There have been so many horror films over the years that it is hard for people to come up with anything new to stand out. More often than not, fans revert back to the classics that no matter how ridiculous seem to never get old. One of the cult hits was 1972s Silent Night, Bloody Night which fell into obscurity after its initial release, but in the 80s garnered it’s now cult following. Now instead of fans getting another remake, Film Chest is rereleasing the film in high definition for the first time.

Silent Night, Bloody Night follows a man who returns home on Christmas Eve and finds his house has been turned into a mental institution for the criminally insane. But the day of his return, he is set on fire and dies and the institution-house is later closed down. A few years later, his grandson finally decides to sell the house, but the towns people have mixed feelings on keeping people away from the house, especially when a serial killer escapes from another institution and finds refuge there killing anyone coming near the house. This is one of those horror films that is an acquired taste. It manages to entertain for the nostalgic aspect, but that is really about it. The story makes little to no sense at times and is all over the place. Luckily, this is one that already has its fans and this release is about them. The previous releases for this film are notoriously dark making it hard to see what is going on most of the time. But this latest release has been restored into hi-def from the 35mm and looks great. Even the night scenes are much cleaner making the strange cult hit all that much more enjoyable.

There is a strange and creepy flash back sequence that is made even more so with this version thanks to being able to see more clearly what is actually happening. It’s so refreshing to see time being spent on classics as opposed to just remaking the films. Fans love their cult horror and this is sure to be a must have for fans of cult slasher cinema.
