This marks the first of two times Clint Howard plays a character named Ricky. He is the only actor to play him more than once (not counting archive footage). It is unclear if he is playing the same character from the first two films. See more »
After Kim leaves the office Christmas party, she stumbles out into the street and sees Ricky standing beside his parked car to her right. The license plate on the car is backwards, which normally would indicate that the shot was reversed in order for it to match up with the direction Kim was looking. However, all other text in that shot is NOT backwards! Correctly displayed is the word "restaurant" on the green sign in the background, the word "Dresden" on the green awning next to that sign, the name "Mustang" and the Ford name and emblem on the back of the car. The only thing flipped is the license plate, which means that it was done physically on the actual car and is not an editing trick. See more »
With an attitude like that you're going to lose your job.
Oh yeah, well then fuck my attitude, fuck the job, and fuck you!

The 1996 UK video version (titled "Bugs") was cut by 8 secs by the BBFC. A shot of a man hanging by his nipples was removed. See more »
The fourth entry in the mostly terrible Silent Night, Deadly Night series tries to move away from the killer Santa shtick. The story this time is about a female reporter who investigates a girl's suspicious death and becomes involved with a group of witches. Clint Howard's in it and hammy as usual. I'm not always a fan of his but many are, particularly those who were weened on straight-to-video '90s trash like this. Neith Hunter (who?) is the female lead. She's certainly pretty and shows some skin but does nothing else to leave an impression. The best part of the cast is former Bond girl Maud Adams as a lezzy witch. It's directed by Brian Yuzna, who has done more fun and creative horror films than this. There's a bit of the gross-out stuff you expect from his movies. There's also some on-the-nose messaging going on about sexism and feminism or something. But it doesn't amount to anything and seems to be the kind of business writers throw in to make themselves feel less like hacks when they're churning out Z-grade material. If you're a fan of the Silent Night, Deadly Night series -- you have my sympathies for your lack of taste. Just kidding. Sort of. Anyway, this isn't the worst of the lot but if you're really hoping for some guy in a Santa suit stabbing people then you'll hate this.
