It's not the best Christmas for cops Reiniger (Vincent Notice) and
Steinman (Robert Arensen), because there is a serialkiller loose in town,
and it seems they have to work Christmas Eve in order to trace him down.
not the best Christmas for former action star Rich Tague (John William
Young) either, because he's fired from his job as mall and cable access TV

bad movie, its grindhouse-style directorial approach and oftentimes
consciously offending screenplay will surely appeal to indie horror fans
(me included), and it also benefits from some above-average performances -
it just should have been a bit more coherent to come across as really
