Step right up folks and see how you,too,can make a zero "slasher" flick for about one dollar or less--and then manage to see it available on Amazon for purchase.
First, just any ole video camera will do. Borrow the one your grandparents brought at Wal-Mart when they shot their church choir singing. You don't want to worry about such things like lighting, special effects, effective angles.
Just point your camera at your neighbors and you're on your way!
Now, for the really terrifying "psycho santa", just tell your tall, lanky trailer park bud to wear just what he usually does with mowing his lawn or fishing down at the creek. So we see him wearing faded, cut-off jeans, white socks and a patch over one eye. Dab his face with some red stuff that might look like blood and there you have him--the scariest psycho monster since Mickey Mouse.
In your first scene, have a young lad in the front seat of his car and his girlfriend. Give him about l0 pages of dialogue, as he drones on about the legend of a poor misfit who was forced to wear a white sock and no shoe--or something like that. I had already nodded off to dreamland halfway through his endless droning and his attentive girlfriend who keeps nodding her head as if totally fascinated.
They're murdered by the psycho Santa. You knew they were terrified beause we see both tragic victims by the way they open their eyes real wide and squeal.
Then the movie moves to a lake and some more neighbors of the film maker sit around a table arguging about the psycho Santa.They appear to be actually drunk from all the Bud Lite we see them guzzling. Two of the fun-lovers get into a canoe, with the male hero strumming a guitar.
I think this must have been a sign of the psycho santa because he suddenly emerges from the water,gasping for breath, and the couple don't see him. A few minutes later, we see the doomed couple recoiling in fake horror as they suddenly see psycho santa. He kills them with some more red stuff squirting toward the camera
The director shows us what a raunchy guy he is by having all the girls taking off their tops. One of them is shown for a long time soaping up her upper torso. This really scared me. I knew this had something to do with psycho Santa but by then I'm afraid my heavy lids finally closed for a long sleep.
Oh,by the way,I don't know what the title means, since I saw no sign of Christmas anywhere in this amateur exercise in movie making. And as for psycho Santa, he looked more like a semi-drunk guy from a trailer park who can always brag to his bar buddies how he appeared as a terrifying psycho slasher in a video that looks like it was made by a buncha junior high guys during their lunch break.
