Christmas Evil (1980) Widely recognized as the best of the Christmas horror efforts, Christmas Evil is the story of a boy who loves Christmas. He is scarred as a boy when he learns that Santa is not real. Throughout the rest of his life, the toy-maker tries to make the Christmas spirit a reality. He becomes obsessed with the behavior of children and the quality of the toys he makes. When he is met with hypocrisy and cynicism, the resulting snap causes him to go on a yuletide killing spree to complete this dark comedic horror.

  • You'd better take care...Santa is coming to town!
  • He'll sleigh you.
  • Better Watch Out... Better Not Cry... Or You May DIE!
Movie Quote(s):
  • Harry "Santa": You want it all... but you're no longer a child.
  • Harry "Santa": But if you're bad, then your name goes in the Bad Boys and Girls Book, and then I'll bring you something... horrible.
  • [last line after Harry gets away from the vigilante mob] Harry "Santa": But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight, "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night."
Movie Trivia:
  • When Harry slips on the street running from the mob, he really did slip, and Lewis Jackson left it in the film.
  • Kathleen Turner was turned down for the role as Harry's sister-in-law.
  • SPOILER: While many people think Harry does in fact fly off at the end, he actually just drives off the bridge and kills himself. An explosion is heard, but people mistake it for the sound effects of Harry's brother rolling down the hill into boxes.
