Santa Claus

Always make sure of DVD-compatibility!!!

When he was a  mere 6 years old, Max (played by Fletcher Hammond as a kid, by Jared Korotkin as a teen) only wanted to prove that Santa Claus actually existed - but the contraption he built to do just that accidently killed Santa (the real one), and since then Christmas has become a loveless holiday. Max back when had the good sense to hide the body, but has felt guilt ever since - until now, 12 years later, he and his best friend Paige (Ophelia Rivera), have managed to revive a dead rat in a science experiment in their school, which gives Max an idea. So he steals a body from the local morgue, implants Santa's brain (which he has conveniently kept in a jar all those years) into the body, and with a bit of electricity (well, a lot of it), Santa comes back to life. Just now, Santa (Michael Vitovich) is evil and sets out to kill all on his naughty list. And of course it's not long before Santa finds a house of partying teens to wreak havoc in, and all of Max's attempts to reign Santa in are thwarted by a zealous morgue assistant who recognizes Max as the body snatcher but has no idea what he goes up against when going after evil Santa whom he perceives to be '"his" body ...


Ok, Santastein might be as silly as its title suggests, and exactly about what the title suggests, but the film is well aware of its own ridiculousness and has no reservation when it comes to poke fun at itself and its slightly crazy subject. And fun is really what the film's about that's in equal parts teen comedy reminiscent of John Hughes teen flicks with a more comedic edge and slasher movie, with plenty of allusions to vintage Frankenstein movies thrown in for good measure. And since the film mostly stays clear of the merely moronic, uses plenty of clichés in a self-ironic way and respects its horror roots, this is quite simply pretty hilarious genre entertainment.
