"He Knows Who's Been Naughty."

Welcome back for the final episode of the Dead Air Horror & Genre Podcast's Silent Night Deadly Night Retrospective Podcast Series; brought to you by GenreWatch, The Liberal Dead, and Doc Terror!

In this episode, Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) is reunited with his co-hosts James (@DrJimmyTerror) and Shawn (@TheLiberalDead) to unwrap 2012's "remake," Silent Night; aka the one that we reviewed already last year.

Why are we reviewing this movie a second time? Have our opinions on the film changed? How does the film fare against the rest of the franchise? What are the best kills? More importantly, how drunk can Jeff get before the end of the show?

Find the answers to these questions here - along with talk of the film's production history, themes and plot points, reception, and its place in the franchise. As always, the guys give you a straight shot on whether or not it's worth your time and/or money.

Come for the discussion, but stick around for the tree mulchers, boobs, alcohol poisoning, and RUN DMC.
