THE ADVENT CALENDAR OF CHRISTMAS FILMS 14: Silent Night, Deadly Night

Blog 7Post a comment • 408 views

Well there has to be a Santa serial killer movie doesn’t there? After all the threat of Santa knowing who is naughty or nice only really pays off on the nice side. Perhaps if you are really naughty, Santa might slit your throat instead.

I have never seen Silent Night, Deadly Night (though I am aware that there is a Carradine in it). All I know of it I got from the Bad Movies website and extrapolated from its title. A mid seventies slasher shocker with low production values and a plot which makes all of good Dr Freud’s work seem worthwhile. Perhaps the most amusing thing is the plot, all of which tries to explain why there would be a murderous Santa on the loose. Apparently because his parents were killed by a murderous Santa all seems a touch recursive to me.
