What Could Be the Plot of  Violent Night?

Violent Night is a powerful, gritty version of the story about Santa Claus that is based on a myth. This isn’t your typical happy Christmas story, as the title shows, but it is still a Christmas story. It’s Christmas Eve, and Santa is on his way to deliver gifts to the people on his nice list, as he does every year.

But he had no idea that a group of thugs would come and mess up his work and make a bloody mess of the night he had planned so well. As soon as he gets to the house of one of the girls on that list, he is surrounded by bad guys with weapons and attacked.

He only wants to discreetly flee and continue with his night, but the assailants won’t allow him to do so. So Santa shows you a side of himself that you’ve never seen or even imagined. The house and the residents are being held captive by the mercenaries in exchange for a large ransom.

What they fail to anticipate is that Father Christmas would use all of his magical abilities to take them on and destroy them one by one as retaliation for their heinous conduct. Despite the sad turn that the happiest day of the year takes, everything will certainly turn out okay because Santa will once more make it a very cheerful Christmas. Not for the bad people, that is.

Watch the Trailer of  Violent Night Trailer

Fans have been waiting a long time for the official trailer for Violent Night, and now it’s out. Let’s be honest: you don’t want to be on this Santa’s “naughty” list, because he doesn’t just give bad people a lump of coal. He does something much more dangerous instead, which is exactly what they deserve.

Who Came Up With the Idea for Violent Night?

Tommy Wirkola, a Norwegian filmmaker known for turning cherished classics into ominous stories with a contemporary context, is the creator of Violent Night. Consider the movie Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

The Kill Bill spoof, the Norwegian comedy-horror series, Dead Snow and its follow-up Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, What Happened to Monday, and The Trip, among others, are some of Wirkola’s best-known earlier works. Additionally, he is slated to develop and direct Spermageddon in 2023.
