SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT—Christmas traditions: putting lights on the tree; giving Oprah's latest book-club selection to your stepmother; watching a psychotic Santa gruesomely murder people. One of the holiday season's grandest rituals, Silent Night, Deadly Night is here again thanks to the Grindhouse Film Festival, with a 35mm print of the 1984 slasher classic on the big screen! It's traditions like this that makes us love Christmas. EH
