The pitch: “Die Hard but Bruce Willis is Santa, Nakatomi Plaza is a rich lady’s house, and Hans Gruber is John Leguizamo. Also add in some Home Alone, a lot of bone-crushing, and jokes.” The pitch meeting might not have gone down exactly like that, but the resulting film is called VIOLENT NIGHT, and we’re talking about it today with the director of the new RLJE/Shudder/AMC holiday horror film The Apology! Then, Alonso will adjudicate a Santa/Scrooge movie quiz.
