Thread: Silent Night Deadly Night Remake Coming in 2012

    Silent Night Deadly Night Remake Coming in 2012

    According to this article on Dread Central, Malcolm McDowell is going to be starring in a remake of the film to be titled simply Silent Night.

    "To be produced by Richard Saperstein (The Mist), Brian Witten (Chernobyl Diaries) and Shara Kay (The Barrens), Silent Night is set to go before cameras next month in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, with Malcolm McDowell starring as Sheriff Cooper, a small-town hero ready for some big-time action. Miller will direct from a script by exec producer Jayson Rothwell. Anchor Bay has picked up North American distribution rights to the project that will unspool this holiday season."

    I like the original but it's far from flawless.

    Steven C. Miller is directing, the guy who made Automaton Transfusion.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Do you think it will get all the controversy the original got?

    What an odd title to remake. Not mainstream enough for name brand recognition but hell they made a remake of I Spit on Your Grave so fuck it.

    Could be good, but it would be a mistake to try to out-sleaze the original. Now, a well-made Henry: POASK-style picture could work but I doubt the director has the skill to pull it off having unfortunately watched Automaton Transfusion.

    Nope. I doubt it'll get any controversy at all unless he goes really, really out there. Like Alex says, the original is pretty sleazy but by modern standards it's not that harsh.

    I always get this one and Silent Night, Bloody Night confused. Is this the one with the kid who sees his parents get killed by the Santa robber guy, and then ends up as the Santa at a hardware store after being raised in a Catholic orphanage?

    Yes, SNDN is what you described...

    I just was reminiscing about the hub-bub the original caused way back when...I didn't think anyone would care in this day and age, but I thought I would just put that out there...how times have changed...

    What was the controversy back then? Was it much different than other slashers?

    Huh, just read up a bit, and watched the youtubed Siskel and Ebert clip on it. Hard to believe it was such a big deal to have a Santa-suited killer.

    If you still think Halloween is the scariest night of the year...
