On this episode, we spotlight a film we’ve been trying to get our hands on for at least a couple years. It’s 36:15 Code Pere Noel, also known as Dial Code Santa Claus, or Deadly Games depending on where you find it. There’s a legitimate case to be made whether John Hughes stole many of his ideas for Home Alone from this film. Even if the similarities are just coincidence, this film is still an absolute brainmelter from start to finish.
We’ll break down all the gory details, all the Home Alone similarities, and all the killer Santa motifs right here. We also get into the Minitel computer system, The Adventures of Milo and Otis for some reason, and oh so many video game detours. Don’t miss it!
