FEATURING A SKYPE Q&A WITH DIRECTOR LEWIS JACKSON!!!
Harry Stadling (Brandon Maggert – Fiona Apple’s dad!!!) is so obsessed with Christmas that he dreams of becoming Santa Claus. Despite his day job at a toy factory and general holiday cheeriness, it just isn’t enough. As his St. Nick fetish spirals out of control and grinches mock his beliefs, he loses touch with reality. Harry snaps and transforms himself into an red-suited, white-bearded avenger, bringing gifts to the nice and punishing the naughty… with murder! The ending is super strange and oddly sweet. John Waters calls it “the best seasonal film of all time. I wish I had kids. I’d make them watch it every year and, if they didn’t like it, they’d be punished!”
