Joshua's rating of the film Silent Night, Deadly Night

"On the warm side of the do-or!" I've never thought of this as one of the greatest golden age slasher films, but credit shall be given considering the involved tale of a haunted young Billy as he tries (and fails) to readjust to life at Christmas. Sometimes awkward, usually fun, it's true that the Antler & Window scenes lack logic when it comes to hearing doors bursting but I can overlook this. "Merry Christmas Baby"
