Probably the worst-acted film in the history of movies, Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 follows the story of Ricky, a serial-killing psychopath who dresses up as Santa Claus and punishes sinners, or as he refers to it, the "Naughty."
The reason we don't even have to really talk about the first Silent Night, Deadly Night is that every kill from the first one is shown in Part 2. That's right, half the movie is just clips from Part 1. After explaining to a doctor the entire first movie in detail (which Ricky was never even there, so how could he know this stuff?), he kills the doctor by strangling him with the tape recording film and rips the door off the hinges and goes out on Christmas Eve to do some killing.
Where the movie becomes great is all in the cheesy acting, the ridiculous/unforgettable ways people die (stabbing someone with an umbrella and opening it, plugging a guy's face into a car battery with jumper cables and his eyes explode, and of course, garbage day!). If you are a fan of ridiculous death scenes and absolutely horrible acting with little plot, this may be the best Christmas film for you.
It's worth noting that the DVD commentary opens with the director saying something like, "Hi, I'm Lee Harry and this is the worst piece of shit I have ever made."
The director tried to get Eric Freeman, who played Ricky, to participate in the commentary as well, but allegedly, he couldn't be tracked down. Which leads me to believe he is still out there checking off his naughty list. —Justin Dailey
