While the original film was about a tormented young boy whose parents are killed by a maniac dressed as Santa, who then grows up and assumes the role of murdery ol' St. Nick, the Silent Night remake shifts focus to a local Sherriff’s department as they track down a crazed killer dressed as Santa.
The movie stars Malcolm McDowell, Jaime King, Lisa Marie, Donal Logue and Brendan Fehr.
