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

" With the month of Christmas upon us I thought I'd celebrate the most wonderful time of the year like a true horror fan. By watching as many Christmas themed horror flicks as possible. I thought I'd start with this cult classic slasher, which I've eagerly anticipated watching for some time. Sadly, it's not as much fan as I'd hoped. In fact, this is a very dark and disturbing film. There's nothing much enjoyable here. The kills are creative, but most of them are filmed in such a way that they on"

Bml93's Film Diary for 2012 (272 movies items)

""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"

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"This film was planned to be a limited release but open wider by Christmas, but the protest canned the idea, and was pulled after two weeks of release. To protest the film, critics Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel read the credits out loud on their television show saying, "shame, shame, shame" after each name. All the films' TV ads were immediately pulled off the networks because of the trailer showing Santa Claus carrying an ax, which practically depicted him as a mass murderer. This lead parents"
