Films: Christmas Evil (1980)
Location: Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: Some people just REALLY want to spread the wonderful Christmas spirit. Unfortunately, the real Saint Nick would be horrified to hear that someone made a martyr out of himself just to fulfill his values.
History: As a kid, Harry Standing was scarred for life upon seeing his father engage sexually with his mom while dressed as Santa Claus. Now working at a toy factory, Harry makes it his mission to document all the boys and girls of the town and see if they're naughty or nice, giving dirt to the former and nothing but joy to the later. As time goes by, he sinks further into delusion, believing himself to truly be the real Santa, and is prepared to kill anyone who defiles the season of giving...
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Eventually, the townsfolk figure out that Harry's the one responsible for the killings. The ensuing mob chases Harry and his van off a ledge...where the van suddenly flies towards the night sky like a sleigh...either he's the new Santa now, or he's just having an illusion before he dies. We honestly can't tell.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3-While definitely crazy, Harry at least had the capacity for trying to spread joy to those who deserved it. A pity that we as a society don't really appreciate murder being the solution to everything wrong with the world.
Trivia: -This film was also known as "You Better Watch Out" and "Terror in Toyland".
-Director Lewis Jackson quite literally came up with this film while high on pot and hallucinating a homicidal Santa. He then spent the next decade trying to get this film made. Time well spent...we guess?
