While Bloody Disgusting shared the first ever look at an actual shooting scene from Steven C. Miller’s now-filming Silent Night, their “loose remake” of Charles E. Sellier Jr.’s 1984 classic Silent Night, Deadly Night now filming in Winnipeg for release via Anchor Bay, we’ve just now landed the first pair of official hi-res imagery!

The first pictorial depicts star Jaime King at a parade surrounded by locals dressed as Santa Claus, while the other has Malcolm McDowell, as Sheriff Cooper, with a gun in someone’s face.

King (My Bloody Valentine, Mother’s Day), McDowell (Halloween), Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D), Jamie Kennedy (Scream), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow), Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs the World), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination) and Cortney Palm (Sushi Girl) also star in the film where a sadist Santa (played by Rick Skene) has come to punish the naughty of Cryer, and this Christmas Eve will be anything but a Silent Night…

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

    I think this loose remake may turnout to be pretty good. It’s got a good cast and the small snippetts we have seen look good. Here’s holding out hope the redo the antler kill scene.

    The more I hear about this the more interested I get.

    I thought the original was alright(though I can honestly say I wasn’t a diehard fan). This one, though, sounds like it could be interesting. Gotta love holiday horror! The atmosphere(those two pics got it!).

    I’m actually excited for this one. It’s also nice to see another Christmas horror film. For some reason I usually love them.

    McDowell looks a lot like Brad Dourif from RZ’s Halloweens.
