil Santa arrives, bringing lifelong trauma rather than yuletide cheer. The kid survives and grows up in an orphanage where Mother Superior supplements Evil Santa’s earlier presents by infusing guilt and a twisted version of right and wrong, particularly in sexual matters.

The version here is from a release where the censored scenes were edited into the theatrical cut, leading to fairly obvious changes in quality and colour during the scenes.

Just your “run-of-the-mill” Christmas movie. Great title, an okay movie – to say the least.

I saw this in the theater before they pulled the film. Parents picketed this because of Santa being cast as a murderer. How times have changed. Pure American Kraft Cheese.

Why must be the protagonist be a hot psycho guy? Not fair. Imagine if this character was used in today’s movies, it would not be surprising if the death rate from hookups gets higher.

Indeed, this is a great watch for Christmas eve. Hehee
