James Caan Double Feature

Every year for the past few years, a bunch of us transition from Halloween to Christmas. For me, the transition is borderline devastating, as I find myself weeping as Jim takes down all of my spoOoOoOOOoooky props and replaces them with garland and blinky lights that don't have skulls on them.

Since the transition can be so hard, we all do it in a way to move smoothly from one extreme (Halloween horror) to the other (Christmas enchantment).

We use, what has now been coined as the "James Caan Double Feature" to smooth into the winter wonderland.

What is this, you ask?

Well, James Caan, of The Godfather fame, happens to star in not one,but TWO Christmas themed movies:

Santa's Slay:

Santa's Slay is absolutely ridiculous. First of all, it stars the wrestler Goldberg as its main character: This guy:

As if that isn't ridiculous enough, here is the cast of characters that only star in the first 8 minutes of the movie:

Can you name them all?

Well, even if you can't, it doesn't matter, because the rest of the movie doesn't even have a single shot of them. They are only cameos in the beginning. The rest of the movie contains a bunch of people I've never heard of.

So basically, Santa's Slay is about a BAD Santa Claus, who made a bet with an Angel over a curling match, loses, and then comes back to take his revenge on the township of Hell. I know, you can only imagine the Hell jokes that get thrown around in this movie.

Overall, don't take this movie's great for a laugh and there is an incredibly fake and hilarious dog punting scene in the beginning. I ask you to watch this movie, pay attention to the creature that pulls his sleigh, and check out his awesome fireball shooting action!

Ho Ho Ho Horror!

I can only hope on behalf of all the MB blog readers that over the Christmas season, and throughout the year, you will still blog.

Just because Halloween is over doesn't mean it has to be over.
