  • Mention of big boobs, dicks...
  • Kissing between a couple in a disgusting way

Violence & Gore

  • Bloody violence and action throughout. Some blood spurts and shooting, but the last act is quite violent.

  • The villain shoots a security guard.
  • Two men are shot in rapid succession, with small blood spurts.

  • A man is stabbed with an icicle and blood is briefly shown.
  • A teen boy is struck in the face. The man who does it later decides who he wants to kill next. At one point, one of the antagonists mentions "bashing someone" with a nutcracker, but this never happens
  • A man's finger is broken via a nutcracker. His finger breaks (offscreen) and is later shown severely bruised. One of the antagonists mentions that nut crackers "aren't called finger crackers" and mentions putting the man's testicles in the nutcracker. They're interrupted before this happens, however.
  • A man is struck in the head with a nail. A bowling ball then falls on his head, driving the nail into his brain and killing him. Some blood shown but no brain or skull or anything like that.

  • A man is pulled into a snow blower, the shredding is offscreen but tons of blood is shown spewing out.
  • People are killed with a sledgehammer. These kills are often gory.
  • The deaths in this film are brutal.
  • Near the third act the film all of a sudden gets really brutal and gory. This includes people getting sliced and decapitated by ice skate, a man having a bunch of nails penetrate his back, chin and skull. Santa using a sharp candy cane to stab people, people being shoved into a woodchipper. Brutal fights, shootings, explosions etc. Some graphic gore near the end.
  • At the beginning of the film, Santa gets drunk and leans out of the sleigh and throws up, and it lands on the bartender. Gross but played for laughs.
  • Santa brutally kills a lot of soldiers with just some everyday tools in a shack

Frightening & Intense Scenes


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • After killing the villain, Santa is then shot multiple times by a henchman. Not long after, a woman appears by the henchman and shoots him in the head.
  • After a big fight between Santa and the main villian Santa manages to shove him up a chimney with his powers. This crushes all his bones and pretty much destroys his entire body. As soon as Santa makes it to the top of the chimney a shower of blood is seen flying everywhere while Santa holds his headless and bloody mess of a body. He throws it to the ground where we get a quick close up of the aftermath.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A man's ball are threatened to be crushed by a nutcracker, but is interrupted right before they crush them. Played for laughs, but is quite intense in the moment.
