Goodbye Halloween, here comes Christmas personified in a grotesque manner as a sucker who goes freakin’ mental in ‘loose’ remake of one of the most iconic Christmas horror movies, Silent Night, Deadly Night.
Silent Night, an update of the controversial 1984 horror thriller gets the trailer which you can watch below.
Directed by Steven C. Miller the horror thriller stars Malcolm McDowell, Jamie King, Donal Logue, Ellen Wong, Lisa Marie, and Brendan Fehr.
The movie centers on a town in the grip of a killing spree initiated by a person in a Santa suit making judgments about who is naughty and who is nice.
When asked who is the lead, McDowell or King, Miller answered:
It’s a split between Malcolm and Jaime. We’re really through the eyes of Jaime but Malcolm sort of comes in and takes over a bit. It’s so f**kin’ cool because it’s so hard not to have Malcolm on screen and feel like he’s taking the movie. But it really a split piece and we’re trying to figure out what’s happening on Christmas through the eyes of a new cop who has this pressure on her to be a great cop. It’s all about catching Santa…
The film is due out in limited theaters on November 30th, 2012.
The slashing begins on a snowy Christmas Eve in Cryer, WI. The normally quiet town is bustling with activity as the the residents are getting ready for the big day. The events take place around the towns annual Santa Parade, which has brought a record number of Santas to town. Deputy Sheriff Aubrey Bradimore (King) is stuck reluctantly working the night shift, dealing with all of the drunken Santas, road closures, and stressed out locals — but things are about to take a deadly turn.

As the body count rises, Aubrey races to discover the killer’s true identity – but in a town full of Santas, shady characters and dark secrets, finding the real murderer will take more then a Christmas miracle.
