FULL SYNOPSIS

This particularly bizarre horror variant on [[Performer~P16940~Joe Dante~joedante]]'s [[Feature~V20918~Gremlins~gremlins]] (1985) was directed by newcomer [[Performer~P100989~Jeff Mandel~jeffreymandel]]. The ridiculous plot concerns the efforts of a group of Nazis to set the stage for a Fourth Reich by mating one of Santa Claus' elves with a pretty teenaged waitress ([[Performer~P2894~Julie Austin~julieaustin]]). The cast is peppered with former television stars, including [[Performer~P43759~Deanna Lund~deannalund]] of Land of the Giants as Austin's mother (she kills cats and has a nude scene) and [[Performer~P206641~Dan Haggerty~danhaggerty]] of [[Feature~V29193~The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams~thelifeandtimesofgrizzlyadams]] as a drunken department-store Santa who used to be a detective. Even better is [[Performer~P206641~Haggerty~danhaggerty]]'s predecessor, a cocaine fiend who gets castrated by the Nazi elves. [[Performer~P100989~Mandel~jeffreymandel]] went on to co-direct [[Feature~V161847~Robo-C.H.I.C.~robochic]] (1989), which was almost as bad. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
