The movie "Santa's Slay" is a horror-comedy film that was released in 2005. It stars former professional wrestler Bill Goldberg as Santa Claus who is actually a demon that goes on a killing spree. The movie also stars Douglas Smith as Nicholas Yuleson, the grandson of a local pastor, and Emilie de Ravin as Mary "Mac" Mackenzie, Nick's love interest. The movie starts with a hilarious twist on the classic Christmas story. Santa Claus, instead of delivering presents and spreading joy, goes on a killing rampage. He decimates a family having Christmas dinner by throwing a turkey leg through their window, breaking the glass before following it inside and killing them all. The comedy aspect comes in when Santa's victims are famous celebrities, including Fran Drescher, James Caan, and Chris Kattan. The story then switches to a small town in the United States where we meet the young, rebellious Nicholas Yuleson, who is stuck working at his grandfather's deli. He is trying to impress his love interest, Mac, who is also stuck in the town for the holiday season. Nicholas is a bit of a troublemaker, and he's been in trouble with the law a few times, so the local police keep an eye on him. Nicholas' grandfather, played by Robert Culp, is the pastor of the local church and makes a living spreading the word of God. He has been waiting for Santa's return for 1,000 years, which is all he talks about. Nick is curious about his grandfather's obsession with Santa's return but doesn't take it too seriously. As the movie progresses, it becomes clear that Santa Claus is not just a regular Santa who has gone mad, as previously believed. Instead, he is a demon who was forced to become Santa Claus as punishment for losing a bet with an angel. However, his 1,000- year contract is now up, and he is free to wreak havoc as he pleases. The movie's suspense builds up as Nicholas and Mac are on their way to a Christmas dinner hosted by Nicholas' ex-girlfriend's family. Santa Claus interrupts their dinner, and a thrilling chase between Santa and Nicholas begins. It quickly becomes apparent that Santa is indestructible and incredibly powerful. The movie's finale takes place at the local church, where Nicholas' grandfather has been waiting for Santa's return. Since Santa's powers come from being Santa Claus, he is powerless in the church because it's a sacred place. The characters use their wit and ingenuity to try and defeat Santa Claus, leading to an epic showdown. Overall, the movie is a fun, festive horror-comedy that blends humor and suspense seamlessly. The cast is top-notch, with Goldberg as the perfect menacing Santa Claus, and Smith and De Ravin providing great performances as the lead characters. The film's special effects are also top-notch, especially when it comes to the gore and violence. The movie's unique take on the classic Christmas figure adds a fresh twist to a beloved holiday that is sure to entertain audiences of all ages.
