DIAL CODE SANTA CLAUS (1989) 

(aka DEADLY GAMES)

Torn Light Records returns to the Esquire Theatre for one of the most infamous and unbelievable holiday films of all time: the French action/horror mind-melter...

Young Thomas is obsessed with action movies and video games. So much that, when his mother is out, he delights in turning the sprawling mansion where he and his invalid grandfather live into a makeshift battleground: concocting and settling elaborate traps. Home alone, grandfather aside, on Christmas Eve, Thomas is soon faced with an unexpected - and very unwelcome - guest, a department store Santa Claus, who is, in fact, a deranged maniac on the loose! Putting his skills into action, Thomas begins an all out assault against the murderous Saint Nick, rather than risking his Christmas turning into something closer to Halloween...

Unavailable to see for decades in the United States, this will be the first time this film has ever played in Cincinnati, and it will be presented in it's recent 4K restoration! The film will be accompanied by a trailer reel, curated by Torn Light, of some of the wildest and most horrific Xmas themed movies of all time!
