Christmas Movies Actually

Oct 8, 2019

"Code Pere Noel" (aka, "Dial Code Santa Claus") is the best Christmas film you've never seen or heard of. Released in France in 1989, this yuletide horror film came out a year before the similarly-themed "Home Alone," but never reached an audience in the US. We want to help change that! It's "Home Alone" meets "Rambo" meets "Silent Night, Deadly Night" meets "The Shining" meets "John Wick" with direct references from films of its era. And it's a lot of fun! Film critic Dave Canfield joins Collin and Kerry as they talk about the film's history, availability prospects and what makes it so damn special. Also, Kerry talks about "A Clockwork Orange" (1971), "VIY" (1967) and "The Haunting (1963) for the "We Just Say book" segment.
