In LaMorte’s slasher parody:
“The Mean One (David Howard Thorntonlisten)) is a green-skinned, furry grump in a Santa Claus outfit who lives on a mountain high above the town of Newville and despises the Christmas season. Young Cindy You-Know-Who (Krystle Martin), whose parents were slaughtered by The Mean One twenty Christmases before, returns to town to seek closure… but is about to discover that this demon with a heart two sizes too small is still quite itching to carve up the roasted beast. .”
