A sadist Santa has come to punish the naughty of Cryer, and this Christmas Eve will be anything but a Silent Night…

Now filming in Winnipeg is what’s being called a “loose remake” of Charles E. Sellier Jr.’s 1984 classic Silent Night, Deadly Night.

Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D), Jamie Kennedy (Scream), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow) and Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs the World) have all been cast opposite Jaime King (My Bloody Valentine, Mother’s Day) and Malcolm McDowell all star in Anchor Bay’s Silent Night, which is being directed by Under the Bed and Automaton Transfusion helmer Steven C. Miller.

Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that 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. A vicious serial killer, dressed as Santa Claus, has made his own “naughty list” and anyone on it is in big trouble. 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.

Malcolm McDowell will play Sheriff Cooper, a small-town hero ready for some big-time action.

    Sounds quite different from the original, which is good. I just hope there’ll be some cool homages to it. How about a cameo by Linnea Quigley? That’d make my day.

    SSounds interesting and they have a strong cast. @brotheroftears I agree and would love to see a Linnea Quigley cameo. Got have an antler kill as well.

    I hate everything about this film. “Loose remake”(bullshit term), has literally NOTHING to do with the original except for using half it’s name AND Jamie Kennedy. Disgusting. There is no reason why this is a remake whatsoever. What’s the advantage?

    i’m all for this movie! the cast is cool (Jaime King is a favorite of mine!) and i like winter settings horror movies as well as some Xmas horror movies (i love the original BLACK CHRISTMAS and am guilty of loving as a guilty pleasure the trashy but fun BLACK XMAS remake! LOL).
