Santa Claus Terrorizes Theaters In ‘Silent Night’ On November 30

Silent Night

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. Bonus features include “SILENT NIGHT: Behind The Scenes” featurette and Deleted Scenes.

Inside we’ve shared the theatrical poster, first batch of images, as well as Blu-ray and DVD art.

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, Under the Bed, The Aggression Scale).

    10 screens??? That’s it? Huh, this is strange, I expected the Silent Night remake to receive a wider release.

    Anyway, I the original is one my favorites, and I can’t wait to rent the remake from RedBox!

    Come on seems like this will be a great movie to see on the big screen right around the holidays. Give this movie a wider release.

  • djblack1313

    yeah, WTF?! 10 screens? why even bother. i’m excited for this though.

  • anthonyd1

    I really don’t understand why Anchor Bay Films doesn’t give any of there movies a substantial release. I doubt I will be able to see Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem on the big screen either because Anchor Bay is handling the release for that too.

    Im quite sure Anchor Bay doesn’t have the capital to release any film in 2000 theatres without the backing of a major studio. And Silent Night might be fun, but looks incredibly schlocky. It would BOMB as a wide theatrical release and there would be no uproar over its premise like there was when the original was released. Its be done, few people care.

    Okay, I might sound like a nostalgic broken record, but even back in the day, the more low budget indie horror were given a better theater release than THIS. If anything, it deserves a decent release, they shouldn’t just give that right to big name movies. It really doesn’t seem like we are progressing that much as a film society if this is the state we are in. Seriously, it seems like one step forward, eight steps back. Am I the only one waiting for a wide scale media revolution to come? Y’know, an definitive cut to the bullshit where the tyrants of the movie industry, television industry, music industry and video game industry fall(as well as the stick-up-their-ass censors)and we are given more freedom of expression and larger range presented to us without feeling creative taste is being stifled or other “visions” are being kept from us to experience. Impaled heads on light posts and skinning corporate suits and stringing them up on bridges. Okay, maybe not that chaotic… LOL!

      EvilHead, AMEN to everything you just said! i couldn’t agree more. and BD, can we see a trailer for this movie?

    • TwistedCritic

      Yeah but back in the day we didn’t have nearly as many movies flooding the marketplace. Nowadays you have at least 2-4 movies opening wide every single weekend.

  • Blood-Sicles

    Please, Austin TX! Would love to see this on the big screen.

      YES! Please bring it to Austin!

    Any word on a BR/DVD UK release?

  • STRIK9

    This looks cool.If any movie was worthy of a remake,this would be it.The original was weak as hell.

  • Jhanse3 (Jhanse29)

    I hope this will be good. I think back to like the Mother’s Day remake. It was a great remake and I think it would have been a fairly modest hit if it was given a theatrical run. Maybe not a full blown release in 2K theaters but even a releasse in 500-700 would get it in all metro markets and even some smaller markets.

  • JVoorhees86

    I’m actually excited to see this. I watch the original every year at Christmas time and it is HORRIBLE but there is still something so likeable about it.
