Product Description

Remake of the low-budget horror 'Silent Night, Deadly Night' (1984). It's Christmas Eve in a small New England town and Aubrey Bradimore (Jaime King) is on the hunt for a deranged killer who is dressed as Santa Claus. With help from her father (John B. Lowe) and Sheriff Cooper (Malcolm McDowell), the inexperienced officer sets out to catch the mysterious killer. There is only one problem: the Christmas Eve parade is taking place and the streets are filled with Santas.

Review

'Silent Night is guaranteed to leave you groaning, wincing and chortling' --Close Up Film

'Silent Night is tremendous fun... among the most entertaining I've ever seen. ****' --Horror Talk

'It's almost impossible to believe that the great McDowell is so desperate for work that he's reduced to appearing in a film like Silent Night; and equally, that anyone should be reduced to watching it.' --Cine Vue

5.0 out of 5 stars SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN! 14 Aug 2014
By Charlie
Format:Amazon Instant Video
SILENT NIGHT is a 2012 horror film directed by Steven C. Miller & starring Malcolm McDowell, Jaime King, Donal Logue, Ellen Wong, & Brendan Fehr. A Sheriff & his deputies of a remote Midwestern town searches for a man, dress up as a Santa Claus, who is killing those who been very naughty on Christmas Eve. SILENT NIGHT is a loose remake of the controversial 1984 film, SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT. For a holiday-theme slasher, SILENT NIGHT really does stab it's mark...hard. Steve C. Miller had created a film that it's in spirit with the 1980's slasher era. This is made by someone who clearly love the genre. This a dark, sleazy, & delightfully cheesy blood soaked thrill ride. This killer Saint Nick with his red suit, fake white beard, & transparent mask is truly a memorable screen villain. The acting is quite good here, Malcolm McDowell pretty much hams it up, but who's clearly having fun in the role of the sheriff. The film's look is very vibrant in it's colors & contrast is very solid, which makes it very crisp in hi-def. The film's death scenes are simply brutal & does not disappoint. Father Christmas dashing through his victims in some very unique ways, from christmas lights to a flamethrower. As before, SILENT NIGHT is a slasher film from a simpler time. It doesn't bring anything new to the table & nothing ground breaking here. Nevertheless, it knows what it is & gets the job done. It's not a great slasher, but it's a damn good slasher. Overall, SILENT NIGHT is a huge crowd pleaser that should be watched with a group of friends. It's straightforward, to the point, loads of fun, & will delight anyone who craves that hack 'n' slash flick. Truly a Christmas movie that should be watched every year around the holiday season. For first time viewing, it's a rental, but for horror lovers, it's worth adding to your collection, a BUY.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Boring 19 Nov 2013
By FJY
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is based on the 1984 cult slasher film "Silent Night Deadly Night". It is not a straight remake, but it does have some very similar scenes to the original. However, I felt that this film was very boring and dragged like a snail's backside. Jaime King puts in a decent performance, though it is becoming obvious that Malcolm McDowell will now appear in anything for the money and he seemed very irritable and grumpy in this film. However, what this film does offer is graphic and inventive death scenes and there are certainly enough of these, some of which are very bloody. If you want a decent plot or anything more meaningful than a high body count, then I would advise you to stay well clear of this film. If you want to see a decent Christmas-themed slasher film, then I suggest you check out "Silent Night Deadly Night" or the original "Black Christmas", both of which blow this film clear out of the water. Two stars from me, for this dull and very disappointing film.

3.0 out of 5 stars HAVE YOU BEEN A NAUGHTY GIRL, DEPUTY? 14 April 2014
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
There is nothing like a holiday slasher film to put one in the proper mood for Christmas-ween. The film opens with a double homicide without showing us Santa's face. It then builds the character of Deputy Aubrey Bradimore (Jaime King) who works for Sheriff Cooper (Malcolm McDowell) who doesn't want outside help with his homicide problem. While building Aubrey's character we are introduced to suspects such as the creepy priest, the bad Santa, and the talking catatonic Gramps.

The defining feature of a "Silent Night" film is the antler scene. I liked the original one far better. Likewise, the story was better developed in the original. In this remake, the characters are better developed, but lack good dialouge. It is certainly a viewable film and good addition to the collection. Ellen Wong plays a receptionist at the police department. She was Knives Chau, Scott Pilgrim's girlfriend.

4.0 out of 5 stars (Really) Bad Santa 30 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
This film is severely low brow, kind of dumb and we've totally seen everything it has to offer (albeit better). Yet - for some reason - I really enjoyed it.

Think `Scream,' but with a Santa going around bumping off the townsfolk in various grisly ways then you're half way there. No, it's not as good as Scream (or even any of its sequels), but, if you're looking for a violent slasher flick to pass the time (and not require too many brain cells for) then this one fits the bill.

You don't really need to know much about the plot = Santa-killer. You can probably fill in the rest yourself. Maybe it also helps to watch it around Christmas time. Seeing Santa roast perfect strangers with a flamethrower makes a pleasant change from those awful, sickly-sweet John Lewis commercials currently infesting the screen.

Some people have complained about the killing of a child in the film, so, if you're squeamish and find that sort of thing unwatchable, you might want to steer clear.

Otherwise, sit back and watch Malcolm McDowell deliciously overact (don't complain - he's doing it on purpose - this is kind of tongue-in-cheek, after all!) and deck the halls with burned-up bodies!

It's probably really only worth a 3.5 out of 5, but, as it's Christmas, I'm feeling charitable - so, `Silent Night' gets a (charitable) 4/5.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so scary
If like me you enjoy a bit more of a CHILL at Christmas, this film is not for you. It has gore galore and a story line which concludes but scary it is not. Read more

Sad to see what Malcolm McDowell is reduced to. And his embarrassing American accent must sound to the Yanks like Dick Van Dyke did to us in Mary Poppins!
