DIAL CODE SANTA CLAUS (aka DEADLY GAMES)

René Manzor, France, 1989, RM, Horror

“Plays like a blend of classic Amblin and a grindhouse nightmare. To say ‘this shit is nuts’ would be an understatement.” -- Jacob Wall, SlashFilm

“Beautifully shot and crazed enough to keep you on your toes, this is a film that’d have a bigger cult following if more viewers actually had the chance to see it.” -- Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital

Your holiday programming will never be the same after the North American debut of this outrageous Christmastime slayride!

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 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 Xmas Eve, Thomas and his grandfather are left home alone -- perfect timing for a disgruntled, perverted, bloodthirsty Santa Claus to raid the home down the chimney. But Hell hath no fury like a mulleted ten-year-old with an arsenal of toys!
