Finally watched both installments of the prototypical Santa-slasher series. As slasher films go, they're entertaining. The second suffers from the fact that almost half of it is flashbacks to the first film, but benefits from a much.. quirkier performance from its lead actor.

And I just love every minute of the second one's 'street rampage' scene. Much has been made of the 'Garbage Day!' line, but for my money, the funniest part is right after he kills his girlfriend's ex, and she's screaming at him : "I hate you! I hate you Ricky!" and he turns to look at her, and there's this little flicker of recognition in her eyes that she is screaming her hatred at a murderous psychopath, and she literally says : "Uh-oh."

Comedy gold.
