The Dark Santa

by on November 30, 2012

When the world is attacked and all hope is lost, a hero will rise. Is Batman ready to save the world from an alien menace? Of course not, Batman’s not real. The earth needs a real hero, the Earth needs Santa Claus. Yes, this is an origin story of sorts for what happens when Santa needs to put aside the happiness of the children of the world and start fighting for their lives! Created as a spec trailer to help sell a script at the Christmas Knight website, the makers may have found the greatest camp/cheese sweet spot of all time. It’s Santa Claus Conquers the Martians for the 21st century and we should all be so lucky to see this get made as the fun b-movie it should be.
