Silent Night Reviews

Apart from some modestly inventive carnage and an undeniably humorous hambone turn by Malcolm McDowell, there's really nothing here to make genre fans dash through the snow (or maneuver through traffic) to megaplexes.

Fans of nearly nude women being fed into wood chippers will not go home disappointed (except, very likely, in their hollow lives.)

The movie's intended audience will likely be satisfied by its parade of gory mayhem, cheap thrills and groan-worthy dark humor. Everyone else: You're on your own.

This brisk reimagining of the 1984 slasher "Silent Night, Deadly Night" delivers the seasonal goods with admirable efficiency and not a little wit.

This unimaginative remake of Silent Night, Deadly Night continues the trend of mediocre remakes of '80s era horror films.
