‘Santa Jaws,’ The Movie About A Murderous Shark In A Santa Hat, Is Now Streaming On Amazon SyFy

If you love cheesy holiday movies but you’re not into rom-coms, boy, have I got the piece of cinematic genius for you. Santa Jaws, the SyFy original movie about a murderous shark in a Santa hat, is now available to stream on Amazon and I highly recommend you do so ASAP.

  1. I’m not sure how they weren’t sued for copyright infringement. I mean, this is clearly a bizarre holiday version of JAWS, but maybe the creators were just too amused by the sheer ridiculousness of Santa Jaws to even contemplate bringing forward a lawsuit. I mean, let’s be real – this movie is no real threat to the classic.
  2. Wait, so what is Santa Jaws even about? I mean, beyond the obvious “evil shark in Santa hat kills many people for no reason,” the official IMDB synopsis states: “Cody is an aspiring comic book artist who happens to be gifted a pen which changes reality, as he first draws Santa Jaws making it come to life as Cody’s family and friends are picked off. First no one believes him but soon his remaining family and friends find out it’s true and race to battle for survival! Who will win?” Wouldn’t you like to know!
  3. The shark isn’t even real! I mean, it is real in that it manifests from a drawing, but it’s not like a murderous Santa-hat wearing shark was actually swimming around in the ocean prior to Cody’s drawing. It’s all that kid’s fault!
  4. If you’re looking for something lighthearted, Santa Jaws is for you! There’s literally nothing about this movie that you can possibly take seriously, and that’s what’s so fun about it. It’s definitely the kind of distraction we need this time of year!
