Short Film of Death: ‘Merry Christmas’ Gets Revenge on Saint Nick

M is for Merry Christmas

Why Watch? To celebrate The ABCs of Death 2‘s search for the second 26th director, we’re posting 13 contest entries for 13 days. All of which start with M is for.

Today’s iMerry Christmas from Daniel Piza Ruiz.

I’ve got a soft spot for Christmas horror, especially work that frames Santa as the monster he is, and while this short doesn’t take him back to his villainous roots it still manages a different role for him to play. After all, he’s a guy doing good work, but he’s also the one responsible for denying you the cool stuff you asked for every year. Shot impressively with a bizarre bit of gore, this is for every kind who’s ever wanted to confront Santa about being placed on the Naughty List.

What Will It Cost? Around 3 minutes
