Silent Night, Deadly Night ★ 1984 (R)

A psycho ax-murders people while dressed as jolly old St. Nick. Violent and disturbing, to say the least. Caused quite a controversy when it was released to theatres. Santa gimmick sold some tickets at the time, but resist the urge to rent it: it's completely devoid of worth, whatever the killer's outfit. As if one were not enough, we've been blessed with four sequels. 92m/C VHS, DVD . Lilyan Chauvin, Gilmer McCormick, Toni Nero; D: Charles E. Sellier; M: Perry Botkin.
