Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984) Review:

Silent Night, Deadly Night is often to be found in the list of the best horror film to watch around Christmas. It belongs there, but do not expect anything special or holy about that film for it is a relatively classic 80’s style slasher.

The killer himself, with his Santa Claus’ costume and his blood-dripping ax, is pretty cool. His background is unusually well-described for a film of this type, making the story psychologically interesting.

The kills may be the best thing about that film; they are gory and super violent, with a special mention for the buck head impalement. Other than that, it is definitely no more than your average teen horror movie with lots of boobs, stupid romance, and stupid teen characters. Unfortunately, the film is quite slow and surprises to be really great. A great watch around Christmas, but an average slasher the rest of the year.
