Dial Code Santa Claus

Keep the holiday season alive for one more night with a screening of this outrageous French thriller that SlashFilm’s Jacob Wall said, “plays like a blend of classic Amblin [films] and a grindhouse nightmare.” Previously only available via VHS bootlegs—and a huge audience smash at Fantastic Fest 2018—Dial Code Santa Claus (aka Deadly Games and 3615 Code Pere Noel) is an enormous discovery. Made a year before Home Alone (which, suspiciously, has almost the same plot), Dial Code Santa Claus is way more stylized—and bloodier. Thomas is a typical 1980s kid: he loves Rambo, computers, role-playing games and his dog. While mom’s away at the office on Christmas Eve, Thomas and his grandfather are left home alone—perfect timing for a disgruntled, perverted, bloodthirsty Santa Claus to raid the house after coming down the chimney. But Hell hath no fury like a mulleted ten-year-old with an arsenal of toys! This one must be seen to be believed!

Tickets: $9 (members), $14 (nonmembers)
