”Silent Night, Deadly Night” is one of the best anti-Christmas DVDs

WHO’S NAUGHTY AND NICE Robert Brian Wilson, Will Hare

PREMISE In this most notorious of all Christmas-themed slasher movies, traumatized teen Billy (Wilson, above), who’s always thought of Santa Claus as the punisher of bad children, dons a red suit and embarks on a slay ride, slaughtering both the naughty and the nice.

BAH, HUMBUG! MOMENT One victim is impaled on wall-mounted reindeer antlers.

MEMORABLE QUOTE Grandpa (Hare) instills a lifelong fear of St. Nick in young Billy, telling him: ”You see Santa Claus tonight, you better run boy, you better run for ya life!”
