A horror movie where a child dares to question the existence of Santa and is consequently driven to madness. As lighthearted as Orwell's 1984.
The one thing that always bothered me about this movie, and about every other movie this studio came out with afterwords ("Christmas Carol", "Monster House", "Mars Needs Moms") is how deep into the "Uncanny Valley" all of the animated characters go, where all the children look like moving wax-figures with dead, dead eyes... creeps me out.
A deep journey into the Uncanny Valley indeed, that black girl gave me the creeps something fierce. Way more scary than the Alien monster. Maybe remake this for a 2014 release?
