SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE (1985) Review by Steve Kirkham



3 stars
StudioCanal. UHD/Blu Ray/DVD/Digital. Out Now. Cinema re-release November 24th
With a simple onscreen title of Santa Claus, this was known as Santa Claus: the Movie via it’s advertising, in an effort to recall the previous success Superman: the Movie from the same production team. They also brought back Jeannot Szwarc, who had helmed Supergirl (1984) for them, and husband and wife team David and Leslie Newman to write a script that in some ways echoes their writing on Superman.
So is the movie a much loved classic deserving of a rediscovery with a 4K spruce up and polish or is it, as many critics have written, an unmitigated disaster? Like any movie like this, its probably somewhere in-between, and checking the User Reviews on the IMDb there are clearly fans out there, though having rewatched it on UHD I am afraid I tend towards the festive fiasco.
A kindly old man called Claus (David Huddleston), who delivers wooden toys he has made to local children ventures out in a blizzard and ends up frozen solid, with his wife Anya (Judy Cornwall) and their reindeer – they are a magically transported to the North Pole by a sparkly star and greeted by Patch and his fellow elves – as he is now to be Santa Claus.
And so begins the legend of the white bearded fellow in a big red, white trimmed coat (an image which was popularised by Coca Cola), delivering parcels around the world (like DHL, though more reliable). Amongst the elves in the workshop you may well spot some familiar faces including Melvyn Hayes, Don Estelle and even Burgess Meredith pops up for one short scene as an ancient Elf.
After several centuries, Santa has become weary and his wife suggests he takes on an assistant in the shape of the loyal Patch. When this ends in disaster, the newly promoted elf decamps to New York and falls in with evil toy manufacturer B.Z. Overplayed by John Lithgow the film partially livens up with his over the top acting.
It’s not enough however to save this colourful but charmless outing. It tries it’s hardest to be magical but ends up being cheesy and is severely let down by a weak script and visual effects which look even worse in 4K. It isn’t helped by the Henry Mancini score that attempts to constantly clue you in when you are supposed to be enraptured and spellbound by what is onscreen. You won’t be!
Apparently several directors were approached to handle the project including Lewis Gilbert, Robert Wise and even John Carpenter (now that would have been interesting).
This new 4K restoration, which we are reliably informed had 150 hours spent on it to clean it up, is a disappointment visually – whilst it is vividly rendered, much of it has dancing grain which is even more distracting when the effects scenes kick in.
Look out for a young Nicole Appleton of the group All Saints as one of the little girls in a ballet class.

DOOR MOUSE (2022) Reviewed by Steve Kirkham





3 stars
The Movie Partnership. Digital download. Out now

Door Mouse is an indie Canadian neo-noir mystery thriller about a broke comic book artist called Mouse (terrifically played, complete with “Mickey Mouse” hairdo, by Hayley Law, Riverdale). To make ends meet, as drawing her Whoreific strip isn’t paying the bills, she also works as a dancer at a burlesque bar run by baseball bat wielding Mama (Famke Janssen, the most recognisable face in the cast). When Doe Eyes, one of the other girls that work there, and Mouse’s buddy, goes missing, our intrepid scribbler decides to turn detective to try and track her down. She is helped by her friend called Ugly (Keith Powers, who isn’t, ugly that is).

Before long even more of the female workers have been snatched and she finds herself drawn into a sinister world full of unsavoury characters, putting herself in danger as she tries desperately to find out what has happened to her co-workers.

Playing out like an old school detective movie, complete with voice over, this is stylishly shot by Mike McLaughlin, with visuals that are at once both gritty and colourfully flashy, and it cleverly incorporates animated sequences, drawn by our protagonist, to further its narrative.

Better known as an actor (he also appears in the film as drug dealer Moony) Avan Jogia both directs – in his feature film debut – and also wrote the script. It shows him as a talent worth keeping an eye as he clearly has a distinctive vision. It does skirt with style over substance but just about manages to keep things together – almost becoming a budget version of Eyes Wide Shut at the end, with cheaper papier mache masks!

Cultdom beckons – It’s certainly different and all the better for it.

INFINITY INDEX 1 by Mark Campbell


We’ve covered a lot of ground – and space – in Infinity magazine in our first three years of publication. So much so, in fact, that at times we forget what we have already written about. Well now, thanks to the sterling efforts of Mark Campbell, we have an idea to everything we have burbled on about. We we going to put this stuff in the magazine but frankly it would have taken up a huge amount of space and might have looked just a tad boring. Instead we will be posting these indexes here so you can check them out whenever you wonder if we have already covered your favourite film or TV series from the worlds of sci-fi and cult. Here’s Mark’s invaluable guide to the first 12 issues.
