Widely recognized as the best of the Christmas horror efforts, Christmas Evil is the story of a boy who loves Christmas. He is scarred as a boy when he learns that Santa is not real. Throughout the rest of his life, the toy-maker tries to make the Christmas spirit a reality. He becomes obsessed with the behavior of children and the quality of the toys he makes. When he is met with hypocrisy and cynicism, the resulting snap causes him to go on a yuletide killing spree to complete this dark comedic horror.Written by

The character of reporter Ricardo Bauma was done as a caricature of Geraldo Rivera, who at the time this film was made had yet to become a national celebrity and was mainly just known by people on the East Coast in America. See more »

While it is understandable that viewers might identify the rousing "Merry Christmas everybody!" at the end of the credits as the crew adding a personalized touch to the final moments of the film, it is in fact the greeting that ends the Jackson Trio's "Jingle Bell Hop" that is used during the end credits.

A deleted scene towards the film's begining showed Harry being promoted in his job. Brandon Maggart had a hangover from the day before while shooting the dancing scene and can be seen becoming dizzy and nauseous at the end of the scene. See more »
Admittedly not the best the genre has to offer, but fun none the less...
I hate to admit it, but i have a psychosis. It's really a passion that has blown way out of preportain. I love holiday horror films. At over fifty i think i have one of the largest collections around. The Santa killers are my favorite of this sub genre. Now, while admittedly next to the likes of the Godfather and such this is a very bad movie. BUT! I still highly suggest this film. It really is an interesting look into the psyche of a deranged mind. If you get a chance watch this movie, the ending alone is worth the buck fifty rental fee. This film is one of the true gems of my bloated movie collection.
