Let’s Take a Ride on “SANTA’S SLAY” on Mitch Mittens Reviews!

MMReviews

To think it is already the holidays. Time to gather around for this holiday edition of MITCH MITTEN’S REVIEWS! SANTA’S SLAY(2005) is one of those HUGE misunderstood holiday horror films not many have heard of and few have seen. I viewed it several years ago but it was fantastic to hear you CINSOMNIACS and SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS wished me to review it. Strap yourselves in because here we go!

Twas the Night before Christmas dinner, all through the night the Mason family was hosting a dinner party. Not just any Christmas diner party. A Christmas party that would be the last Christmas party of their life. Mr. Mason (played by the legendary JAMES CAAN) pleads for a “moist” turkey, Gwen’s husband gets “handy” with the golddigger Mrs. Virginia Mason, and the twins nieces bicker over present requests. Then there came a clang on the roof, the thumping of boots, oh who who who comes to visit the Masons this fine Christmas Eve?

Why is it……Santa Clause?

santas-slay-04Or BILL GOLDBERG?

This is only the beginning, we travel to the town of Hells Township (what a name) where he begins “just desserts” holiday murdering spree. Can you imagine growing up with the joyful tales and images of a old man with a swollen belly who brought Christmas joy to the doors of children of all ages to all of a sudden become a murdering giant wielding Christmas decorations, lights, and stripper poles across the town.

douglas_smith_1253934934Why? Why is he doing this? We meet teenager named Nicholas who lives with his somewhat crazy inventor grandfather. Only his grandfather is not as crazy as he may seem. After Nicholas comes home to his grandfather’s homemade bunker, he sits down to hear the true tale of Santa Clause.  According to the tale, Santa (son of Satan) lost a contest with an angel of heaven. The cost? Santa had to cease from killing and slaying for Satan for 1,000 years and turn the official “Day of Slaying” into a day of joy aka Christmas. Now, that time is up and Santa is no longer Mr. Jolly.

SANTAS-SLAY-2The rest of the film is filled with unique kills, thrills, and cheer to keep you wanting more and more. One death in particular will probably be enjoyed or not so enjoyed by Star Trek:TNG fans. I wonder who is going to get his collection of irreplaceable collectables? 

Anyway, this holiday horror extravaganza is the gift that keeps on giving. I officially give this film a 10 out of 10 Hypnotic Eyes! You barely hear about it, it is truly misunderstood, and it’s one of those holiday horror films who should join the space alongside BLACK CHRISTMAS(1974) and SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT(1984).

Have any more Cinsomniacs or Sleepless Knights tuned into these films? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Do you agree with the rating? Would you like Mitch Mittens to do another review in the middle of the week? Leave your comments or private massage and let us know! If you have a suggestion of another film for MITCH MITTENS to review, leave it in the comments. Thank you for “tuning in” and come back for another dose of misunderstood holiday cheer from MITCH MITTENS REVIEWS!

Things Are Gonna Get a Little “Hairy” with the CINEMA INSOMNIA THEME OF THE WEEK!

DSC03570 copy“Even a Man who is a pure heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.” (THE WOLF MAN 1941)

Werewolf_of_london_poster_05Last week, we put FRANKENSTEIN and his monster up for our week theme. This week, we take a look at another misunderstood monster: THE WEREWOLF! The werewolf or lycanthropy legend has spanned across the world for a few centuries. According to the ancient Roman mythological tale, it all began with King Lycan who in false believe that the gods had any power, served them human flesh to them for dinner. He was vilely punished for his unforgivable deed by being transformed into a werewolf and in this form, he would be cursed to feast on human flesh. Since then, the legend has grown and transformed into it’s own legend spanning throughout the generations through the silver screen into the minds of audiences everywhere. The first film incarnation was in silent film form entitled THE WEREWOLF (1913) but it was lost in a fire. The first SOUND motion picture incarnation was WEREWOLF OF LONDON (1935). You don’t really hear about this film, but it does give a temporary “cure” to the werewolf curse. 

wolfmanTHE WOLF MAN (1941), on the other hand, we see and feel the conviction Lon Chaney Jr. goes through when he first gets bitten by the werewolf and as he attempts to try to comprehend something he doesn’t believe truly exists and tries to find a way out. Coincidentally it was this film that paved the way for future werewolf films.

Over the next few decades, Hollywood used the “victim” card on younger audiences in films such as THE WEREWOLF (1956), I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF (1957), and THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF (1961). The lore and the tale changed even more when the 70’s and 80s rolled around, turning this misunderstood creature to be fighting between the balance of good and evil. This week, we will look into this misunderstood monster through clips, trailers, pictures, and film posters. We have an ultra fierce week up ahead for you!
