SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT is a mean-spirited little slasher flick that many of us have grown to love over the years. Initially pulled from theaters due to protests from angry parents, the film found an audience on home video, and built up a healthy cult following!
And though it has been released on DVD (and Blu-ray) by Anchor Bay in the past, this new release from Scream Factory looks to be the last copy of this film that any of us will ever have to buy!
Oh man, I hope this is under my tree this Christmas! That would be KILLER!
Synopsis: Community leaders tried to stop the release. The P.T.A. fought to ban it. Now one of the most controversial slasher films of all time is back in a new high-definition release! This new edition of the horror holiday favorite has been restored from the original vaulted film negative.
SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT is the heartwarming story of little Billy Chapman who was traumatized by his parents' Christmas Eve murder, then brutalized by sadistic orphanage nuns. But when grown-up Billy is to dress as jolly St. Nick, he goes on a yuletide rampage to "punish the naughty!" Santa Claus is coming to town ... and this time he's got an axe! Robert Brian Wilson and Scream Queen Linnea Quigley star in this jaw-dropping horror classic that a nation of angry mothers still cannot stop!
