When an excavation unleashes Santa and his elves, a young boy, along with his father and a couple hunters, must save the town.


WARNING some gore, small amount of nudity


So… Santa in this is evil. You know, like, kidnap the naughty kids to torture, kill and eat type thing. And one young boy knows what’s going on but no one will listen to him until it becomes obvious they haven’t any choice.

It was interesting though. Certainly entertaining. I didn’t find it very creepy, but it was good. The actors were awesome. The main kid wasn’t creepy and he was actually good at acting. The plot was interesting. It’s not often a child saves the day. Usually kids are creepy and killing people. The end was a little odd. I can’t see it being all that good… I wonder if there is, or is going to be, a sequel. It would make sense.


It probably isn’t something I’d usually watch (I mean, what’s a horror movie with like, no gore? I don’t watch to see hunters/butchers doing their jobs), but I’d recommend it. Especially for a feel good Christmas movie.
