This santa is just a terror...to filmmaking. The 1996 comedy film 'Santa with Muscles' involves amnesia, paintball games, evil scientists, multi-millionaires, and mistaken identity. It's a real caper, all surrounding a professional wrestler in a santa suit. Ahhhh...America. Breathe it in. {Photo Credit: Cabin Fever Entertainment}

Mr. President, Jack Bauer has taken santa down. Why? We're not sure, but if Jack Bauer from '24' believes that santa is a terrorist, then santa is a motherf**king terrorist. Plus look at him! He's bloody. The video is a spoof from the folks at 'Rebel Christmas Cards,' and went viral in 2009. {Photo Credit: FOX/Rebel Christmas Card}

Lecherous Santa from the song 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus'
Spoiler Alert: the santa in the song 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus' is actually just probably your dad, but still. It's sort of weird that they like to do it in a santa suit. Also, I know we said it's probably just your dad, but...what if it's NOT? {Photo Credit: iStock Photo}

Cranky Santa from 'A Christmas Story'
Cranky Santa from 'A Christmas Story'
MGM
This santa does NOT have the Christmas spirit, y'all. All Ralphie wanted was that silly BB gun, and all santa wanted was to get the hell out of the mall. Why? Well he hates the smell of tapioca, and if Higbee thinks he's working one minute past 9:00, he can kiss Santa's foot. Ho ho ho. {Photo Credit: MGM}

Bad Santa from 'Bad Santa'
Bad Santa from 'Bad Santa'
Remind me to never invite Billy Bob Thornton to my holiday party, lest I want to have the baddest of santas around. This miserable conman and his partner pose as Santa and Little Helper, respectively, to rob department stores on Christmas Eve. Oh and santa's also a big, boozy perv. Bah humbug to you, too! {Photo Credit: Dimension Films}

Leave it to Anthony Bourdain and Co. to come up with a claymation santa who is comrades with Krampus, an old beast-like creature (complete with whip) who runs around killing bad kids and putting them in baskets to eat with his really creepy, long tongue. Merry Christmas from the f**ked up mind of Anthony Bourdain and old Germanic folklore. {Photo Credit: Zero Point Zero Productions}

Warner Bros.
Man, Santa was sort of a d**k as a kid, huh? Paul Giamatti's Nick Claus gave away his brother Fred's Christmas presents without asking him AND chopped down Fred's favorite tree, causing his best bird friend to flee. Where's your Christmas spirit, man?  Also, why does Giamatti's santa have a mean case of the crazy-eyes? {Photo Credit: Warner Brothers Pictures}

RoboSanta in 'Futurama'
RoboSanta in 'Futurama'
Everyone is naughty in this crazy robo-santa's mind. And when you're on that list? You better watch out, because he'll chop your head off and stuff your neck hole with toys from a SACK OF HORRORS. Literally. Sack of horrors. He also likes to murder naughty folks with a bunch of festive murder devices. {Photo Credit: Comedy Central}
