Banned in some states, this cult classic follows a boy who witnesses his parents get murdered by a man wearing a Santa suit. Years later Billy cracks up and goes on a gory killing spree. Not the first 'killer Santa' movie-that honor goes to 'To All A Goodnight-which I also loved.

A notorious and controversial low-budget flick, in it's time. Now it's just another 80's slasher. Though, a decent one at that.

A great horror classic. I never understood why it was so contraversial though. A killer Santa Claus goes after a small town.

Review - Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)

When Billy Chapman (Danny Wagner and Robert Brian Wilson) was only seven years old, he witnessed a man dressed as Santa Claus murder his parents. Eleven years later, the memory having tortured him, he becomes a serial killer dressed as Santa Claus, punishing those who have been naughty in "Silent Night, Deadly Night."

From the title alone you know that this is going to be a horrible movie. Whether it's the acting or the writing that gets you, there is no way to enjoy this film in its intended manner. If anything, it's definitely worth the unintentional humor.

Itís not completely miserable though. There are a couple scenes that are tolerable and one that I actually really liked. Probably the most redeeming quality is that the death scenes are actually pretty cool for a movie like thi...

Hostel would have sent them running in the streets back in the 80's. I like this film, and it is a classic, in my opinion. One I would recommend, along with To All A Goodnight.To All a Goodnight

People really got up in arms about some strange things in the 80s... imagine showing them Hostel back then. Anyway, this is one of those classic 80s slashers - if you're a fan of this kind of genre, I would recommend it.

Did this film deserve to be banned in some states in the 80's?
