I guess if you needed a cast for a slasher flick, getting Malcolm McDowell to front it isn’t a bad way to go. Genre fave The McDowellster faces off against a killer Santa in director Steven C. Miller’s remake of “Silent Night, Deadly Night”, now simply titled “Silent Night”. Personally, I would have gone for “Deadly Night” if you’re going to shorten the title, but that’s just me. Anyways, get a load of what Santa has in store for all the bad kiddies out there in “Silent Night’s” first trailer. You definitely don’t wanna be naughty around this dude.
In 1984, the slasher classic Silent Night, Deadly Night stunned audiences, was banned across America, and remains the most notorious Christmas movie in history. Now, Santa is back, and he’s got a brand new bag of tricks. As their small midwestern town prepares for its annual Christmas Eve parade, Sheriff (Malcolm McDowell) and his deputy (Jaime King) discover that a maniac in a Santa suit is murdering those he judges as “naughty.” Their sins? Porn, adultery, greed… And he will make sure they rest in heavenly pieces. Donal Logue, Ellen Wong, Lisa Marie, and Brendan Fehr co-star in this brutal and darkly humorous tale of Christmas gone bad.
“Silent Night” also stars Jamie King, Donal Logue, Ellen Wong, Lisa Marie, and Brendan Fehr.
