Holiday cheer isn’t the main theme of Mad Santa, a violent short directed by, and starring, Bruce Blain who plays a psychopath in a Santa hat.
The film is violent and follows the temperamental man of the title in his basement as he goes on a bloody diatribe, taking revenge on a woman and those close to her because she wouldn’t hire him as a mall Santa.
Mad Santa was written, shot, edited, and scored in 48 hours for the Vancouver 48 Hour Run N Gun Horror Film Festival.
It won the Audience Choice Award and received Honorable Mention at the Los Angeles Short Film Festival in March.
Mad Santa also received several nominations at the Vancouver Bad Ass Film Festival.
