Steven C. Miller’s sort of remake but more a sequel to the classic 80’s slasher, Silent Night, Deadly Night, has just released its first gore soaked trailer! As Christmas approaches, what better way to get into the holiday spirit than with a vicious killer on the loose dressed as Santa. As Malcolm McDowell’s Sheriff Cooper tells us, “Christmas is the perfect time for going nuts”. So go nuts and enjoy the trailer below!
Here in the UK we have yet to have confirmation of a release date for this highly anticipated film, but in the US Silent Night will arrive in ten theatres across the US from 30th November. The horror flick will then arrive on DVD & Blu-ray on 4th December.
Directed by Steven C. Miller and written by Jayson Rothwell, Silent Night stars Malcolm McDowell as the Sheriff with a murderous Santa on his hands, and Jamie King (Sin City, Mother’s Day) will play his deputy. Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D), Jamie Kennedy (Scream), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow) and Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs the World) will also be appearing. Rick Skene will be playing the murderous Santa.
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, the 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 directed by Steven C. Miller.
