CREEPY CLASSICS presents...
Every weekend we're watching movies together...whether you're in Pennsylvania USA, or Sydney Australia. It's a throwback! Back to the days when you had the anticipation for waiting till the weekend to see the classic horror or science fiction film that was listed in the TV Guide. The plan is to watch a movie at 7:30PM on Saturday night in your own time zone. Or, if you can't Saturday night...anytime during the weekend. Then, we'll all get together and e-mail our thoughts on the film...a few paragraphs...or simply a sentence if you'd like. They after-viewing reviews appear on our Creepy Classics/Monster Bash News Page. See the latest thoughts posted by viewers ther now.
Concept submitted by Mike Adams of Carteret, New Jeresey.

Santa Claus (1959)

This is it! The Christmas movie that warped the minds of a generation! Released in the United states to the children's matinee market during the holiday season through the 1960s. It features Santa Claus fighting a devil from Hades named "Pitch." Pitch has tried to teach the children of earth evil, but Santa Claus won't have it and is risking everything on Christmas eve to save the holiday from the demons of the dark! A wizard, Santa's sci-fi lab, robot reindeer, a creepy dream sequence of giant dolls taunting a little girl....total weirdness. You'll find yourself simply shaking your head in disbelief. Imported from Mexico and dubbed in English. A holiday must for every fan of strange cinema. An alternate title could be SANTAS CLAUS VS. THE DEVIL!
I saw this first in the perfect weird child matinee experience. Mom was Christmas shopping and dropped me off to see it at the local theatre (The Guthrie, in Grove City, PA). The posters made it look like a happy Santa movie...it was a Kiddue Matinee. But the views are so twisted from the American tradiional Santa Claus...preying on gulit and fear. Scared the crap out me at age five in the theatre...but, I loved it. It took from 1965 until about 1987 for me to figure out what it was (it haunted my dreams for decades) when I happened upon it on VHS. And more memories came rushing back.
Now it's a Christmas tradition in this house.
