Now that the bet is over, Santa Claus wants revenge.
Nicholas and his girlfriend Mary try to escape from the killer and find a way to stop him until the end of Christmas....
Featuring probably one of the funniest openings in a Santa based Horror ever, the movie is pure cheese from beginning to end.
The film is stupid, it knows it's stupid and wears it proudly.
Goldberg appears, says something funny, kills someone and then disappears. several times.
Inbetween these scenes are just people talking and panicking, and it gets boring very quickly.
Goldberg is the saving grace in this, but he really makes the film the funny piece of tosh it is, and I mean that with the highest of respect.
It's funny, with a good story, but you'll either love or you'll just ignore the fact that it exists.
On the technical side, this Polish version has been remastered to a good degree. The picture is very clear and looks to have been taken from an original print. Compared to the VHS full frame version, the top and bottom of the picture have been matted slightly and the sides have been restored giving a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The audio options are Dolby DTS (Digital Theatre System) or Dolby 5.1 stereo. Language options are English or Polish and removable Polish subtitles.
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
I was amazed at how many different ways Santa killed people and didn't repeat himself once, who knew that he was that inventive :) ( sorry about that but couldn't help myself).
I will admit that some of the acting is a bit iffy but you have to accept that with young actors, just concentrate on the killing and mayhem and you'll be adding this to your favorite funny horror movie list after about the first 5 killings. Hope this movie will slay you ( there I go again) as much as it did me, Enjoy.
In this dark twist on the Santa legend, old St. Nick is actually the son of Satan who lost a bet to an angel. As the loser, he was compelled to spend one thousand years spreading joy to the hearts of boys and girls all over the world. He hated every minute of it, but now those thousand years have passed and Santa is finally free to unleash his true evil nature. Eschewing the traditional eight reindeer for a single evil "helldeer," he guides his sleigh to Hell Township and starts laying the smacketh down all over town. This ain't your traditional fat old Santa; this dude is as big and bad as they come.Read more ›
