Director Statement

I love black comedies. Twisted tales that make you laugh when you know you shouldn't.

THE NAUGHTY LIST is ELF meets RESERVOIR DOGS. Two bumbling mobsters who are as much children as they are men, and a happy, sweary, alcohol swigging Santa Claus who's not averse to watching a bit of adult entertainment with Mrs. Claus. Definitely not one to show your kids.
