The new Silent Night from director Steven C. Miller is a “loose” remake of the 1984 cult classic Silent Night, Deadly Night. Both deal with a deranged killer who dresses as Santa before ho-ho-ho-ing the hell out of his hapless victims. We chatted with Miller about the differences between the two Silent Nights and why this is a film for the horror community.

How did you get involved in Silent Night?

Silent Night, Deadly Night was a huge thing for me growing up. It was a fun movie when I was little. When I grew up and got out here and made my first movie, the guy who was a huge part of buying that movie was Richard Saperstein. At the time they were playing around with the idea of a Silent Night, Deadly Night remake so I gave them my pitch and they liked it but it just sort of fell apart. »
