Silent Night (2012)

"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.

In this episode, Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) is joined by co-host James (@DrJimmyTerror) to tackle 1991's wacked out "sequel" Silent Night Deadly Night V: The TOymaker; aka the one where Mickey Rooney kidnaps kids and Pinocchio gets his groove on.

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.

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.

Welcome back for another 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 joined by co-hosts James (@DrJimmyTerror) and Shawn (@TheLiberalDead) to tackle 1987's infamous kind-of-sequel Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2; aka the one with "Garbage Day."

Is the film's bizarre clipshow structure watchable, or does it make the guys want to give Director Lee Harry a fat luimp of coal? How exactly did this movie come to be? Why do people think this movie is a "classic"? How many times does Eric Freeman raise his eyebrows? Why do all men in this franchise tear womens' shirts off?

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 ugly sweaters, confusing plotline, and stroke-faced nuns.

In this episode, Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) is joined by co-hosts James (@DrJimmyTerror) and Shawn (@TheLiberalDead) to tackle 1984's Silent Night Deadly Night; the one that started it all and made the PTA collectively lose their shit.

Is the film's notoriety well-deserved, or is it just a case of clever marketing and overreaction? How many different double entendres can James make about Linnea Quigley's boobs?

Most importantly, what do the guys think about the film overall?

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 ugly sweaters, bad music, and nun-beatings.
