[Trailer] Blood Flies in ‘Jason Goes to Hell’ Director’s ‘Secret Santa’

Over 20 years later, Adam Marcus returns to horror with a new film.

Not to be confused with the 2015 horror movie of the same name, Jason Goes to Hell director Adam Marcus’ Secret Santa is coming down the chimney soon, centered on a family Christmas party where the blood flows as freely as the subtle jabs.

They’re not the Voorhees family, but the Popes may be just as dysfunctional!

In Secret Santa

“The holidays are a time for backstabbing and silent, annihilating judgment; but for the Pope family the time-honored tradition of passive-aggressive snark is always masked with a smile. But not this year. April Pope, the family’s golden child, is clean and sober and working her twelve steps. She has a new life and an amazing boyfriend, and she’s ready to make amends with her sister, Penny, for a horrible prank she pulled on her when they were in high school. April figures her mother, Shari’s, Christmas Eve party, complete with Secret Santa game, will be the perfect moment for forgiveness. Her gift and act of confession will help heal the tensions of all her loved ones.

But there’s someone else with a different idea…

The Popes run one of the country’s largest pharmaceutical companies, and someone’s going to give them a taste of their own medicine. Literally. And with a military grade truth serum spiking the holiday punch, anyone who has a cup will lose their mask of civility. And before they know it, saying what they wanted to say turns into doing what they want to do; and the holiday table soon runs red. It’s a Christmas massacre as those who haven’t drunk the punch try to control the ones who have. This year the truth doesn’t hurt… it kills!

    Even though ‘JGTH’ is pretty much hated by all ‘Jason’ fans I didn’t think it was the even close to the worst film, one thing it was though it was definitely the most brutal film. With this ‘Secret Santa’ it looks meh at best. One I could see myself throwing in for my family and I to watch maybe next X-Mas.

    • Jara Matthews

      thats not accurate at all. I can introduce you to mant die hards that feel its one of the finest films of the franchise.
      Only the ones who flipped over jasons bombing and need a hockey mask to be happy disliked it.
      I never heard anyone say a negative word about it until the franchise website guy started his onean campaign against it. I heard nothing but praise for 15 years until his website started the anti jgth movement.

      • Necro

        Well Jara being that you never heard anyone say a negative word about it, then you obviously don’t spend too much time on here then, or at least in the last couple of months. ‘Jason Goes to Hell’ for the most part gets absolutely shredded on here! Now I know that doesn’t mean ALL fans hate it and I should’ve worded my comment better in all fairness to fans that don’t, for that I apologize! But I’m telling you that you would have a field day on here defending the film given the right article/comment section. As for me I like the film a lot and I think it’s the most brutally violent one in the whole franchise.

  • No, horrid trailer

  • Kyle Cole

    Looks bad

  • Will Coors


  • Neto Ribeiro

    Who had the idea to sell a movie by putting “From the creators of JGTH and Texas Chainsaw 3D” on the poster?

  • Looks really low budget but I’ve been on a hunt for gory slashers so this might do the trick even if it is a CGI fest

  • Jarle Solbakken Fremstad

    There’s little else I hate more in my horror moies than god awful CGI blood. At the very least you could take two minutes out of your day to do some color correction during post.

    • Jérémy Kuprowski

      CGI blood CAN be done right… or exaggerated for comedic effect. But indeed, you SHOULD take a bit of time to do it properly. I don’t even understand why so many movies are using it as a cheap alternative when you can easily make some fake blood for next to nothing with the right ingredients.

      • Jarle Solbakken Fremstad

        I can see why movies with very low budget use it as it could save a lot of money on costumes and time cleaning the set between takes. Either that or any take involving blood could potentially have to be a one-take. But yeah, a little more effort in post and maybe it would at least blend in a little.

  • Meisha’s Taint

    I look forward to watching this and hating it next December

    Can’t possibly be worse than Red Christmas though……god that was awful

  • Nahuel Benvenuto

    looks bad

  • Adean

    I think it looks hilarious. But it’s not what a Secret Santa horror movie should be. I picture it more like an “I Know What You Did Last Summer” type.

  • Mike Messina

    That looks awesome

  • Shane o mac

    Sounds interesting

  • Dave

    Wow. This looks like a special kind of terrible. The dialogue is atrocious, and the acting is not any better. Just wow.

  • MrX13

    That movie looks really bad! That old man is forcing his lines and everything else looks dumb, pass on this one

  • abyx34

    Looks like a pretty unwatchable C-grade movie…

  • Hash-Slinging Slasher

    Needz moar Transformers muzik.

  • Kaijudude

    looks ok .

  • david c

    Thanks for that. I’ve just seen the movie. Money saved.
