Then the policemen arrive and managed to shoot him down when he was about to slay Krampus and exposed him to be the manager in the mall, Mr. Taylor. This is a trouble in the mall that the Dangerous Dan had been talking through his broadcasting.
The Writers View:
Let me begin by saying that the movie is a better shot, written and acted than the normal shocker. The film interweaves nicely the four stories and the semi-story of the DJ, William Shatner. Every story was narrated nicely and was varied in sound. The movie is so slick and directed, edited, and shot so well together – especially that there were three directors involved. The dialogue was not always its’ greatest, but heck it is really a good horror film so it is way over the average genre. There were so many nice scary scenes in the movie.
