Don't Open Till Christmas

Weekly Alibi

DIRECTED BY: Edmund Purdom

REVIEWED: 12-29-97

In a slight (though hardly better) twist on the formula, this British stalk-and-slash features a deranged psycho hunting down and killing bell-ringing streetcorner Santas. Apparently he saw his mom killed by Santa when he was a kid. If you've got a deep-seeded hatred for Kris Kringle, this is the film for you. Assorted guys in Santa suits are strangled, dismembered, torched and slashed. One not-so-jolly old elf goes castrata in a public toilet. That's the second Santa to lose his chestnuts! These filmmakers got some serious "issues" to work out.
