We love to share horror shorts on the site and MAD SANTA seems like the perfect festive gift for all you horror lovers.

Written and Directed by Bruce Blain MAD SANTA was written, shot, edited, and scored in 48 hours for the Vancouver 48 Hour Run N Gun Horror Film Festival.?? It won the coveted Audience Choice Award and received Honorable Mention at the Los Angeles Short Film Festival in March. It also received several nominations at the Vancouver Bad Ass Film Festival.

Bruce Blain has been a salesman, a bar manager, a managing editor, an entrepreneur, a carpenter, a teacher, but in 2004, while living in Thailand, he became a film, TV, and voice actor. He quickly established himself, booking scores of Films and TV Commercials, leading him to the conclusion, finally, that no other career would do.

After a 13 year stay in Southeast Asia, he moved to Vancouver to pursue acting full time. Since arriving there, he has worked on such TV shows as; The Arrangement, Shut Eye, iZombie, Supernatural (twice!), Rush, Motive, Untold Stories of the ER and has a recurring role as Vic on Riverdale; and such films as Max 2: White House Hero, Wedding Bells, Leprechaun: Origins, Rampage 2 and 3, and Lonesome Dove Church; and has been the Campaign Voice for several VO campaigns.

Oh and before you watch Mad Santa make sure you are ready! As Bruce Blain says “Do be warned, it is quite intense and fairly violent. Definitely not for the kiddies.”
Remember Don’t Make Santa Mad!
