A Few Interesting Ideas
20 December 2015 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Silent Night, Deadly Night 2 (2015)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Angelica (Julia Farrell) and her brother James (Luc Bernier) return to East Willard to pay their respects to a dead loved one. They end up staying at a bed and breakfast (ran by Jennifer Runyon Corman) where they start to look into their past and learn about a bizarre set of murders in 1972.

You know, it's pretty amazing to think that 1972's SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT was originally released without too much praise. Over the years it ended up in the public domain so many horror fans started to rediscover it and before long it became a cult favorite. The cult following got the film remade in 2013 and then this direct sequel followed. No, this isn't a direct sequel to the 2013 film. This here is actually a direct sequel to the 1972 film.

Is this movie any good? Not really but I think there are some good things scattered throughout. The film was obviously working on a very low-budget, which is most evident when it comes to the murder scenes. The death scenes are all rather cheap and especially one scene with a rubber hand. Another problem with the budget is that it appears they couldn't shoot too much footage because there's a lot of footage used from the original movie. At first I was thinking of praising the film because it wasn't using too much footage from the first movie but then the final thirty minutes are pretty much taken from the 1972 film. I mean, you pretty much get to see the entire ending of that picture!

Some might think that was needed since a lot of people might not remember that film's events but I think it could have been handled in a much better way where we aren't given twenty-plus minutes worth of re-used footage. With all of that said, I thought there was some good things here. Director Dustin Ferguson and writer John Klyza deserve credit for at least attempting to make a direct sequel. I thought the screenplay offered up some nice ideas to build on what we saw in the original and Ferguson does a nice job considering the budget he had.

I also thought both Farrell and Bernier were good in their parts. Sometimes in these low-budget movies it's hard to really give any type of performance but I thought both were fine. Jennifer Runyon Cormon, best remembered for TO ALL A GOODNIGHT, UP THE CREEK and GHOSTBUSTERS, appears in a pretty big role and it was nice seeing her. Some of the supporting players are rather bad but none of them are in big enough of roles to where it really effects the film.

SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT 2 isn't a complete success but at the same time there are a few interesting ideas. I just wish there wasn't so much footage from the original film used.
