Alain Lalanne stars as the mullet-wearing Thomas de Frémont, a young boy left home (with his half-blind, diabetic grandfather) on Christmas Eve by his mom. When a psychopath dressed as Santa Claus breaks into the house, it’s up to Thomas to protect the home, forced to live out his action hero fantasies and outwit the adult invader. — If Christmas movies like Home Alone and Rare Exports are your cup of tea, I can almost promise you are going to love this one.” – John Squires / Bloody Disgusting

 

“Exceptionally smart, funny and kinda fiendish too. It’s a great family action movie for families who hate the holidays. — Summing up: A gift that keeps on giving.”
– Peter Martin / Screen Anarchy

“This Père Nöel is as unstoppable as Jason Voorhees”
– Richard Whittaker / The Austin Chronicle

“Combining the best of both ’80s horror and action cinema, it feels very much like an amalgamation of First Blood and Silent Night, Deadly Night.”
– Breanna Whipple / Nightmarish Conjurings
