The Santa from Silent Night, Deadly Night

We'll give it Santa — he's versatile...and deadly. In this 1984 slasher film (whose trailer — which resulted in protests because of its holiday-time depiction of a killer Saint Nick — was perfectly parodied by director Eli Roth in his fake trailer Thanksgiving), the killer Claus murders his victims with an axe, a knife, and a bow and arrow, hangs one with a set of Christmas lights, impales one naked girl on a set of antlers, and tosses another gentleman out of a window. You definitely don't want this guy coming down your chimney.
