[Video] ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night’ Cast & Crew Reflect On the Controversy

Ironically, the success of Silent Night, Deadly Night was largely thanks to the very parents who aimed to banish it from existence. The film was picketed by angry parents when it was released in November ’84 – the same day as A Nightmare on Elm Street – subsequently pulled from theaters and turned into a must-watch horror movie.

After all, what’s more appealing than a horror movie parents are pissed about?!

The cast and crew of Silent Night, Deadly Night, including star Robert Bryan Wilson, reflect on the controversy in this clip from Scream Factory‘s Blu-ray, releasing tomorrow.

Thanks to Daily Grindhouse for debuting this one.

    Ugh he was so pretty in his youth.

      Looks like he’s wearing a pretty unconvincing toupee in the left pic.

      I give him points for aging gracefully.

    Have to buy this blue ray! Never paid attention to the controversy. Just another holiday slasher in my opinion. Loved it! Liked the first 3, the other sequels were pretty campy.

    Very similar to what Nikki Sixx from the Crue said when the PMRC put warning stickers on albums they deemed inappropriate for children. People thought it would hurt them but in all reality he said it was the best thing that ever happened to them, what kid doesn’t wanna get their hands on a album that is deemed inappropriate with a big fat warning sticker?

    • I LOVED those Parental Advisory stickers–it totally made it way easier to find the albums I wanted to buy when I had money of my own to spend.
