The police force of a remote Midwestern town search for a killer Santa Claus who is picking off citizens on Christmas Eve.
With the Holiday season upon is I thought it be best to review one of the newest Christmas themed releases, which brought me to the remake of the 1984 holiday classic "Silent Night, Deadly Night", simply titled "Silent Night".
Now one big problem with this film is it's taking the route most modern day slashers are taking, where the film becomes more of an action styled film that mainly focuses on kills and making sure the scenes move at a fast pace. The plot in this film very, very thin and it rapidly becomes boring viewing which isn't helped by by how predictable it is. It didn't help itself by having references to the first 2 films which just made you snigger to yourself and start to think you should watch them instead.
The casting of Malcolm McDowell excited me as he's a truly talented actor who's played some amazing roles in great films, but he's wasted in this film and he honestly doesn't seem bothered at all and puts in a half hearted performance (come on Malcolm you're better than this). Jaime King is our lead actress and if I'm honest I've never been her biggest fan and she didn't exactly help change my mind with her performance, she's so stiff and always looks uneasy on screen.
