It’s that time of year again! Grindhouse Film Fest presents Silent Night, Deadly Night for all of your seasonal needs.
Wednesday night at 9:30 at the Hollywood Theatre, The Grindhouse Film Festival presents the annual screening of SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT! A 35mm print of the 1984 Christmas classic about an axe-wielding psychopath dressed as Santa Claus. This movie was originally released at Christmas time, then quickly pulled from theaters due to public outrage.
SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT (1984) When a young boy’s parents are murdered on Christmas Eve by a man dressed as Santa Claus, he develops a lifelong hatred of Old Saint Nick. He then spends the rest of his childhood in an orphanage run by a mean overbearing nun. As a grown man, he is finally pushed over the edge when he’s forced to be a department store Santa. Now as an axe wielding maniac in a Santa suit, he sets out to punish all who are naughty this Christmas Eve! Classic scenes include the sledding beheading, the toy store montage, and crazy Grandpa terrifying little Billy with his tales of a rampaging killer Santa Claus.
Beer will be provided by Bridgeport Brewery. Advance tickets are on the website: www.grindhousefilmfest.com
