A film whose reputation precedes itself, but for all the wrong reasons. Many remember this as a vile defamation of the Santa Claus legend and the Christmas tradition, but I see as an almost brilliant origin story of a brutal movie murderer. The Batman Begins of slasher movies, if I may.

The story of Billy Freeman’s descent into pure madness and brutal savagery is an absolutely fantastic tale, and it is a shame the film is overshadowed for being something it is not. But I digress. Showing up to the theater, I was pleased to see that many shared my sentiments, as the theater was packed. I sat excitedly in my seat, waiting for the movie to begin. Once the title (as well as the insane musical score) appeared, we all applauded with great reverence.

We would applaud and cheer many more times during the showing. I would even go as far as to recite every utterance of “PUNISH” and “NAUGHTY!” throughout the movie. I’m talking full concert experience. I was so glad. The last time I was there, it was for a double feature showing of Terminator 1&2, and the crowd was really disappointing. Nobody was into it at all. Only me and like 4 other people cheered for Arnold’s iconic “I’ll be back” moment. Seriously, how could you not cheer for “I’ll be back”??

So I’m happy to report that this crowd was the total opposite. They were there to have a good time, as was I. I was lucky enough to talk to another audience member, an older woman named Amber. This is what she had to say:

“I remember when this movie came out, I was a teenager, and I loved all horror movies. And when I saw the preview for this, I wanted to see it so bad. But my father forbade me from seeing it. So I never got to see it until years later on video. So I’m glad I’m able to see it now on the big screen since I wasn’t able to when I was younger.”

Stuff like that you just love to hear. How we can all come together and finally celebrate the movies we love on the grandest of scales: the big screen. And movies like Silent Night, Deadly Night at that. If only Mickey Rooney can see us now…
