Fear of Santa Claus Part 6 (Silent Night, 2012)

In this 2012 remake of the original film, Santa has something he was missing in the first film.  A freaking flame thrower. The film opens right away with Santa killing an adulterous couple.  He then shows up at the front door of a greedy… Continue Reading “Fear of Santa Claus Part 6 (Silent Night, 2012)”

Fear of Santa Claus Pt 5 (Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: the Toymaker, 1991)

Oh boy.  I genuinely feel bad for Mickey Rooney having this in his resume.  On the other hand, the fact that he blasted the original film…well, it is kind of poetic.  Rooney is kindly elderly toy-maker Joe Petto.  Obviously, subtlety is not a priority… Continue Reading “Fear of Santa Claus Pt 5 (Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: the Toymaker, 1991)”

Fear of Santa Claus Pt 4 (Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation, 1990)

Fear of Santa Claus Pt 2 (Silent Night, Deadly Night 2, 1987)

In the first film, there is a baby in the car with Billy.  We hear nothing about that baby until the end of the film that this baby is Billy’s little brother Ricky.  Which matters a bit more for this film.  Number 2 deals… Continue Reading “Fear of Santa Claus Pt 2 (Silent Night, Deadly Night 2, 1987)”

Fear of Santa Claus Pt 1 (Silent Night Deadly Night, 1984)

Silent Night, Deadly Night opens with little Billy and his family visiting Grandpa.  Gramps is a bit senile and instills dread in young Ricky of Santa Claus.  He warns Billy that Santa Claus will punish the wicked…on the drive home, his dad stops to help Santa… Continue Reading “Fear of Santa Claus Pt 1 (Silent Night Deadly Night, 1984)”
