You Better Watch Out! Killer Santa in New 'Silent Night' Poster, Stills and Theatrical Release Info


He knows who’s been naughty …

Silent Night, Anchor Bay’s re-imagining of the 1984 Santa slasher Silent Night, Deadly Night, has a new poster, chilling stills and is coming to 10 lucky theaters on November 30. Fans can also purchase the blu-ray™/DVD combo and DVD beginning December 4th.

The loose remake of the Christmas horror classic Silent Night, Deadly Night stars Malcolm McDowell and Jaime King as a small-town sheriff and deputy on the hunt for a murderous Santa Claus terrorizing their community on Christmas Eve. But wouldn’t you know it, there’s a Christmas parade and the killer Santa is one among hundreds in the Santa pack. One thing that might tip off the police: this Santa has a flame thrower.

The film also features Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D, Blade), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination, X-Men First Class), and Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World).

Check out the poster and stills of a seriously Sinister Santa below. You do not want to get on his bad side.

The original Silent Night, Deadly Night is one of those movies that came out at the perfect time to make a gigantic impression on me. As a kid, I had multiple nightmares of an ax-wielding Santa coming down my chimney.  On December 4th, Anchor Bay will release Silent Night along with the original 1984 film, Silent Night, Deadly Night and the 1987 sequel Silent Night, Deadly Night 2. That’s three times the evil Santa. The '80s double feature will be will cost $14.98 for the collection and fans can pre-book on November 7th.
