No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
At least one of the better slasher films made in the States in the mid-'80s, though the degree to which that's an actual compliment is debatable.
Among the dozen or so victims of Santa's slay ride is a man who's choked to death with a string of Christmas lights and a young woman who's impaled--topless, of course--on a pair of moose antlers.
Not only is the movie vile and callous, but also it's pretty darn stupid.
As slasher films go, this is about average. The sets are cheap, with most of the budget seemingly going to the gore effects.
