A reporter investigating the bizarre death of a woman who leaped from a building in flames finds herself mixed up in a cult of witches who are making her part of their sacrificial ceremony during the Christmas season.
Interwoven stories that take place on Christmas Eve, as told by one festive radio host: A family brings home more than a Christmas tree, a student documentary becomes a living nightmare, a Christmas spirit terrorizes, Santa slays evil.
Most of the characters are named after members of the famous Leeds United football team from the seventies: Cooper, Giles, Madeley, Revie, Jones, Jordan, McKenzie. In addition, Bremner St and Reaney's Diner are mentioned in the script. See more »

One of the best Slasher Movies that I have seen in a while
This movie is a loose remake of the 1984 slasher Silent Night,Deadly Night. The story takes in a small town being preyed on a killer dressed as Santa Claus. In my opinion this one of the best slasher movie that I have seen in a while, it had good character development, great kills and a good twist of who the killer is. For me the best performance in the movie is Jamie King because she goes through a lot of emotions in the movie and she was strong which made me cheer for her in the finale when she kicks some major butt. The directer Steven C. Miller has done a very good job with the dark tone of the movie which I really enjoyed. For me the original is still the best but this one really does live up to it. Highly recommended for Slasher fans.
