The way I look at it,if you don't like what the movie is about,don't go see it,just like if you don't like a tv show,change the channel.
Jeffrey Lynn McCurdy
This movie is a MUST see for slasher fans and for me at least the best christmas themed horror ive seen so far(sorry to the fans of black christmas).
Billy shows up at the orphange later on, and axes one of the police men in the chest, then heads for Mother Superior, ready to 'punish' her too.

The Film :Silent Night Deadly Night
Year Made: 1984

Overview: A young boy witnesses the murder of his mom and dad. The child escapes and is raised in a orphanage where he is not well cared for. As a adult, the memories still haunt him from years ago. Once asked to put on a Santa Clause suit to entertain customers at his job, he can no longer keep the torment within. Unfortunately, those who are naughty will be seeing more red then just dreams of jolly old Saint Nicholas!

The package: 4 Stars. This review is for the 2007 release from Anchor Bay on DVD. The DVD case is really exciting to look at. All kinds of neat sayings and of course the famous photo adorns the cover of Santa holding his axe, on his way down the chimney of a house where someone has been very naughty that year! The DVD stays put in the holder very well and is easy to pop out. The inlay is very cool to look at, along with some very nice graphics on the disc itself. The extras included are very nice and I really enjoyed the interview with the director Mr Charles E. Seller JR. He gave some great insight into his thoughts about the film and anyone who opposes this film should give the interview a listen as to see that this man IS a class act who just wanted to make a great horror film and not cause people to be so upset. Their is a great photo gallery that is neat to look at also. Only bad thing and the only reason I did not give this package 5 stars is because it says that there is a trailer for the film on the box and there is none! I would have loved to have seen the trailer and if it's not going to be included then I just wish it had not been stated that it was on the box.

Spook Meter: 5 Stars. This film is scary and very intense to watch.

NOTE: The four stars are merely for the film and it's earlier DVD presentation.

I've been waiting for December 11th, 2007. Why? Because I'm a huge fan of the "Silent Night, Deadly Night" film series. Most folks either love the films or loathe them. For me, they're all guilty pleasures. Never 100% genre classics in the conventional sense (the first is the closest, while the 3rd has the benefit of a most-skilled director, Monte Hellman), but fun nonetheless.

Of course, this isn't the first time "Silent Night" has appeared on DVD. Anchor Bay previously released a double feature DVD in 2003, containing the original film in it's uncut, restored form along with the notoriously bad "Silent Night, Deadly Night, Part 2". While I was thrilled to have these films on DVD, it always irritated me that neither a theatrical trailer nor TV spot was included for the first film (there was a trailer included for "Part 2"). How could this be? Anyone who knows the history of SNDN also knows that the film itself wasn't the cause for the tremendous uproar from parental groups, everywhere. Rather, it was the actual publicity materials (movie posters and televised commercial spots, especially) that sparked the true controversy. There had already been Christmas-themed horror films, some even involved Santa-suited psychopathic slasher fiends, but none of which received the degree of SNDN's multimedia marketing saturation. These were the ads that freaked out the mass public and ultimately won SNDN it's forbidden reputation. Overwhelmed by the astounding negative attention (including a slew of horrible reviews), the film's distributor, Tri-Star Pictures, withdrew it from circulation and eventually disowned the film entirely.

A small boy named Billy with his family have been traveling to see his grandpa at a mental institute in Utah, but grandpa tells Billy that Santa punishes naughty children and only gives presents to those that have been good leaving him frightened. During that night on their way home, they encounter a deranged lunatic in a Santa Claus outfit who murders his parents leaving him and his little brother to be orphaned. 4 years later they are at a orphanage runned by nuns especially the mean-spirited Mother Superior who punishes poor traumatized Billy who is scared of Santa Claus no thanks to that dark tragedy as it still haunts his mind. 10 years later, he's 18 years old and has a perfect job working at a toy store in town for the past months. Until Christmas which is his most loathed holiday, he gets a job playing the toy store's Santa Claus and later on Christmas Eve he snaps as he goes on a insane killing spree to punish those that have been naughty.

A shocking, gory and violent low budget horror slasher movie that became one of the most infamous and disturbing films of it's genre back in the early 80's, this movie was controversial in November of 1984 because of the subject matter and the fact that parents didn't like the idea of a homicidal Santa Claus. Tri-Star Pictures later pulled the film from out of theaters within the next few weeks but was released on video in a uncut format with footage to avoid an "X" rating. The film went on to become a cult favorite among horror fans especially for Linnea Quigley's appearence as a murder victim that gets skewered by Elk-horns and is one of the better "Halloween" imitators of it's time though not as excellent as "Black Christmas (1974)" it's still a solid holiday slasher flick that spawned a few sequels and a upcoming remake.
