For a remake, its not bad. It has little to do with the 84 original one, silent night, deadly night, but it has a few cute tributes to it. I dont want to give too much of the 'story' away, even though most people could write this shit in their sleep, I'll just say for the creative new ways santa kills the naughty people of this small town, and being original for a remake (yeah, its like a paradox right there) it was worth the $15 i spent on it. I found a new christmas classic. 7 out of 10.
