An Interview with Author D. G. Martin

There is an entire genre of Santa Slasher movies. It may have started with “Tales From the Crypt: And All Through the House”, though you could say it was Bob Clark’s “Black Christmas.” It led to movies like “Silent Night, Deadly Night” (which even spawned a sequel), “Santa Claws” and at least a dozen others. And apparently, there are books based around the same theme like Hammer and Sleigh: The Rise of the Crimson North.
