Just got a press release e-mail from Lionsgate announcing the awesome news that the long awaited (at least by me) Silent Night, Deadly Night Box Set - containing SNDN 3, 4 & 5 - will hit the streets December 1st of this year, just in time for Christmas! These films have never before been released on DVD and though I haven't actually seen any of them yet, I love the first two Silent Night flicks (and for that matter all Christmas horror movies, no matter how bad they are) and have been dying to check these later sequels out for some time now. Here's the official press release!
Lionsgate brings three films from the Silent Night Deadly Night franchise - Silent Night Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out, Silent Night Deadly Night 4: Initiation and Silent Night Deadly Night 5: The Toymaker - to DVD for the first time ever. Featured in one amaray DVD case with O-card packaging, the Silent Night Deadly Night Box Set is the perfect holiday gift for any horror fan!
The films include:
'Silent Night Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out' Synopsis:
Ricky Caldwell, the notorious "Killer Santa Claus," awakens from a six year coma after being kept alive on life-support by a slightly crazed doctor experimenting with ESP and other special abilities. Ricky spies Laura, a young, clairvoyant blind woman who is traveling with her brother and his girlfriend to their grandmother's house for Christmas Eve. When Ricky decides to go after her, he leaves a trail of dead bodies in his wake.
'Silent Night Deadly Night 4: Initiation' Synopsis:
A female reporter is investigating the death of a woman who, on fire, leapt off of a building to her death. The investigation leads her to discover the existence of a strange cult. The cult, dedicated to the Egyptian god Isis, now wants her as their new queen.
'Silent Night Deadly Night 5: The Toymaker' Synopsis:
A young boy sees his father killed by a toy that was anonymously delivered to his house. After that, he is too traumatized to speak and his mother must deal with both him and the loss of her husband. Meanwhile, a toy maker named Joe Peto (Mickey Rooney) builds some suspicious-looking products while a mysterious man creeps around both the toy store and the boy's house...but who is responsible for the killer toys?
Pricing: DVD $19.98 (3-Disc Set)
Thank you, Lionsgate! Can't wait to watch all five SNDN's back to back come this December! Anyone else excited about this news?
