Best and worst movie Santa Clauses

'Scrooged' (1988) -- Worst
This may go against everything we just said in praise of "Silent Night, Deadly Night," but believe us when we say that the gun-toting Santa Claus depicted in the movie-within-a-movie, "The Night the Reindeer Died," is not the same thing. "Deadly Night's" homicidal Claus operated on a rigid moral code similar to the real Claus. This Santa is rooted in pure sensationalism without tradition and even bows at the altar of celebrity in the form of guest star Lee Majors. This Santa was intended to be a crass bastardization of the original legend and in that, the filmmakers succeeded.
