The door of the mental hospital opens, releasing Ricky from its confines. He takes with him the terrifying memory of his brother Billy's death and the burning image of Mother Superior-the powerful figure that brought about his brother's violent demise. For Ricky, starting a new life means avenging his brother's death. By whatever means necessary, whether it be the cutting edge of a shiny steel knife blade, or the electrifying charge of a set of battery cables, Ricky is set in this blind journey of revenge leading ultimately to Mother Superior. As Mother Superior prays in the dark, we suggest she say an extra prayer for herself, because not even her faith will be enough to stop Ricky. But prayers will do little for in the silent part of this night! Written by Chance

Did You Know?


The producers of Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984) wanted director Lee Harry to re-cut the first film and insert one or two new scenes with Eric Freeman playing a mental patient, to make the story in the original film appear to be nothing more than the ravings of an asylum inmate. But screenwriters Lee Harry, Joseph H. Earle, Dennis Patterson and Lawrence Appelbaum, wrote short vignettes involving the patient's youth, as he killed several people, and eventually it became this sequel. There wasn't enough material for a full-length film, so numerous flashback sequences were added. The film still ran short, so almost 10 minutes of closing credits were added, showing the full cast and crew of this film and its predecessor. See more »


In the VHS version, when Ricky crosses the street during his shooting rampage, the entire crew is visibly standing around, equipment and all. The DVD release crops out most of the crew, though a boom mic and the top of someone's head are still visible. See more »

Crazy Credits

So much flashback footage from part one is shown in the first half of this movie, that when the end credits start, they credit the ENTIRE cast and crew from part one also, along with the cast and crew of this sequel. See more »

A ridiculous sequel to "Silent Night,Deadly Night".
1 May 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Little Ricky(Eric Freeman),the brother of our killer Billy from "Silent Night,Deadly Night",is grown up now and has inherited his brother's dislike for naughtiness.In the office of his 13th psychiatrist,he tells his family's background,including events following the first movie,where Ricky kills random people."Silent Night,Deadly Night Part 2" offers nothing new in comparison to the original.In fact the first 35 minutes or so are just flashbacks from the first film.The acting of Eric Freeman is incredibly lousy,however the killing spree in a yuppie neighborhood is slightly amusing to say the least."Silent Night,Deadly Night Part 2" is mildly entertaining in its intentional awfulness-that's why I'd give it 5 out of 10.Stick with the original.
