Santa's Summer House (2012)

How bad is it? It's not as terrible as I expected.
Should you see it? Not really. It's nothing interesting.

After covering about twenty Christmas films, mostly god-awful (that Ice Cream Bunny still hurts), I found one directed by David DeCoteau, whose name appears all over this blog, with a cast of action stars and Chris Mitchum (who I thought died, quite frankly) as Santa. People get lost driving in the fog and end up at, well, Santa's Summer House. They play croquet for about eight minutes of the film, for no reason other than to fill screen time. Cynthia Rothrock is Mary Claus and action stars Gary Daniels, Daniel Bernhardt, Kathy Long plus a couple others are their guests. It's a typically syrupy Xmas special. You keep waiting for action, given the cast, but there is none.

  1. I have seen a few of David DeCoteau movies reviewed over at Geek Juice Media over at AntiSocial Commentaries. Those are a lot of fun. Check em out
