Friday Night Drive-In

The movie that did for Xmas what Halloween did for...well, Halloween. Another tale of a psycho Santa continues Dismember December at the Drive-In! When Harry walks down the stairs on Xmas Eve and spots Santa and Mommy doing more than just kissing, he's scarred for life. He forms an obsession with jolly old Saint Nick, and even becomes a toy maker himself. Eventually, the lack of Xmas Spirit he sees everywhere leads him to snap and go on a killing spree.

This one's not my favorite holiday horror flick, in fact I think I've only seen it maybe two or three times. Still, it's worth a watch at least once. I kinda wish the kills were holiday themed, but this movie has a sense of humor that makes up for the lack of a body count or inventive kills. I can't help but laugh at the ending. Enjoy "You Better Watch Out" also known as "Christmas Evil".

I think the genius of this movie is that it's not strictly a horror movie at all. There is bizarre behavior and violence but ultimately it's more the emotional/dramatic/fantastical character study of a disgruntled, disenfranchised loner who just so happens to harbor a Christmas obsession, as opposed to yet another killer-Santa-body count flick.
