With Christmas a mere week away, I figured it was the perfect time to enjoy some of the great holiday related horror flicks that have come to light over the years. My first entry, the 2005 Satanic Santa romp, Santa’s Slay.
Plot/ Iconic wrestler Bill Goldberg plays the devil's son who lost a wager with a angel and was forced to spend 1000 years playing Santa, but now the wager of that time has run out, and good old Santa isn't so joyful anymore. He makes up for lost time and starts to kill people.
Luckily, I did not go into this movie expecting anything, especially not a rational plot, good acting, or even credible special effects. However, I must say what I found was quite enjoyable on some absurd level. It does have some decent characters, some hilarious moments and Goldberg actually does a decent rendition of what an evil Santa should be. Ironically, there are some very creative kills, with Santa finding the oddest way of killing people throughout the flick (especially during the opening star-studded scene which had me rolling before the first ounce of blood had fallen). Unfortunately, to me, there is not enough gore to coincide with the amount of death and destruction, which would have definitely taken it to another level. Honestly, two Immaculate Conceptions, one Jesus and one Santa Claus, who needs more? If you are looking for a friendly, family-oriented Christmas movie, stay clear of this carnage-filled holiday massacre.
