Silent Night Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: In 1984, the slasher classic Silent Night, Deadly Night stunned audiences, was banned across America, and remains the most notorious Christmas movie in history. Now, Santa is back, and he's got a brand new bag of tricks. As their small Midwestern town prepares for its annual Christmas Eve parade, Sheriff (Malcolm McDowell of Halloween) and his deputy (Jaime King of My Bloody Valentine 3-D and ''Hart Of Dixie'') discover that a maniac in a Santa suit is murdering those he judges as ''naughty.'' Their sins? Porn, adultery, greed... And he will make sure they rest in heavenly pieces. Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D ), Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World ), Lisa Marie (The Lords of Salem), and Brendan Fehr (''CSI: Miami'') co-star in this brutal and darkly humorous tale of Christmas gone bad.

Review: Remember back in the day when Silent Night, Deadly Night was all the rage?  I remember every kid in school was trying to see it!  Anytime they ban a horror flick, people just flock to it.  This one is a loose re-make of Silent Night and I'm mixed about it.  Firstly, I have some loyalty to the original 80s version, but this one is honestly far better in acting quality and all around tone.  The film does a great job of delivering on the murder and is certainly violent enough to appease any horror fan.

Interest Range: Horror
