If you know the basics about me, you know my deep hate for remakes. Remakes always take the original film and well it makes people forget about it. People now-a-days seem to think if a film was made in the 70’s, it’s not a real film because there’s no CGI crap. Ugh. Anyways…
Silent Night is a bit of a remake, but the film took influence from a true event that happened in 2008. So at least the remake tried to be its own film in a way with including a type of “current” event. This film has become one of my “Christmas” films. What can I say, I think everyday is Halloween – including Christmas. With that said, this film will never be a classic or totally stand against the original film.
When it comes down to it the only reason I originally watched the film is because of Malcolm McDowell. He is a major favorite of mine, I just can’t help it. I think it’s turning into an addition, one that I’m fine with.
