Secret Santa is a feature length film that tells the story of a group of eccentric college kids, struggling to get through the hectic exam period. This Horror/Comedy is a tribute to B-Movie Slashers but also takes the conventions and turns them upside down. A liquor filled party is planned. Adding a Secret Santa exchange for fun. Little do our characters know… A killer is in town and has a special present for all the good (and bad) girls and boys. Dare to open your present? It might be your last!

Holiday themed Horror films are not uncommon. Yet, these films do compliment the winter festivities. Secret Santa is marketed as;

….a bloodsoaked love letter to classic holiday horror and slasher films from the 1970s and 80s.

The above excerpt is according to a press release DecayMag received this week. McMurran indeed delivers the hallmarks of an 80’s slasher Horror film. The formula includes; a group of college kids, a liquor-filled Christmas party, and a demented serial killer.

Be sure to view the trailer embedded above. From the promotional video, it is easy to note the classic Horror film aesthetics. Humour and gore are the co-stars to McMurran’s film.
