Silent Night, Deadly Night, a review by Jimmy


This one was a little bit later on my list, but since Christmas is tomorrow...

Silent Night, Deadly Night



Years : 1984

Director : Charles E. Sellier Jr.

Stars :

Lilyan Chauvin
Gilmer McCormick
Toni Nero
Robert Brian Wilson

Synopsis :

At Christmas night the parents of little Billy are kill by Santa Claus. He grew up in an orphanage where the mother superior teach him that the naughty people must be punish. Years later he find a job in a toy store and had a normal life untill he have to replace the store Santa Claus. All his past come at him and he'll became Santa Claus...a Santa who punish the naughty!!!

Viewing experience :

This is a great 80's slasher movie that I watch every year when Christmas arrive. Contrary to the others slasher films of this period, the action of the killer don't happen for no reason : All the people killed have a logic reason to be (for this kind of movie). Robert Brian Wilson have only this film to his credit (some tv figuration only) and it's surprising, since he did a goob job. Linnea Quigley  is in the cast and that's always a good thing.

A very good way to pass a pleasant time in front of the TV, this movie is on the top class of the 80's slasher. The second part is good too, but more funny that anything else.

Rating : 3,5/5

Movie Trailer : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qK-85acDd5s

I have the old Anchor Bay release with the part 1 and 2 who is now out of print. But, a new edition with the first part only was release the 11 december by Anchor Bay again.

P.S : Pete you don't seem to have it on your collection give it a try. I think that you will like it.

Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

Stars:
Boris Karloff
Ellen Drew
Marc Cramer
Katherine Emery
Helene Thimig

Plot:

My Thoughts:
Another Val Lewton movie that I enjoyed. Not as much as a few others in the set. But I did like it. I liked Karloff in this movie.  I also liked the superstitious old lady. Her thinking one of the guests is a vampire (or similar to one) was pretty interesting. Of course there is also the whole plague thing. I really can't put my finger on it... but for the most part of the movie the atmosphere is just off. It just didn't seem to be there at least not as good as the previous movies I watched in this set. But I can say this movie has a pretty strong ending.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
