A loose remake of the horror classic Silent Night, Deadly Night, Malcolm McDowell and Jaime King star as a small-town sheriff and deputy on the hunt for a murderous Santa Claus terrorizing their community on Christmas Eve. But with the streets full of Santas for the annual Christmas parade, the killer is hiding in plain sight. He's made his list, checked it twice, and the naughty are going to pay with their lives.

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.
By no means a masterpiece, but it's a damn good time with a great villain who spares no one...
Santa slasher flick sticks to genre template while Jaime King works overtime to make us care about the person gunning for ol' St. Nick.
Steven C. Miller's remake of the nasty 80s original keeps the violence and mayhem but adds both personality and humor with the result being a fun slasher that vastly improves on Silent Night, Deadly Night.
This holiday season, horror fans should be sure to unwrap Steven C. Miller's Silent Night for an unexpected holiday treat, even if it's not all mistletoe and sweet candy canes.
It doesn't betray the legacy of Silent Night, Deadly Night, but it doesn't add anything to it either. Ho-ho-hum.
