Name That Trauma:: Rich B. on a Santa Claus Corpse Burned in Effigy

December 17th, 2013 by unkle lancifer · 4 Comments

Hey guys! Love your web site and while I have some confessions I have more of a question, hopefully you and maybe your readers can help. I’ve been trying to find a movie to be exact. Last year I saw a youtube Christmas mixtape of various footage of Christmas themed horror movies, one clip in particular drew my attention. It had a group of people outside around a bonfire, and there was a man dressed as a priest with the collar saying how evil Santa was. The people had a effigy (or maybe even a corpse) of a Santa. The effigy had a corpse face and they were feeding it into the fire. Can you or anybody help me with the name of the movie? Nobody has been able to tell me where that clip came from, I’ve been on various comment boards, looked for it in a search engine and on blogs to no avail. Hopefully this can be solved. Thanks!!!

Always a fan,

Rich B.

    I’m so sad i don’t know this!I thought I knew all the x-mss horror! Very humbling.

    I thought it was day of the beast (1995) because of the priest but that didn’t pan out

    and then I thought it might be Christmas Evil because that has vengeful townsfolk in it but no dice there either!

    What could it be??!!! On the bright side this may end with me having a new Christmas horror movie to watch….fingers crossed.

    Seriously, Unkle this thing is driving me freakin’ crazy. I mean I have a whole bunch of Christmas themed horror movies and not one has a scene like that. I went back on youtube to try to find that Christmas mixtape and it was non existent. I was going to ask the person who put it up what movie it was. SIGH. I am thinking maybe it was off of some tv Christmas special, documentary, a non horror movie or even a comedy. I remember laughing watching that clip, it was so over the top. Maybe I am just looking the wrong area. Hope somebody can help us out:(

    It sounds a bit like the flashback scene in “Saint”.

    Hey so I found the movie. YEAHHHH!!! Finally, it was weird how I found it. I was actually at some party my friends threw, I had a little too much to drink so I laid down in the back bedroom in my buddy’s house. He is a horror, sci fi and fantasy B movie fanatic like me. A couple of my other buddies came over, they just got done playing a show with their thrash metal band “Blood Lust”. The guitarist, Hanky had brought over a movie to watch and they put it on. As I started to nod off I heard “This isn’t Santa Claus, its SATAN CLAUS!!!” Followed by laughter, I was wide awake and jumped out of bed running, sure enough it was the movie I’d been looking for!!! I yelled “What the f**k is this!” They looked up at me and laughed. Apparently the scene is from a fake documentary called “America Exposed” aka “This is America vol. 3” apparently Hanky said this was a bootleg. I had them rewind the scene. Want to thank everybody and Father Merrin I am going to check out “Saint” anyways. Sounds like a interesting flick!!! I’ll have to hunt up a copy of “America Exposed” Hanky said its alot like “Faces of Death” alot of fake documentary footage that claims to be real.
