They *must* have been drunk during this one
11 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A serial killer dressed as St. Nick chops people up with an ax on Christmas Eve. Wait, didn't Silent Night, Deadly Night do that about a dozen years earlier? and didn't Tales From The Crypt do it about a dozen years even before that?

"Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh what fun it is to slay a slaying song tonight" sings the slash-happy Santa in the barely lit opening sequence, as he endlessly drives to, ... somewhere. Apparently the producers found this scene to be so well done that they even reused it several times throughout the course of this film.

Originality certainly isn't this film's strong point, (nor is lighting, as the majority of this 67-minutes long movie looks as though it was filmed at nighttime, using only ambient lighting and Christmas tree lights; perhaps the crew broke into buildings to film it and didn't want to switch a light on to alert anyone of their presence, choosing instead to work under the cover of darkness?) Scenes held for too long are this film's specialty, as the filmmakers padded out the brief run-time with lengthy scenes of people walking down darkly lit streets, and mumbling inaudible dialogue.

Barely lit, barely audible holiday hackfest, kind of funny just because it is so inept; were it not for the photograph on the wall of Bill Clinton, one could say it looks as though this was actually filmed several years earlier, and then sat unreleased until 1996. At one point in time we can actually hear the camera's own zooming function, before the film's supremely confusing ending.
