5.0 out of 5 stars SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN!, 14 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Silent Night (2012) (Amazon 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.
