I love bad horror movies. I love the hobbyist aspect of it, people devoting WAY too much time to show off their clever tricks for gore and makeup. I love the bad acting, the way many horror movies take themselves way too seriously. They're funnier, in some cases, then most comedies. Which brings me to... Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 It is the sequel to, as you can imagine, Silent Night, Deadly Night. This is a movie I've never seen, though some seem to think it's a decent movie. And when I say I've never seen that, I should qualify this by saying I've seen most of it, in that Part 2 is probably made of 50% flashback where they rehash the entire first movie. See, the producers were supposed to just recut the movie and release it as a true sequel, but decided that this would be wrong, so they recut half the movie and paid a few actors nothing to make the other 50%. So, this is a movie about the brother of the kid in the first movie who , after they both witness a Santa Claus murder their parents, is forced to dress up as Santa and goes on a killing streak. Ricky. Survivor. Orphan. Santa Claus? Man. And how did they cast the movie? Well, this is where the movie starts to shine. The younger brother is played, if my figures are correct, 5 people throughout this movie. Apparently, 2 of these are Rickys from the first movie, so you have to forgive the filmmakers a little. So, we have different actors for Ricky at 4, 10, 14, 15, and 18. If you count the infant from the first movie, that's 6. We've all aged and seen friends and family age, so we know how different people look from one year to the next. The main star is Ricky at 18. This actor, Eric Freeman, is a genius. Here's a clip of him in action. Pay close attention to his eyebrows. They're... spirited. This is his acting style, you see. Every word he utters requires some sort of eyebrow motion. With a script as choppy as this one, it makes every scene he's in memorable and hilarious. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! And I do. I think it's the funniest movie I've had the pleasure to watch. Here's the rub: somebody decided to make a remake of Silent Night Deadly Night, which meant this DVD went out of print in about 2007. However, my addiction to checking Amazon for a cheap copy has resulted in my discovery that a new version will be released, with both Silent Night Deadly Night and Part 2 on the same DVD, on December 4th, the same day as the remake, Silent Night, goes straight to DVD. So you won't have to watch it in pieces on youtube, won't have to go to the seedier, privateerier sides of the internet to download it. Save the date! Have your friends over and laugh. And tell me of your favorite bad horror movie.
