Solid remake of 80's horror camp classic.
5 January 2013 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Anyone who knows anything about Horror movies, knows this was a Silent Night, Deadly Night remake. If the fact that both Malcolm McDowel(Halloween) and Jamie King(My Bloody Valentine)Starr in it, didn't tip you off, then you need to go back to Horror 101 or wait for the end credits to hear the theme song. Anyway, The premise was different, but still undoubtedly a remake.

The Antler horns scene is the same as in the original. Leanea Quigleywas the original actress. She was in Graduation Day and Demons 2 and Chainsaw Hookers. They should have gotten her to play Jamie King's mom. This remake was actually entertaining as was Malcilm McDowell. "Double S, double SCrewed" Jamie King is likewise enjoyable as she is quickly becoming a scream queen of the 2000's.

My only complaint would have to be the motive for the Murders. This is largely due to the fact that the new version completely avoids the whole "Mother Supirior" storyline. Our young turned murderer St. Nick; grows up in a foster home run by one of the meanest Mother Supiors portrayed on screen. She teaches the young boy that bad deeds must be "Punished". Among those is fornication. "Punish" is actually the one-liner delivered by killer Santa in the original movie right before he punishes the wrong doers. This is a mistake most of these remakes seem to make every time. Leaving out the integral part or motive for the killings. Anyway, the original storyline gives Killer Santa a bit more charm and a more believable motive that just Jealousy.

Abiet that complaint; I still found this movie loads more entertaining than most horror remakes. Good gore, kills and back story got me liking this better than Black X-Mas, My Bloody Valentine, Nightmare In Elm Street, Friday The 13th and most definitely the crappy Prom Night remakes of past years.

If you are a old school horror movie fan; give this remake a shot. You won't be disappointed.
