DIAL CODE SANTA CLAUS (1989) is a ludicrously fun action-horror thrill ride from France about a child genius who lives in a completely automated high-tech mansion. When he tries to make contact with Santa Claus over the proto-internet Minitel network, he accidentally lures a Charles Manson-like lunatic – dressed as Santa, naturally – into his home. With the murderous maniac running loose, the boy has to protect himself and his elderly grandpa using all the futuristic (1989) tools at his disposal. If it sounds like a bloodier and more terrifying HOME ALONE, made a year later, you’re right. This one, however, is not for kids, but horror-mad adults will gobble it up.
