Podcast: Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 (1987)

In our special Christmas Eve episode, Chris, Nick, and special guest Emily Phillips dive in to the garbage pile and pull up this bizarre cut up of a low budget Santa slaying fiasco. Maybe you've seen a little clip online called "GARBAGE DAY?"

Well, this is where it originates.

After the first Silent Night, Deadly Night was banned in a number of theaters, the producers wanted to slice up the first movie--about a damaged boy who goes on a revenge killing spree dressed as Santa Claus--into an all new less gory version. Instead, the writer and director insisted on shooting new footage, adding a psychotic and much buffer younger brother with more expressive eyebrows.

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a YouTube cip of the entire Garbage Day scene anymore, so here's a montage of Ricky's eyebrows.

Also if you're in the Austin area on Christmas Day (2012), Terror Tuesday at the Alamo Drafthouse is doing a special 35mm screening of Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2. It's actually a surprisingly pretty movie, given its tiny budget. Check it out!

Enough dilly dallying. Here's the podcast:

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