Unmistakably banal and pointless

"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

""You've made it through Halloween, now try and survive Christmas." "If "A Nightmare on Elm Street" gave you sleepless nights, or if "Halloween" made you jump in every shadow or if every "Friday the 13th" was more frightening that the others... THEN BEWARE!""

Leffatykin arvostelut (108 movies items)

"(26.06.2008) "Jos selvisit halloweenistä, viimeistään joulu on kuolemaksi." Vai että silleen. Silent Night, Deadly Night esittelee meille tällä kertaa Billy Chapmanin, jonka lapsuus oli lievästi sanottuna melkoisen ahdistava. Aluksi Billyn mielisairaalassa viruva isoisä pelotteli poikaa tuhmia lapsia rankaisevalla joulupukilla, ja vielä saman illan aikana punanuttuun ja irtopartaan naamioitunut rosvo tappaa pojan vanhemmat tämän silmien alla. Lapsi joutuu katolilaiseen orpokotiin, ei"

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"This was obviously not new territory for the slasher genre, mind you, but Silent Night, Deadly Night brought the idea to new levels of cold sleaziness. - Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine Not only is the movie vile and callous, but also it's pretty darn stupid. - John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews A brutal reminder that Christmas can have negative connotations for some. - Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid The perfect stocking stuffer for misanthropic Scrooges. - Keith Breese, Filmcr"

Santa Claus in Movies: The Naughty & Nice (15 movies items)

" Robert Brian Wilson, "Silent Night, Deadly Night." What says Christmas like a movie about a kid who sees his parents killed by a guy in a Santa suit, and then starts raping and killing people while dressed as Santa? Oh, yeah, deck the halls with filmic folly. Aside from the movie not being any good, one wonders what Santa Claus ever did to the filmmakers to deserve this."

""You see Santa Claus tonight you better run boy, you better run for ya life!" @ DVD Pretty darn stupid and not enjoyable in any way, oddly enough. The main problem about this film is that it takes itself far to seriously. Judging by the premise of this film, this should be a fun slasher film. It's not. Because it takes itself to seriously by trying to get under the skin of the killer. The first half of this film is a tremendous bore, devoted to exposition, explaining every detail about the kil"
