Santa Claus gets the Terminator treatment in the trailer for Joe Begos’ festive horror flick ‘Christmas Bloody Christmas’ – streaming on Shudder on December 9th
Put the kids to bed early, hide behind the sofa and settle in for some festive horror fun because Shudder is premiering Christmas Bloody Christmas this holiday season. Premiering on December 9th, Joe Begos’ unapologetic Christmas slaughter-fest reveals what happens when a department Santa Claus, upgraded with the latest A.I, goes haywire and sets off on a murderous rampage. And if you ever wondered what Santa Claus meets The Terminator would look like, you’re in for a real treat. Albeit a mind-warping, axe-murdering one!
The movie looks to be an absolute blast…in a dark and twisted fun kind of way. And with a robotic symbol of Christmas let loose on an unsuspecting public, every festive trope is on the chopping block. Especially with the killer muttering “ho ho ho” every time he claims another victim. But don’t take my word for it. We’ve got the chilling new trailer ready for you below. So, grab a mince pie, turn down the lights and try your best to keep your name off of his naughty list!
It’s Christmas Eve and fiery record store owner Tori Tooms just wants to get drunk and party, until the robotic Santa Claus at a nearby toy store goes haywire and makes her night more than a little complicated. Santa Claus begins a rampant killing spree through the neon drenched snowscape against a backdrop of drugs, sex, metal and violence, ultimately forcing Tori into a blood splattered battle for survival against the ruthless heavy metal Saint Nick himself.
And if that isn’t enough to have you reaching for a candy cane and a baseball bat, the great team at Shudder has sent over the awesome new key art poster. Check it out below.
Alongside the axe-wielding Saint Nick, Christmas Bloody Christmas stars Riley Dandy, Sam Delich, Jonah Ray Rodrigues, Dora Madison, Jeremy Gardner, with Jeff Daniel Phillips, and Abraham Benrubi.
Okay, so Christmas Bloody Christmas looks to be an absolute blast. A proper Christmas horror rollercoaster ride. One packed to the brim with more bloodletting and axe murders than Santa can shake a candy cane at. And when coupled with some truly awesome Christmas iconography and some impressive production value, we could be looking at our next Christmas classic. One worth Santa Claus coming to town for. And that alone is worthy of a festive celebration! So make a list, check it twice, and get ready to find out who’s naughty or nice…because Santa Claus is coming to town…WITH AN AXE!
Written and directed by Joe Begos, Christmas Bloody Christmas will unleash Santa’s fury on Shudder from December 9th. What say you Force fans? Will you be putting the kids to bed early and braving the wrath of an axe-wielding Santa Claus? Sound off below.
