4.0 out of 5 stars Good, But Doesn't Quite Top The Original, December 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Silent Night (DVD)
Silent Night is a loose remake of the 1984 cult classic slasher film Silent Night, Deadly Night. It is good, and at times very good, but it does not top the original. The original had that 80's charm that this one lacks. It also had a better storyline as we got to follow the killer and see how he became a killer. In this one, we don't even know who the killer is until the end. I did like the mystery aspect, though. And Malcolm McDowell is a hoot as the deputy. I actually liked him in Rob Zombie's Halloween, even though many didn't. Here, McDowell is even better though. He acts like he's in a comedy instead of a horror film, hamming it up every chance he gets. There is some nudity, though not as much as in the 1984 original. In that movie, there were three women who got naked. In this one, there is only one. I do think that this version is a lot gorier, though. There are decapitations, stabbings, intestines, etc. If you are a slasher movie fan, I'd say to definitely check this one out. It's probably the second best slasher movie of 2012, topped only by the very fun Girls Gone Dead.
