THE LATE SHOW
Dial Code Santa Claus
One of the best-kept secrets in cult Christmas cinema for almost 30 years, this French import (available stateside for the first time thanks to AGFA) cranks up the madness on a proto-Home Alone scenario as an imposter in a Santa Claus costume terrorizes a young boy and his grandfather on Christmas Eve. This one’s guaranteed to be a favorite in years to come, and you’ve got the chance to get in on it early!
“Beautifully shot and crazed enough to keep you on your toes, this is a film that would have a bigger cult following if more viewers actually had the chance to see it.” – Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital
**FRIDAY NIGHT 12/21: Catch a special DOUBLE FEATURE ($15) of Home Alone (8pm) and Dial Code Santa Claus (10pm).
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!
