    I watched Mrs. Claus last night after putting the tree up. It's pretty bad, so it'd be tough to recommend. Pretty standard slasher fare, only on a Z-grade budget. Helene Udy is in two scenes, but Brinke Stevens has a slightly larger role as the local cop.

    There have been a ton of uber-cheap Christmas slashers over the past few years, so if you've seen movies like Dismembering Christmas, Once Upon A Time At Christmas (which was kind of hilarious, guilty pleasure), or All Through The House, this is a few notches below those. It was also pretty mild on the Christmas atmosphere, just some lights and a Christmas decoration here and there. Filmed in Texas, so no snow.

    I will give it credit, as it's probably the only slasher movie where the murder spree is set off by a dildo. That's probably the most remarkable thing about it.

    I was bored. It lingered on the death scenes too long, and there wasn't much visually interesting.

    Although Udy and Stevens added an unexpected class to the whole thing.
