Here Comes Santa Claus: ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night’ Remake Is a Go!


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas for slasher fans. Director Steven C. Miller’s (Scream of the Banshee, Automaton Transfusion) remake of Charles E. Sellier, Jr.’s beloved 1984 holiday classic Silent Night, Deadly Night has been greenlit.

Malice in Wonderland scribe Jayson Rothwell will pen the script and serve as executive producer. Richard Saperstein (The Mist), Brian Witten (Chernobyl Diaries) and Shara Kay (The Barrens) are producing. Anchor Bay will handle North American distribution.

Silent Night, Deadly Night follows a murderous Santa out to slaughter all who have been bad, but in particular nude young women and the men who screw them. Genre icon Malcolm McDowell (Clockwork Orange) has already been cast in the remake as Sheriff Cooper, a small town lawman in for the night of his career.

The Silent Night, Deadly Night redo is slated for release this Christmas season.
