It’s that magical time of year when we all gather together with our friends and family and rewatch the Christmas movies that we’ve all seen fourteen thousand times. Snuggled under a blanket, with a mug of hot cocoa in our hands, it certainly does feels like the most wonderful time of year. In an effort to add to the magic, we took it upon ourselves to recut “The Santa Clause” as a thriller. Because if you think about it, the movie’s actually full of heart stopping action. Seriously.
Man finds dead Santa Clause. Man steals his clothes right away. Man turns into Santa Clause. Man fails to convince doctors that his extreme weight gain and more extreme facial hair growth speed is of medical concern. Man kidnaps son. Man convinces his ex- wife he is Santa Clause and she still prefers boring dude with bad taste in sweaters. Man never gets his weight back under control.
Did reading that put you on the edge of your seat? Well wait until you watch “The Santa Clause: A Christmas Thriller” on Crushable …

The movie was as great as it always is, but the movie theater setting came with an unexpected perk: I sat next to a very chatty old man who had apparently never seen “Home Alone” before. He narrated pretty much the entire movie as I struggled to stifle my laughter. Here are some of his quotes that were just too good not to share: Keep reading »
