Description

Rudolph's in a Cadillac, Santa's in hiding and Christmas itself is being bought and sold with the fate of the world at stake. The Reign of the Anti-Santas tells how Christmas fell into the hands of Santa's spoiled kids, low-level gangsters, faded TV-movie heartthrobs, tech bros and lifestyle gurus, and what happens when one elf and an old Santa on the lam step up - against all odds - to save the day.

A raunchy thrill ride through seventy Christmas Eves, The Reign of the Anti-Santas is Goodfellas meets 'Twas the Night Before Christmas - just in time to wash the candy-cane taste out of your mouth, get Mariah Carey out of your ears, and change how you see December 25th forever!
