Eric Freeman 5

If you know anything about us, WM Club started with couple of guys challenging each other to watch some of the most ridiculous, cheese movies they can think of. One of the first movies we watched- and the first to grace our blog was the absolutely terrific Silent Night, Deadly Night 2.

Remember this?

Now, the mystique around this movie kept expanding ’cause at the time no one could tell what happened to the main actor, striking Eric Freeman who after couple stint on TV disappeared for something like two decades. Next we fallowed the story with a surprise return of Eric Freeman (only second to the resurrection of Samurai Cop) taking his rightful place in the fandom. But now something even more awesome happened, Freeman himself took it upon himself to close the circle and write the final, real chapter of the story of Ricky Caldwell.

Scott Pearlman (the director working on a documentary on Freeman) read the script and said Eric put a lot of care into it creating a very logical and satisfying way for Ricky to return and evolve, it’s not a slasher film per se which may turn hardcore fans off but it truly respects the character and takes him in a different direction while paying homage to what came before. If I had to describe it its like a blend of North By North West and the Fugitive fused with Death Wish and set in the Silent Night, Deadly Night universe. It’s also hyper violent, which is a must have of course.”

So, if everything works out, and I have every reason to think it will, Garbage Day will be  upon us again… and that alone is reason enough to celebrate!

“This story was written as a natural progression of the character Ricky Caldwell from 1987’s Silent Night, Deadly Night 2. That movie came to a climax with a bloody carnage-laden rampage and the death of Mother Superior and Ricky Caldwell being shot. Twenty five years have elapsed and Caldwell is a patient at Waverly Psychiatric Hospital. He is seemingly normal, but things quickly go awry when a body is found in Caldwell’s room. This script can be a sequel to SNDN 2 or as a standalone movie with no tie-in whatsoever. Obviously, there is a monetary advantage of having a huge built-in fan base from the cult hit movie.”
