Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Community leaders tried to suppress them. The P.T.A. fought to ban them. Now one of the most controversial slasher films of all time--and it's sicko sequel--are back like never before, presented uncut, uncensored, and together for the first time ever.

"Silent Night, Deadly Night" is the heartwarming story of little Billy Chapman who was traumatized by his parents' Christmas Eve rape and murder, then brutalized by sadistic orphanage nuns. But when a grown-up Billy is forced to dress as jolly St. Nick, he goes on a yuletide rampage to 'punish the naughty.' Santa Claus is coming to town...and this time he's got an axe! Robert Brian Wilson and Linnea Quigley star in this jaw-dropping horror hit that a nation of angry mothers cannot stop!

Billy's younger brother Ricky (Eric Freeman) follows in the family tradition of Christmas carnage. Psycho Santa is back...to deck the halls with chunks of bodies! Both these gorehound holiday favorites have been restored from original vault materials, chock full of gratuitous nudity and grisly violence, then stuffed with jolly new extras for the absolute ultimate in Season's Bleedings.

Ah yes, it's the film that brought the public masses into a furor not seen since The Last Temptation of Christ! It seems that the image of Santa with an axe, lobbing off heads and impaling topless B-movie queens onto antlers doesn't bring out tidings of comfort and joy. But as we all know, 99% of the protesters never saw the movie, so was the hulabaloo worth it?

SNDN starts off with a bang, as a poor little boy has one helluva Xmas eve. After being mentally traumatized by his senile grandfather who informs him that Santa punishes naughty kids, he then sees his father killed and mother raped by a deranged lunatic dressed up as Saint Nick.

Cut to several years later, and our hero is now a mentally unstable teenager, working in a store where he is forced to assume the role of, surprise surprise, Santa Claus. With his fragile sanity on the wain, he breaks down and assumes the role of the evil Santa that massacred his parents, extracting a bloody demise on all the "naughty" people.

It's tasteless, but SNDN is successful on several levels. The film contains a good amount of violence with some original killings (big thumbs up for Linnea Quigley!). Accidental humor also matches the tacky feel of the film (giving a bloody boxcutter to a "good" girl, Grandpa's hilarious speech about Santa). The concept of an evil Santa and/or murder on the Xmas holidays has been done before and done better (check out Black Christmas, THE quintessential holiday horror movie). It's a guilty pleasure movie, certainly not the coming of the anti-Christ that the protestors painted it to be. 4 Stars.

SNDN2- you could use this movie as a coaster for your drink.

Whoever said horror was supposed to be "controversial" wasn't kidding! Yes, I love the holidays, but "no," I wasn't offended by SNDN. In my opinion, a rarity in the horror genre! "Old school" horror without question! Watching it to "let off (some) steam?" Why not!

Ah, SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT, that little slasher movie that pissed off a lot of critics and PTA groups in half the nation (it was pulled before it reached the West Coast) since the killer was dressed as Santa. Incidentally, it's easy to see why it was so controviersial, <PUNISH!> since the story is told from the point-of-view of the killer and it focuses on the factors that cause his murderous rampage. <NAUGHTY!> Gee, didn't producer Ira Richard Barmak or TriStar Pictures learn anything from the brouhaha that surrounded MANIAC (an excellent movie)? Didn't they realize that <PUNISH!> any horror movie where the murderer is the main character and not just a plot device, especially when the movie involves a sacred holiday (it worked for the excellent BLACK CHRISTMAS), <NAUGHTY!> will incur the wrath of sensitive moviegoers? (Hello, parents, it WAS rated R anyway; kids wouldn't be able to see it anyway, although those TV spots must have been scary to unwary kids.) I guess they didn't, and God bless 'em for that! Anyway, this is the good stuff here; we get an uncut presentation (with deleted scenes from another source; as with DEEP RED-THE DIRECTOR'S CUT, once you get used to the switches in quality (DEEP RED's restored scenes were in Italian only), it's a great ride), plus a telephone interview with director Charles E. Sellier, Jr., who expresses interesting and thoughtful opinions of the film and the controversy surrounding it.
But I myself prefer the hilarious sequel <PUNISH!>, which seems to piss off all the horror purists out there, especially fans of the original. Hello! This is SUPPOSED to be a comedy (along the lines of EVIL DEAD 2, which came out in the same year), meaning NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY! <NAUGHTY!

Anyone who knows me or has read my articles for the last couple of years knows my love of Santa Claus slasher films. Every year a couple of my buddies and I get together and watch these exquisite gems. I can almost guarantee you I've seen the movie if it has anything to do with a crazy guy dressed up in Jolly Ole Saint Nick's duds while taking an axe to both the naughty and nice. "Christmas Evil?" Seen it. "Santa's Slay?" Seen it. "Sint?" Seen it. That episode of "Tales from the Crypt" starring Dr. Giggles dressed up as Kris Kringle? Seen it.

Two movies I'd only seen in an edited form called were recently released by Anchor Bay in the form of "Silent Night, Deadly Night Christmas Survival Double Feature." "Silent Night, Deadly Night" and "Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2" both had condensed versions in the Christmas event "Horror Remix: You Better Watch Out" which is played annually at Studio Movie Grill's nationwide. After viewing two 90-minute films cut down into one 30-minute section made me curious to see what was left on the cutting room floor by "Horror Remix" editors.

First off, an introduction to the "Silent Night, Deadly Night" series must be given to those uneducated. The first film centers on little Billy, who sees his parents brutally murdered by a man in a Santa Claus costume one fateful Christmas Eve. After spending time in an abusive Catholic Boy's Home, he is given a job at a toy store.

Everything goes fine until images of Saint Nick start popping up in the store. He suddenly begins having mental breakdowns at work. Things only get worse when he's asked by his boss to don a Santa suit and greet children. The sight of himself in the outfit drives him over the edge. Billy decides it's time to start punishing all the naughty folks he comes across.
