Weird horror anthology flick dealing with creepy tales found on a videocassette while trick or treating. A creep clown named Art appears in all the stories. Is he human? some kind of demon? a ghost? is he even a real clown? Either way he's popular enough to get his own feature film "Terrifier!"
As a child, Harry Stadling, sees his mom being groped by Santa Claus scarring him for life and for some reason making him obsessed with Christmas. One night when he's an adult he decides to be the REAL Santa and goes out rewarding good little kids and killing and mutilating those who he believes are naughty.

First Appearance: Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge
Hey remember how Andre Toulon was a maniac who designed puppets to murder people and had a serum made of human brains that brought them to life? Remember how he killed himself in that hotel in Bodega Bay, California in 1939 to prevent Nazis from getting his secrets? Well it turns out that was all a big misunderstanding. What happened was in 1941 Berlin nazis killed Toulon's wife while trying to force him to give up the secrets to how he animated his puppets so they could use it to reanimate their dead in order to have an unkillable army. Toulon uses his puppets to get revenge!
