Trivia

Upon release the movie poster proved to be very controversial. Various organizations of concerned parents tried to boycott the poster, which features an image of a 'zombie St. Nicolas' as opposed to the friendly St. Nicolas the people in The Netherlands are used to. Dutch director Johan Nijenhuis became the spokesperson for the movement that tried to boycott the poster and he even went to court, claiming the poster would damage the festive season and cause trauma with young children.

Goofs

From the conversation the Superintendent has with the Mayor (at the end of the film, when the amount of victims is being discussed, namely 300) it can be deducted that the Mayor, as head of Police, as well as the Superintendent were both well aware of the dangers of a rampaging Niklas and his servants on 5 December during a full moon recurring every 42 years. The Mayor highlights that Amsterdam had to learn to live with this event for centuries now. He says that one day it will stop, but not in their lifetimes. They had 42 years to prepare and yet no extra police were on duty, as most were celebrating the 5th December festivities. Also Goert Hoekstra's report was never considered as a possible solution to the Niklas problem and halfway the film the Superintendent even starts reading Goerts report as if he is aware of the Niklas problem for the very first time.

Jingle Bells!! YOU'RE DEAD!!
24 November 2012 | by natashabowiepinkySee all my reviews

Aah, just the sort of film to put you in the Christmas spirit! Jolly old Saint Nick riding his horse over the rooftops of Amsterdam with his army of zombies, cutting the throats of the adults while devouring the children. Fair gave me a warm glow inside, to see the blood strewn around the snow and those decapitated heads rolling down the street. Think I'll go put up my tree now and hang my decorations, I feel so festive. In the meantime, enjoy this new Xmas classic... It may be nowhere near as good as It's A Wonderful Life or White Christmas, but it probably reflects my own sensibilities about the holiday far more than those two ;) 5/10
