That’s right, kids! On tap for you right now, naughty or nice, we have the very first stills from the UK remake of the obscure little film from the Seventies called Silent Night, Bloody Night!
From the Press Release
SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT: THE HOMECOMING has started filming in the UK. The project is a re-working of the 1974 Christmas themed slasher film ‘Silent Night, Bloody Night’ and is the second collaboration among North Bank Entertainment, Mad Science Films, and Independent Moving Pictures, the companies behind ‘Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection’. James Plumb is directing from a script he co-wrote with producer Andrew Jones. The film is being shot on location in Bridgend and Swansea, South Wales.
The cast includes a special appearance by the star of the original ‘Friday the 13th’, Adrienne King.
Producer Andrew Jones: “The original ‘Silent Night, Bloody Night’ was one of the earliest trailblazers in the slasher sub-genre yet has been largely forgotten. Our version will retain the central premise of the original, but we will be updating the story to a contemporary British setting. We’re aiming for genuine suspense and tension while also delivering creative kills using practical FX. We want to re-capture the vibe of the classic slasher films of the early 80s.The team behind this project are big fans of old school slasher movies so it’s a particular thrill to have horror icon Adrienne King involved. Adrienne deserves enormous credit for the continued support she gives to independent filmmaking.”
Principal photography on SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT: THE HOMECOMING wraps on May 11th.
