THE PLOT:

Harry Stadling loved Christmas and believed in Santa Claus, there's nothing wrong with that in itself, but Harry believed he was Santa Claus and it was his job to watch the children in the neighborhood to see if they are being naughty or nice. But this Psycho Santa will do more then leave coal in the stocking of bad people.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I think I found a movie that is worse then Santa's Slay, I mean Santa's Slay had some good points, it had a sense of humor going through it. But Christmas Evil is dark, it's humorless pile of garbage which only a truly sick mind could come up with and only a sicker mind would enjoy it. I mean explain to me something, was he Santa? Because if he was that would make even less sense. Near the end, the Police are on to Harry's killing spree and it's about time by the way and start chasing him. Harry's van crashes off the side of a cliff and flies off. Hello? Crazy people can't make their vans fly and Santa wouldn't be peeking in windows. This is just an awful piece of trash and deserves THE LUMP OF COAL.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

What a horrible, horrible movie. I never got to the flying van, I couldn't stand the characters or the story long enough to wait for the ending. The plot made no sense and the writing and dialog was just god awful, I think monkeys on pot could have written a better plot, with their feet. If you want to watch a good holiday horror, watch any SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT movie or even a JACK FROST movie, anything but this crap fest. The only one who better watch out is who ever gave this garbage pile the green light. THE LUMP OF COAL.
