I thought it was great!
26 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this film in the stores I thought it was a stupid film about Santa killing people. I'm not a big fan of those type of movies that try to make Santa look like a killer. But I recently recorded this on TV and I really enjoyed it. It is a killer Santa movie but not like most of them. It's more like a mystery film. And I'm 13 and I watch horror movies a lot and I never get scared of them but this is terrifying. The mask the he wears is the thing that's scary. I've never seen the original. I wanted to before and I have Silent Night, Deadly Night 3-4&5 (got em in a set) but I've never fully watched them but only 3 is connected to the original but I don't think it featured the Santa costume just the killer. Anyways of you love horror go watch this it's funny, scary and awesome.
