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
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 »
When Ricky talks about his foster family, he says he went to them being 12 years old. Five years later, he tells us his stepfather died and we see him standing in front of his grave. Problem is,it's a grown man and not a 17 year old, problem which continues when he says he is 18 and with that, through the rest of the movie. See more »
Hello, Ricky. I'm your court appointed therapist. My name is Dr. Henry Bloom. You can call me Henry, or if you want, you can just call me Doc.
Fuck off... Doc!

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 »
Though the rehash in the beginning is tedious (most wouldn't be watching this trash if they hadn't seen the first one) there are some of the funniest, most gratuitous scenes ever in this film. When Ricky is wandering on his rampage and menacingly spouting lines like "Garbage Day!" and "Punish!" it is absolutely hilarious : perhaps unintentionally, but hilarious nonetheless. This movie is well worth watching for that ten minute segment alone. The scene in the movie theater is a nice touch, and required the only thought given to the whole movie. Get this one at the local dollar video - don't pay more than 1.50 for it and you'll be happy. Also, if you HAVEN'T seen the first, dont - just watch this one and you're set.
