There are a lot of Santa Claus slashers. But with Don’t Open Till Christmas, Kris Kringle characters are the vics not the perps.

Don’t Open Till Christmas is a 1984 British slasher film. It is directed by Edmund Purdom, who also stars. But based on the end project, viewers can tell it is the work of >1 director in the chair.

The flick introduces a mysterious killer murdering Santa Claus impersonators in London during Christmas season, first off, through a Black Christmas-like POV shot.

Thereafter, a Santa at a nightclub is murdered in front of dozens of witnesses. Turns out, it’s the father of one, Kate, whose boyfriend soon becomes embroiled in a giallo-like murder investigation by New Scotland Yard.
