Sinceramente acho que não merecia tantas criticas mitas. Silent Night é muito bom e defende com garra o gênero "serial killer" nos filmes de terror, já que a maioria hoje em dia é mal produzido e bem fraco.

Silent Night é muito bom e defende com garra o gênero "serial killer" nos filmes de terror, já que a maioria hoje em dia é mal produzido e bem fraco. Silent Night é uma ótima produção com muito suspense, cenas bem feitas, e com uma pequena dose de comédia em alguns personagens, porém não deixando o terror de lado. Um dos melhores remakes já feitos que são melhores que o original. Um filme de terror completo. Nota 10. Expand

This isn’t a direct remake, in fact in only minimally gives subtle hints to the original movie while creating a completely independent film that is just as dark and sinister. It is also very entertaining, filled with an atmospheric despair and solemnity on what should be a lighthearted, joyful night. The story is filled with tragic characters on a clear path to self-destruction which adds to the fact that horrors are unfolding in this small town that go far beyond your basic killer on the loose. After all Santa slays the naughty and there is no better place to find naughty souls than a town filled with despair. There are times when the action seems a bit rushed when it comes to scenes with the actual killer at work that is probably intentional because it also creates an element of unease and question surrounding the goings-on within the town.

“Silent Night” creates a dark and intense story that doesn’t rely on black comedy to beg for acceptance from the audience. Instead of taking a tongue-in-cheek approach Miller has brought forth a very somber thriller that is suspenseful and serious. Something a lot of horror films shy from when it comes to slashers. The closest the film comes to comic relief is in Malcolm McDowell’s character who maintains a sterile, focused, Chuck Norris styled attitude about policing his town. The character is closer to the one he played in Rob Zombie’s “Halloween”. The blood and gore in this film isn’t over-the-top but Miller never shies away from the graphic kills or gory matter either. Everything about “Silent Night” is balanced and toned in a way that allows the story to draw you into the nightmare that plays out. There are a few scary moments where the element of surprise caught me off guard. I jumped back in my seat during a few scenes. This is a great slasher film that should not be considered a remake and should be an instant classic with the majority of horror fans.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. As targets for remakes go Silent Night Deadly Night is a pretty good choice. While fondly remembered by some as that film everyone was protesting way back when remaking the guilty pleasure few actually have seen seems a pretty sure thing. Of course, nothing can go sideways as quickly as an eighties horror remake (I’m looking your way Children of the Corn.) Silent Night avoids the various pitfalls of the genre to deliver a solid horror film with a good sense of humor and some great set pieces. Malcolm McDowell chews scenery admirably while Jamie King is solid as the straight woman lead. The film rises above the average with the chase of Cortney Palm ending in a Fargoesque way is so well done it simply raises the film well above the average. That scene along with some impressive stunt work throughout and a story that doesn’t get in the way of the fun creates a film that is simply better than it had to be. An entertaining time if Santa slashing various townspeople entertains you. Expand
