Dial Code Santa Claus
Following its resurrection for American audiences in 2018, Dial Code Santa Claus has become one of our favorite yuletide movie treats, and we’re bringing it back so everyone can get in on the fun!
From our friends at AGFA:
Previously only available via VHS bootlegs — and a huge audience smash at Fantastic Fest 2018 — Dial Code Santa Claus (aka Deadly Games and 3615 Code Pere Noel) is an enormous discovery. Made a year before Home Alone (which, suspiciously, has almost the same plot), Dial Code is way more stylized and bloodier.
Thomas is a typical 1980s kid: he loves Rambo, computers, role-playing games and his dog. While mom’s away at the office on Xmas Eve, Thomas and his grandfather are left home alone — perfect timing for a disgruntled, perverted, bloodthirsty Santa Claus to raid the home down the chimney. But Hell hath no fury like a mulleted ten-year-old with an arsenal of toys!
“Plays like a blend of classic Amblin and a grindhouse nightmare. To say ‘this shit is nuts’ would be an understatement.” – SlashFilm
“Beautifully shot and crazed enough to keep you on your toes, this is a film that’d have a bigger cult following if more viewers actually had the chance to see it.” – Mondo Digital
