Tonight the Hollywood Theater continues an annual holiday tradition, screening their 35 mm print of the 1984 Christmas horror film Silent Night, Deadly Night:
If you're getting a little weary of the holiday cheer and goodwill, a little coldblooded murder might be just the antidote, even if this one's a helluva lot more camp than scary. As our own Zac Pennington once wrote, our killer here is "perhaps the least convincing horror villain of all time: a dashing, doe-eyed WASP-y dude in a Santa suit whose creepy one liners alternate between the equally un-scary 'Puuunish!' and 'Naaaw-tee!'—delivered in a nearly unintelligible monotone." Good times nonetheless. 7:30 pm, $7.
