The Predator tackles Santa and his reindeer in Holiday Special short

If you take your holidays with a sprinkling of blood and guts, well, THE PREDATOR's stop-motion animated Holiday Special might just be your cup of cocoa. To celebrate the recent home-media release of the Shane Black film, 20th Century Fox have released a fun short animated by the folks at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (the folks behind Robot Chicken) which finds the Predator tangling with his most formidable foe yet - Santa and his reindeer.

THE PREDATOR short takes plenty of inspiration from the classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas special, and executive producer Matt Senreich told Entertainment Weekly that a lot of their animators cite that project as what inspired them to get into stop-motion. "We grew up with a lot of this stuff that we have a nostalgia for a lot of these properties. As far as the animation style, a lot of our animators go back to Rudolph as what inspired them to get into the business," said Senreich. "And as far as taking a property like Predator and just turning it 90 degrees on its side is what we really like to do, it’s our sense of storytelling."

THE PREDATOR is now available on DVD/Blu-ray/4K Ultra HD/Digital, so be sure to bring the mayhem home for the holidays!
