Christmas Bloody Christmas | Joe Begos Interview

Abraham Benrubi as Santa in Christmas Bloody Christmas

Joe Begos has a vision of bringing a run-amok killer robot with a Christmas backdrop for a horror movie. With Christmas Bloody Christmas, the film instantaneously becomes a cult favorite in the ever-growing subgenre of holiday horror movies.

In this bloody and gory terror, it stars Riley Dandy (That’s Amor, Kappa Crypto), Sam Delich (Spiderhead, Mr. Inbetween), Jonah Ray Rodrigues (Mystery Science Theater 2000, Victor Crowley), Dora Madison (Dark Places, Friday Night Lights), Jeremy Gardner (After Midnight, The Battery), with Jeff Daniels Phillips (The Munsters, Westworld), and Abraham Benrubi (ER, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose).

Here is the official synopsis:

It’s Christmas Eve and fiery record store owner Tori Tooms just wants to get drunk and party, until the robotic Santa Claus at a nearby toy store goes haywire and makes her night more than a little complicated. Santa Claus begins a rampant killing spree through the neon-drenched snowscape against a backdrop of drugs, sex, metal, and violence, ultimately forcing Tori into a blood-splattered battle for survival against the ruthless heavy metal Saint Nick himself.
