Previously only available via VHS bootlegs, DIAL CODE SANTA CLAUS (aka Deadly Games) is your new favorite holiday slayride. Thomas is a typical 1980’s kid: he loves computers, role-playing games, and his dog. While mom is away at the office on Christmas Eve, Thomas and his grandfather are left home alone – perfect timing for a disgruntled, bloodthirsty Santa Claus to raid the home. But Hell hath no fury like a mulleted ten-year-old with an arsenal of toys! Made a year before Home Alone, the French-made DIAL CODE SANTA CLAUS has almost the same plot – only filled with more style, bloodshed, and Rambo references. – AGFA
