Silent Night, Bloody Night (1972) Poster


Many of the cast of players were former "superstar" actor/personalities from Andy Warhol's "Factory" years: Star Mary Woronov (who was at one time married to director Theodore Gershuny), supporting players Ondine, Candy Darling, Kristen Steen, Tally Brown, Lewis Love, filmmaker Jack Smith, and artist Susan Rothenberg.
Star James Patterson ("Jeffery Butler") died of cancer soon after principal photography was completed. His lines were dubbed in by another actor.
After leaving the drive-in circuit in the early 70's the film fell into public domain. It remained obscure until the mid 80's when it appeared on Elvira's Movie Macabre where it began developing a cult following that grew with its eventual release on home video.
The house used for the Butler Mansion still stands in Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York.
Filmed in 1970 but not released until 1972.
The film's working title was "Zora"--an odd choice, since nothing or no one is referred to by that name in the film.
Final film of Candy Darling.

John Carradine never utters a word in the film. His character's "croaking" noises were dubbed in during post-production.
The German title for the film is 'Blutnacht - Das Haus des Todes', which means "Bloodnight - The House of Death".
Filmed in 1970 as "Night Of The Dark Full Moon" (from Famous Monsters #190 John Carradine retrospective Part III).
