Silent Night Deadly Night

A rare big-screen outing for one of the most controversial slasher films of the ’80s, Silent Night, Deadly Night can best be surmised thusly: a deranged teenager in a Santa suit goes on a killing spree, due to issues relating to (a) clerical abuse and (b) his parents’ demise at the hands of a criminal dressed as old St. Nick – and, like the tagline says, ‘He’s Dreaming of a Red Christmas…’ SNDN created a serious fuss upon its U.S. release in 1984; TV critics Siskel And Ebert went so far as to read the film’s production credits on air, saying ‘shame, shame’ after each name. Now that’s what we call publicity you can’t buy. And guess what? A big-budget remake is in the works. Interesting Fact: a later movie in the series, Silent Night, Deadly Night 3 was directed by legendary auteur Monte Hellman.
