A petty thief becomes involved with a beautiful woman who manipulates him into joining a gang of thieves who plan to dress up in Santa Claus outfits to commit their next robbery.
This Yuletide thriller has a better title than it does a plot. Not exactly a bad film, but it's not particularly good either. Certainly worth a watch if you want to witness a lot of dead Santas.
4/10
