Synopsis


Silent Night
Silent Night, Deadly Night gets the remake treatment with this Anchor Bay release starring Jaime King as a young deputy who's on the hunt for a killer dressed as Santa Claus. With the help of her quirky sheriff (Malcolm McDowell) and her father (John B. Lowe), a retired cop-turned-Santa portrayer, the fresh-faced officer stalks the streets of her small Midwestern town as its citizens prepare for the annual Christmas Eve parade -- unaware that a maniac is on the hunt for naughty festivalgoers. Steven C. Miller directs from a script by Jayson Rothwell. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    Decent Remake of a Cult Classic

    This is a remake of the controversial horror movie Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984). It pays some well-deserved nods to the original and the first sequel, but takes its own route with the main plot. Overall, it was just a fun and entertaining horror movie for the Christmas season that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the final seconds. The only issue I have with this movie is that you can tell it was not filmed during the winter months, but it’s not a major flaw or anything. As for the actual product, it only has a behind-the-scenes feature and deleted scenes. It would have been nice to include an audio commentary and possibly few other things, but it’s a great add to any horror collection regardless.

    Solid Blu-ray release of a decent holiday slasher

    Silent Night is a fun and bloody little holiday diversion. Certainly, it fares better than most of the films in the Silent Night, Deadly Night franchise. And let's face it, Malcolm McDowell is always a hoot. That said, some of the characters are just flat-our ridiculous...particularly the main protagonist who literally changes her mind every single time someone actually agrees with one of her theories, like she has some form of virulent Investigative ADHD. Still, it's good (if thoroughly illogical) fun, and the Blu-ray sports solid audio and video quality. The extras are lacking, but this is really the kind of disposable good-time film that doesn't require much elaboration. You're not really gonna feel a need to delve into the production of this movie...it's just a decent time-waster.

    In this remake the killer Santa Claus is back and deadlier than ever. This actually a pretty decent remake and the cast is amazing. The kiss are unique except for one which is homage to the original. The gore is great not as much cgi. The plot is great and every person that is killed actually deserve it for doing bad sins. Stars Jaime King, Malcom McDonald, Ellen Wong & Lisa Marie

    It was dumb but it was also amusing. If you're looking for a popcorn horror flick, this isn't a bad one to pick up

    My family was worried this movie wouldn't hold a candle to the original film. It completely stood on it's own.

    Different from it's original counterpart. This re-imagining of the cult-classic does not disappoint.
