This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm kicking off the holiday season with two European horror films with multiple titles featuring movie-obsessed children facing off against psychos in Santa Claus outfits, which has to be one of the more peculiarly specific themes I've ever booked an episode around.
Anyway, I'll be discussing 1989's Deadly Games (AKA 3615 code Père Noël, Dial Code Santa Claus, Game Over, and Hide and Freak) and 2005's A Christmas Tale (AKA Películas para no dormir: Cuento de navidad).
