Bad Santas Bring Christmas Fear, No Cheer (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Santa Claus is a legend with many names: Kris Kringle, St. Nick and Father Christmas, to name a few. And when we think of the jolly, heavy-set man in red, happy images of presents galore and pleasant childhood memories flood our imaginations. But representations of Santa aren't always the picturesque dreams we had as children -- on the contrary. Sometimes jolly old St. Nick is an evil, burglarizing, murderous man with drinking issues. With movies like "Bad Santa," "Silent Night, Deadly Night," and "Santa's Slay," Père Noël has never seemed so evil.

Watch the mashup above of Bad Santas in film and see if you'll be leaving fewer cookies for St. Nick this year.
