1980, Park Circus, 87 min, USA, Dir: David Hess

The students of Calvin Finishing School for Girls are throwing a big Christmas party while the headmaster is away. However an uninvited guest dressed as Santa Claus has only one present to deliver: death. The directorial debut and swan song of cult film star David Hess (THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT) is the very first Santa slasher, beating both CHRISTMAS EVIL and SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT under the Christmas horror tree. It’s the perfect sleazy stocking stuffer that’ll put a little blood in your eggnog this holiday.
