Storyline

On Christmas Eve, a mother controls the anxiety of her little daughter Carrie Ann for Santa Claus and puts her to bed. Then she comes to the living room and kills her husband, hitting his head with a fireplace poker, expecting to receive his life insurance and stay with her lover. While she is dumping his body on the yard, the dangerous patient of a mental institution dressed like Santa Claus attacks her but she succeeds to escape and lock the door. However, she is unable to call the police since the body of her husband is in the front yard. Out of the blue, Carrie calls her mother with an unexpected guest. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When the wife takes the keys from her dead husband and makes her way back into the house, there's no snow on the hood of her coat, nor on her shoulders, yet when you see her entering filmed from inside the house, there is quite a lot of snow on the top of her hood and shoulders. See more »

Quotes

Crypt Keeper: [In the closing narration, after Carrie screamed at the evil Santa Claus who was holding an axe] Well, how was that for a scream boys and ghouls? Oh, don't worry about little Carrie. This particular Santa preferred older women... in pieces, that is.

Best Christmas Horror You'll Ever Find
27 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

9/10- 30 minutes of pure holiday terror. Okay, so it's not that scary. But it sure is fun.

The Crypt Keeper (John Kassir) tales a tale of holiday FEAR, giving us all Christmas Goose... GosseBUMPS That is. Bwahahahahha. You should really be careful what you AXE Santa for. Have a Scary Christmas and a Happy New Fear. Okay I'll stop.

Okay, so in the story, a greedy wife (Best screamer in the world, Mary Ellen Trainor) kills her husband (Marshall Bell, the coach who gets towel whipped to death in ANOES 2) for the money. BUT, her plan is ruined when a crazy killer dressed in a Santa suit (Larry "Dr. Giggles" Drake) comes her way.

If you look it up on YouTube, you can watch it for free, but most of you have already seen this (my third viewing). But if you haven't seen it, I suggest you do.
