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.

Customer Reviews

It is definitely one of the best "worst" movies of all time.
J. Autrey
The movie is terrible but you will be rolling laughing at the stories the filmmakers tell about how they came about to make it and why it is so bad.

The problem is that the film is only slightly disjointed and the viewer may have a hard time believing Billy's motive as the killer.

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!

After hearing about how this film was banned, I, like anyone else HAD to see it! There is kind of an eerie silence throughout the movie which gives it a unique kind of feel. I think the Santa Claus could have been much scarier if he had some twisted/ugly face but instead it's a good looking 18-year-old saying things like "Naughty" and "Punish". The gore in the movie is quite good and scary, mostly using an axe to do his dirty work and also uses a bow and arrow and hammer to kill among other tools. I have yet to see Part 2 and the other sequels but am looking forward to seeing them! You can't beat the storyline of a killer Santa Claus, it distinguishes this movie from the rest!

These movies are a cornerstone in slasher films. It for the most part started the killer santa claus films. These movies are very entertaining and keep your eyes wide open. This movie caused quite a bit of controversy in 1984 when it first came out,and when the sequel came out in 1987. For those who love slasher films GET THIS!

Format: DVD
this movie was ill recieved upon initial theatrical release, due to 'exploitation' of xmas and dear old st. nick. while i disagree with the general disaproval, this yuletide tale certainly does warp santa, and what xmas REALLY means to poor little billy. if you've seen this, you know what i'm talking about here- seeing your parents murdered by 'santa', does not a happy holiday make. throw in a stern and overbearing mother superior to torment at every turn, and i'd be ready to sharpen the old ax myself. this one is full of the red stuff- stabbings, beheadings; even an antler impaling, courtesy of scream queen linnea quigley. jolly good fun.
