Needless to say, most fans weren’t exactly happy with Shane Black’s The Predator and the dismal returns at the box-office may have permanently shelved the franchise. Fortunately though, there is a Predator holiday short that should brighten up the mood somewhat.
The stop-motion animation features the Predator as he sets about hunting Santa and his reindeers. Released just before Christmas and in time to promote The Predator DVD, the short seems like an episode straight out of Robot Chicken.
Although humorous, the Comedy Central short takes the franchise’s best elements and even inserts a cool Easter Egg (literally) at the end. Frankly, they should make more of these in the years to come.
