sorry for the mistakes!
Silent night deadly night
If one tells me that he does not love Christmas, I ask if he has
childhood traumas like our Bill. Because you never know. The
grandfather who terrifies him with stories about Santa Claus, who he
believes punishes naughty children, a person dressed as Santa Claus
massacres his family and then he grow up in an orphanage where he is
abused. It must be said that is a way of creating a psychopath,
certainly very imaginative. Elaborate and imaginative. But actually it
takes away any surprises (no, we're not making spoilers, you can
understand right away how things are going) in a film that slowly loses
its initial interest to let go in predictable developments and in more
imaginative than scary murders.
However, "Silent Night Deadly Night" marks the beginning of a highly
successful franchise conceived by Charles Sellier best known as a
producer (Emmy nominated for "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" in 1980)
than a director.
Of course, part of his success is because he describes Santa Claus as a
ruthless killer, which at the time created the usual wave of
controversy on the part of the people who made picket lines in front of
the cinema. Free advertising that never hurts.
With "Halloween" in mind and defects apart (see lack of surprises and a
very tight cliffhanger), this 1984 movie is still enjoyable thanks to a
whole series of b movie things that make it "interesting". The
continuous and redundant flashbacks, a sometimes paradoxical trail of
blood and many free tits with the "scream queen" Linnea Quigley in
topless to act as a bow on the pack.
I was talking about Billy, who finds a job in a toy store after growing
up with difficulty. Apart from the absurdity of the thing, our
protagonist also falls in love with a colleague but, Christmas comes
and the problems begin. He is obliged to replace Santa, Pamela, his
colleague, risks being raped in front of him his. Things that, even a
child would understand, trigger the violence of our protagonist, who
becomes an avenger of bad people, dressed as Santa Claus.
They are paying the price with the cry of "Naughtyyyy!" lot
of people: the same Pamela and the colleague who tried to rape her,
hanged quickly with Christmas lights. In addition, the shop owner and
another person, a couple in petting, one of whom is Linnea Quigley
impaled with the horns of a stuffed ibex (!!!), a person on the bob and
more. Final goal the old Mother Superior who mistreated him as a child.
Final violent in front of terrified children who could take his place,
but remember, Billy has a younger brother and he is Naughty as well
