Boxing Day Horror Show for 2017

Several years ago, this blog started an inspiring little tradition to help our readers adjust to the end of the holiday season by posting the most dreadful holiday movie imaginable each Boxing Day.Why? Oh, I don't know. It seemed like a good way to bridge that huge divide between the thrills and beauty of Christmas and the despair and let-down of the following day. I can assure you of one thing, we'll be able to test out this theory for quite a few more seasons yet as there is an awful lot of dreadful material out there. And I'm not talking about three or four stars on a five-point scale. I'm talking about vile, nauseating films that leave you wondering how in the name of God anyone outside of a sheltered workshop would ever have anything to do with them,

Take this year's selection, for instance: "A Visit to Santa," the 13-minute short released by Clem Williams Films back in 1963. There's no evidence that Clem Williams Films ever released a follow-up to this winner -- or anything else, for that matter. Once you see this, it's pretty clear why.Please enjoy this year's Boxing Day Holiday Horror Show feature, "A Visit to Santa."
