Christmas Collection: Christmas Evil

Year: 1980

Length: 100

Rating: R

Language: English

Categories: 1980s, murderer, holiday, Stephen Kingy

Also known as You Better Watch Out and Terror in Toyland this holiday ho ho horror is about a guy who saw his mother’s leg get touched a lot by Santa on Christmas. He grows up to be a toy-making murderer who doesn’t like his seasonal joy rejected. In a Santa suit he goes on a killing rampage, slaughtering his… coworkers and such. The story isn’t overwhelmingly intriguing, and to be honest, the toymaker’s acting would have better-suited a pedophile. The movie drags quite a bit in the middle and is fluffed with constant grunting and mood swings of Christmas song humming. The ending washes away any hopes of decency as ***SPOILER*** villagers chase the serial killer around the town with torches. The one thing the movie can really depend on is the pure bliss of the Santa mustache-beard situation.
