Dick, a disgruntled Christmas elf who's just been arrested for the murder of Santa Claus, rants about the unimaginable secrets going on at the North Pole. As this seriously dark humored holiday tale unfolds, unknown to the elf or the authorities, the real problem is awakening at the morgue. Zombie Santa wants brains and is thirsty for elf blood.

I'm a major fan of semi-silly holiday horror movies. So this little beauty is right up my alley and I've got to say as a fan of the genre, this show seems to be dead on the mark. I can't wait to see the rest of the episodes!
The dialogue is as punchy as it can be while still setting up the story in only a few minutes. This review is being written after just the first episode of the series, so I expect the dialogue to free up a little and get even edgier when all hell's breaking loose.
The acting is great for something like this. Usually this stuff gets sub-par quality actors but not here. They're all great and I've actually seen them all before in other things I like.
It's shot and lit like a serious horror film. Almost like a, dare I say, Michael Bay horror re- make. So the contrast of serious horror and very dark comedic scripting, is working great! At least it is for me!!!
I can't wait to see how zombified the Santa gets by the end! I'm already planning to be zombie Santa next Halloween when I take my son trick or treating and now it goes without saying, I must dress him up as Dick the elf!
