We’re big fans of independent genre director Steven Miller here at Icons of Fright. This past week, Miller’s homage to 80’s Amblin films, Under The Bed, premiered at Screamfest, where Aaron was able to catch it and essentially loved it (read his review ASAP!). Even I wrote a sterling review earlier this year for his brutally fun-home invasion film The Aggression Scale (read that here), and our own Jerry Smith interviewed the man himself just this month, discussing his filmmaking roots to his upcoming projects (check that here, as well). It’s safe to say we’re all incredibly excited for his loose reboot of 1984’s seasonal slasher Silent Night, Deadly Night, now simply titled SILENT NIGHT. The fiery poster just premiered, which you can see above, and if you’ve ever wanted to see a murderous Santa Claus with a flamethrower, you’ve come to the right place! We’ll soon be able to see it for ourselves when it hits select theaters November 30th, and then on Blu-ray & DVD December 4th! Read the official press release below, and be on the lookout for a trailer in early November!
Ring in the holidays the Anchor Bay way with
In select theaters November 30th; Blu-ray/DVD combo and DVD on sale December 4th
You better watch out! Santa Claus is coming to town, and he knows who’s been bad. On November 30th, Anchor Bay Films presents Silent Night on screen in ten major U.S. metropolitan areas. Blu-ray/DVD combo and DVD will be available to unwrap nationwide on December 4th.
A loose remake of the horror classic Silent Night, Deadly Night, the film’s stellar cast includes Malcolm McDowell (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Easy A), Jaime King (Sin City, My Bloody Valentine 3D), 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).
McDowell and King star as a small-town sheriff and deputy on the hunt for a murderous Santa Claus terrorizing their community on Christmas Eve. But with the streets full of Santas for the annual Christmas parade, the killer is hiding in plain sight. He’s made his list, checked it twice, and the naughty are going to pay with their lives.
Silent Night was directed by Steven C. Miller (Automaton Transfusion, The Aggression Scale) and produced by The Genre Company and Insidious Pictures.
Bonus features include “SILENT NIGHT: Behind The Scenes” featurette and Deleted Scenes.
