I must be insane to have watched this film.

In my life I have seen thousands of movies and there are a handfull that are so bizarre as to be unforgettable. This may very well be one of them.

When I picked this film up and saw the title I actually had to do a double take as it is one of those things you really cannot believe upon first seeing it. But here it was in all it's glory.

Part of this, well most of this is played as a comedy, however it just doesn't seem to mesh well with the horror elements of the story. It seems a young man named Cody (Reid Miller) has drawn a comic book entitled "Santa Jaws". During the holiday season he is grounded to his room for not doing well in school.

Suddenly he finds his comic book coming to life. Seems he has a magic pen that causes anything he draws to come to life. This sets up the rest of the film. Santa Jaws wears a red santa cap on his top fin and is decorated with Christmas lights!!! Oh, eats people and can only be harmed or destroyed by Christmas items!!

I have seen twisted plots and stuff before, but this one really takes the cake.The effects are bad as one sadly comes to expect in this CGI era, but seeing this shark with a santa hat will at least bring you a chuckle or two.

Sadly as well the budgets are so low in these films that all realism is abandoned. What I mean by this is that the standard plot involves a small group of people who must fight the threat and there is never any authority figure called in to help and most of the extras just stand around and wonder what the hell is going on.

It hard for me to explain here, but I am sure most of you know exactly what I am talking about. Anyway, if you want to see something totally different and way out in left field, then this is a film for you. You'll find your limits tested, but believe it or niot you might find something to actually like in this movie. Beware, the ending, just check it out for yourself.
