MOVIE COMMENTARY: Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)

poster_silentnightdeadlynightIt’s a Christmas Miracle! The Film Pigs return to make everyone’s holiday season a little brighter. And what better way to celebrate the Christian / Jewish / Muslim / Pagan / Pastafarian season than with a movie about a homicidal Santa Claus? Answer: THERE IS NO BETTER WAY!

Silent Night, Deadly Night takes us back to a simpler time, when ghostbusting was king and traversing the space-time continuum in modified DeLoreans was commonplace. In the early 80s, no one thought twice about a dusty old nun whipping two naked teenagers with a leather belt, or of wearing cheap sweaters with no undershirts or bras. We were too busy fighting Communism when, in retrospect, we should have been paying more attention to drunken, murderous Santa Clauses. Happy holidays!

TO SYNC WITH MOVIE: start this commentary 10 seconds after starting movie (chapter 1 for DVD/BD).

      1. Wouldn’t that be a treat.
        If he doesn’t want to then he doesn’t have to.
        I’m flattered jus’ by the…. PPS?
        *looks it up on urban dictionary*
        Public Piss Syndrome?
        Well, if he has nuthin’ else better to do then here
        are some things about me he can include in said letter.
        1; I like boxing. I’m big fan of Joe Luis and Mike Tyson.
        2; I consider Gilbert Gottfried to be one of the greatest actors of all time.
        3; I often pea in the sink rather than in the toilet.
        4; My favorite film is ‘Cop and a Half’.

        Well, that’s about it.
        Btw, how do I get a user photo?
        Does it have anything to do with the website bar?

        1. User photos are generated by the Gravatar compatibility built into WordPress.

          http://en.gravatar.com/

          It associates a user-provided photo with an email address, so every time you post with that email address, the associated photo is added.

          I made the Pigs Gravatars by chopping up the site title bar photo (which I made from a pic originally created by Stee).

  1. With the almightly DVDPodBlast defunct and seeming to have disappeared off the face of the earth, and Rifftrax continuing their reign of utter mediocrity at a price…

    It’s nice to see that the Film Pigs will still get out a commentary at least once a year.

    1. We are proud to continue our long-standing tradition of no-cost mediocrity. Although, that’s simply because we are too dim to figure out how to make any money with this web site.

      We dream of becoming sell-outs.

  2. I am saddened that the dvdpodblast site is gone. I wanted to converse with the Kaiser about zen master Seagal’s LAWMAN series.

    You can still download their commentaries at archive.org.

    1. I will enter into a discussion about “Steven Seagal LAWMAN” only if it is understood that “Steven Seagal LAWMAN” is the GREATEST TELEVISION SHOW OF ALL TIME.
