Satan Claus is an Italian/American low budget slasher horror, written by Simonetta Mostarda and directed by Massimiliano Cerchi.

When I watch a horror movie from the 80’s, I inevitably have the thought of “how the hell did this movie get made?” Don’t get me wrong, there are some genuinely amazing horror films that came out of the 80’s that are stone cold classics.  John Carpenter’s The Thing is one of my all time
