Have a sense of humour before viewing,
This review is from: Santa's Slay [DVD] (DVD)
It's a cheap b movie. Some of the acting is well below average, some of the effects are a bit ropey. However, let's view the film not as a wannabee critic, but as someone entering this film expecting a junk ride.
Bill Goldberg is great as the title role. He hams it up and his size certainly matches the image the makers wished to conceive.
The idea that Santa (anagram of Satan)is a demon who has now become released from a thousand year good will curse (a Nordic curse due to losing a bet with an angel) is a truly original concept.
The idea of mixing some truly demented christmas songs into the mix is adding up the fun. It's action packed with a few amusing deaths, and the vision of Santa being pulled along by a huge bison is simply incredible to see.
The downside is the predictable 'twist' regarding the lead's grandfather, and a typical ending which will bring a sequel one day, but just enjoy this film and to the other one star reviewer GROW A SENSE OF HUMOUR
