You don't often associate horror with Christmas (though a few have tried) but this Finnish effort really makes something different - Santa Claus isn't a jolly old man - he's a vicious near-demon and his "elves" are decrepit old men who like to bite (and decapitate people). Still, it takes a humorous approach to the whole thing and lead child actor Onni Tommila does an excellent job (and his wardrobe is spectacular). It's outlandish, but I had a good time with it.
