Bad Santa

Play Trailer

Meet Willie T. Soke, a booze-addled, sex-obessed safe-breaker whose vulgarity knows no bounds. He’s also the local shopping mall Santa. Willie, alongside his criminal cohort, is about to embark on an annual grift, a tradition that involves gaining unfettered access to a mall before robbing it blind. Only this year, things don’t go entirely as planned. Jaw droppingly funny and uncompromisingly inappropriate throughout, Terry Zwigoff’s seriously twisted seasonal tale is a debauched delight.

"An antidote to forced holiday cheer."
"Plugs into - and electrifies - the mostly unacknowledged grimness... beneath our holiday cheer."
"Makes no compromises and takes no prisoners."
