Santa 3If there is one thing we’ve learned from recently viewed short films here at Hidden Horrors, it’s that children refuse to stay in bed while evil is lurking about on Christmas Eve.

This fact gets reinforced in the 2014 fantasy-horror short film, aptly named Santa.

Running at only a minute and a half, Santa is a truly effective short, from the atmospheric lighting, to the haunting soundtrack and the well-done creature effects.

This time around, Santa takes on a truly frightening figure, with a demon-like head and elongated fingers and claws. He makes Tim Sullivan’s “Santa Claws” look like a muppet. Although there is no explanation to the creature’s intensions, Santa should please genre fans around the world looking for a quick shock this holiday season.
