Storyline

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

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Ricky Caldwell: That bastard. He left us out there to die!
Henry Bloom: That was so long ago. How could you possibly remember all that?
Ricky Caldwell: Because... I was there. You know, I don't like your attitude, Bloom!
Henry Bloom: My attitude is not the issue here, Mr. Caldwell.
Ricky Caldwell: Oh yeah, I forgot. You in a hurry, Doc? Am I wasting your valuable time?

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 »

Beautifully Bad
29 December 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Upon originally rental of Silent Night Deadly Night 2 a friend of mine and I were warned by the video clerk (which caught both us off guard since it's something that had never happened to either of us before and hasn't happened since) not to rent it; that people said it was really really bad. Needless to say we didn't heed her warning and rented SNDN 2. When we got the tape home we debated about even watching it. Maybe the video clerk was right and we should save ourselves the agony / it wasn't too late. Finally giving in (even mumbling through the FBI warning)we prepared for 88 minutes of torture.

To her credit the video clerk was right ~ SNDN 2 was bad but it's beautifully bad and it's tongue is so deep in it's cheek that it's pure hilarity. Half of the movie a recap of the original SNDN (I had never seen SNDN @ this time so it didn't bother me and still doesn't) The new footage is 100% camp gold. Boom mics and movie crews (which have been clean up on DVD) drop openly into shots. Eric Freeman's eyebrows and nostrils chew up every frame they're in and his over the top delivery makes brilliant catch phrases out of something as simple as 'RED CAR' and 'GARABAGE DAY' (I still imitate him when putting out my trash.) W/ this one viewing this movie became a personal favourite and take it in just about every Xmas since (and occasionally throughout the year / I did originally see it in July)
