Christmas Evil

In the spirit of the holidays, we here at HororrNewsNetwork.net want to know about your favorite “Holiday horror.” One classic you may not have seen is 1980’s “Christmas Evil.” A “B” movie, derranged gem. Here’s a brief synopsis: Harry Straddling (Brandon Maggart) was traumatized as a child, when late at night on Christmas Eve, he walked into the family living room and saw his father, dressed as Santa Claus, having sex with his mother. Now grown to adulthood, Harry is malignly obsessed with the holiday season, particularly the myths of Santa Claus; he works for a toy company, he sleeps in a Santa suit, his apartment is stuffed with Christmas memorabilia, and he spies on the neighborhood children, keeping track of who has been good and bad. Harry’s insistence that the toy company maintain high manufacturing standards does little to endear him to his co-workers, and his brother Phillip (Jeffrey DeMunn) thinks Harry has started to go off the deep end. One day, Harry snaps, and after dressing up as Santa, he steals a truckload of toys and delivers them to a mental hospital as presents for the young patients — all well and good. But when Harry is then confronted by a group of people who don’t believe he’s Father Christmas, Harry reacts with violence, setting off a murder spree. From the way this movie is shot to Brandon Maggarts performance as Harry, this is one you should catch on VOD….. even if “Frosty” is on that night. SO..what’s your favorite Holiday Horror film?
