"You see Santa Claus tonight you better run boy, you better run for ya life!"

Due to its premise concerning an axe-wielding serial killer dressed in a Santa Claus outfit, Silent Night, Deadly Night stirred up quite a ruckus when it hit cinema screens back in 1984. Most notably, renowned critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert positively detested it, calling the film both irresponsible t... read more

I have never watched this series so I figured I would go ahead and check it out. It is considered a cult classic though so there's that. This is the only film from the director and writers I have seen so far. The ratings are fairly average so I'm not expecting much from it. I do hope it manages to at least be somewhat entertaining.

This is the only film from the director and writers I have seen so far. The ratings are fairly average so I'm not expecting much from it. I do hope it manages to at least be somewhat entertaining.

The general plot is actually a fairly neat idea. Had this been big budget I believe it would have been an excellent movie. The kills were well done and even kind of disturbing.

Now the characters were all fairly decent. Mother Superior” read more
