Lets get one thing straight- first one didn’t make much sense… or any sense for that matter. Your parents are killed by a dude in the Santa Clause costume, you end up in an orphanage run by an devious nun and you naturally grow up to be a killer in a Santa Clause suit too? I mean come on! But those were the 80s, people did a lot of coke and you can forgive them for wanting to see some blood and some boobs.

So after a (kinda) success of the first one, they decided to make a Part 2. How can you make a part two you say when a main hero (well, a villain) is all kinds of dead you might ask. Not a problem! He had a brother!  No he didn’t you say… Yes he did! And that’s final!

Silent Night, Deadly Night 2 just plays almost a whole footage of a first movie interrupted by a police psychologist’s  interview and they also splice the original footage with some random footage of a baby brother. He was a baby when his parent died but it doesn’t matter. If you survive a traumatic experience you HAVE TO become a CRAZED KILLER! Some thing are just written in stone… or something. So, little Ricky grows up in the orphanage under an evil Mother Superior, gets out, gets incredibly big and muscle bound- in about a years time ( I guess anabolic steroids where popular thing these days too) and naturally starts killing people. At some point he finds himself a nice blond girl to settle down with and starts acting normally but that doesn’t last too long and soon enough he losses his mind again (because he ran into  moronic ex- boyfriend of the said girl ) and than Ricky does what Ricky does best- goes on the murdering rampage of EPIC proportions!* Immortal “Garbage day” moment is of course a part of this rampage 🙂

What  fascinates me the most is the way men act in this movie. We are portrayed as animals, obiasly unable to control our urges… I mean you see a dude who was in relationship with a woman for 5 years or something who after being gently rejected starts tearing girls shirt and soon enough tries to rape her? He got his punishment of course (Ricky run him over with a tractor I believe) but that kind of behavior is common theme in this movie, men just randomly rip apart girls clothing, some breasts are exposed as a result and than they pay the ultimate price. Truly fascinating…

Anyway, The Verdict-  this movie is truly terrible by all accounts, but it’s also the most fun we had in ages so if you want to watch just one terrible film ever- Silent Night, Deadly Night 2 is your movie!

Trivia: The director on the commentary track claims they tried to find Eric Freeman (Ricky) to participate for the commentary track, but the director claims he is untraceable. Freeman’s current whereabouts remain a mystery.
