Just in time for the holidays, SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT 2: REVIVAL has started carving up the home-video scene. We’ve got some exclusive photos of the Christmas mayhem to share, along with the trailer and release info.
Retrosploitation has unleashed SILENT NIGHT 2, a New Wave Independent Pictures production we first told you about here, on DVD, digital and special-edition VHS (details below). A direct sequel to Theodore Gershuny’s 1974 film starring John Carradine and Mary Woronov, it was directed by Dustin Ferguson, written by John Klyza and stars Julia Farrell, Luc Bernier, Jennifer Runyon Corman (who has experience with Yuletide mayhem from 1980’s TO ALL A GOODNIGHT) and indie-horror regular Jeff Dylan Graham. The synopsis: “After a death in the family, siblings Angelica [Farrell] and James Zacherly [Bernier] travel to the small town of East Willard on Christmas Eve to pay their respects. They stay at a homey bed and breakfast where they learn the legend of Black Peter, Santa Claus’ vengeful brother. But when they find the lost journal of Jeffrey Butler, they discover the town has its own sordid history—one more rooted in reality.
“When the dark reflection of St. Nicholas emerges and begins to punish the eccentric townsfolk, the visitors find themselves in the middle of the mystery. Who is doing the deeds? Is Black Peter real? Or is the truth closer to home? If they don’t find out and put a stop to it, Christmas Day will turn to Garbage Day while the bodies pile up in a bloody heap.”
SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT 2: REVIVAL can be purchased or rented at Amazon.com, and the Limited Edition Double Feature VHS, also containing special features and the original ’74 film, is available at Retrosploitation’s official website. See the trailer below the photos.
