Silent Night Deadly Night: Killer
(1984, 79mins, Horror)
This was one of the fantastic films I saw at the Exhumed Film Festivals that I went too back in the good days. Like Burial Ground, Silent Night Deadly Night was one of my favorites that I saw there. I might even go as far as saying, Silent Night Deadly Night might be my favorite do to the sheer fun of watching this inside a packed theater at 2am. To see a film that came out way before I even step onto this planet inside a theater is one of the greatest pleasures I have ever had. There is something awesome about seeing a film like this on the big screen.
The film starts out on Christmas Eve 1971, with the family driving to see their grandfather (who was Back to the Future’s Pa Peabody). Mom, Dad, Billy and Ricky come to talk to Grandpop, put he just stares straight when they try. Everyone then leaves except Billy, who Grandpop begins to talk too.
We cut to a man robbing a convenience store. He’s dressed as Santa and shoots the convenience store guy dead. (I’m sure you can see where this is going)
Officer Miller: “Can you believe this? It’s Christmas Eve and we got orders to bring in Santa Claus.”
Silent Night Deadly Night is a fantastic B-Movie!
Ira Sims: [at closing time] “Seven o’clock… it’s over! Time to get shit-faced!”
When you finish this film, you will say to yourself. “Wow that was something, there is no way on earth they could make another that was better or even on par with the first one”.
Well guess what they DID! They made the greatest sequel of all time…
Now For (Drum Roll)…
