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.Read more ›
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!Read more ›
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.Read more ›

Ok, I'll make this short, both movies are trash but in a good way. The first is a classic slasher about a boy who fears Santa...cause his family was killed by a Santa imposter! Read morePublished 1 month ago by Alan C. Logan
