Silent Night, Deadly Night/Silent Night [Blu-ray]

  • SKU: 7192196
  • Release Date: 05/12/2015
Offended parents and others protested the 1984 slasher flick Silent Night, Deadly Night when it was released because it portrays Billy (Robert Brian Wilson) as a toy-store Santa Claus who goes on a rampage and axes people to death while still in his Santa garb. Four sequels prove the adage that there is no such thing as bad publicity. When Billy was just a boy he saw someone dressed as Santa murder his parents at Christmastime. Billy's stint in an orphanage did nothing to unwarp his mind (he is tied to his bed for "misbehavior"), and when he starts playing Santa in the store -- much against his wishes since he is deathly afraid of both Christmas and Santa Claus, he first only frightens the children who come to see him. Then his mind snaps, and he repeats the scene he saw as a child, on one person after another, in full gory color. The original 1984 version and the 2012 reimagining of the cult classic starring Jaime King and Malcolm McDowell from Anchor Bay Films are collected in this special dual pack.

    As a long-time fan of slasher movies & a child of the 80s, I didn't SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT until the early 2000s. And I couldn't believe I'd never watched it before. It has a perfectly nasty set-up story which makes for a legitimate case of psychosis. Then the accidental perfect storm that sets our "hero" loose on a crusade of punishing naughty children while wearing a Santa costume. And screaming "punish" a lot. Charles Sellier, Jr.'s 1984 flick was brought under heavy fire when it came out as obscene & making a holy holiday into a twisted bloodbath. That only helped the popularity & notoriety of the movie. Now enjoy this gem in HD with great extras. Oh, and the second feature, SILENT NIGHT, has absolutely nothing to do with the main feature, except Christmas & horror.

    I bought this based solely on the reputation of Silent Night, Deadly Night. I consider myself a horror movie junkie but for some reason this one had always eluded me. Well, it's....okay. It's a curiosity because of the controversy it caused when it first came out, but in reality it's a pretty mediocre horror movie. Same goes for Silent Night: a perfectly okay horror movie, but nothing special. Each movie has a couple of extras, nothing mind-blowing, but for the price this is a decent purchase.

    You cannot beat the price on this 2 disc double feature set! You get the original Silent Night, Deadly Night, as well as the (surprisingly good) remake. If you're into killer Santa Claus movies, than you should pick this set up for sure!
