SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT
1984, 85 min, USA, Dir: Charles E. Sellier, Jr.
Virtually every moral taboo is shattered in this highly controversial Christmas slasher shocker, which drew the outrage of parents, critics and its distributor upon release. As a boy, Billy witnessed his parents’ murder at the hands of a man dressed as St. Nick; forced to don a Santa suit for his job at a toy store years later, he goes on a psychotic rampage. You don’t want to be on this Santa’s “naughty” list!
SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 3: BETTER WATCH OUT!
1989, Lion’s Gate, 90 min, USA, Dir: Monte Hellman
Cult director Monte Hellman tackles genre filmmaking, horror franchise, and holiday movies in the third installment of the SILENT NIGHT series. Killer Santa Ricky, this time played by horror icon Bill Mosley (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2, THE DEVIL’S REJECTS), awakens from a six year coma thanks to a doctor’s ESP experiments. Feeling the Christmas spirit with psychic connection to clairvoyant blind woman named Laura, Ricky has some gory gifts to deliver to her and her family for the holidays.
SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 5: THE TOYMAKER
1991, Lion’s Gate, 90 min, USA, Dir: Martin Kitrosser
An elderly toy maker, surreally played Mickey Rooney, is creating Christmas presents with sinister surprises. Completely breaking away from the storylines of the previous installments, THE TOYMAKER takes the HALLOWEEN III approach to the franchise, offering something truly dark, subversive, and unique.
