CONTEST CLOSED! In the UK? Win a Copy of Silent Night, Deadly Night on DVD!





It’s competition time here at Dread Central for our beloved UK readers, and courtesy of the ultra-fine folks at Arrow Video and The Associates we have THREE copies of the brand new Silent Night, Deadly Night DVD to give away. Whether you’re in for some psycho-Santa entertainment yourself or are looking for that top shocking stocking filler this Christmas for the horror fan in your life, we’ve got just what you need.

In case you haven’t heard of it, the plot of Silent Night, Deadly Night is as follows:

After witnessing the killing of his father and the rape and murder of his mother at the hands of a psycho in a Santa suit, young Billy Chapman, along with his infant brother Ricky, is sent to be raised at St. Mary's Orphanage, an institution run by a tyrannical and abusive Mother Superior. Billy's earlier tragic experience has already left him deeply scarred mentally, with a pathological fear of Santa Claus and a firm belief that sex is an evil act that must be punished – emotional problems that the nuns do nothing about except to reinforce.

Ten years later, and free of the shackles of the orphanage, 18-year-old Billy finds himself working at a local toy store as Christmas approaches. Things are going fine until the store Santa takes ill and Billy is forced to step in and don the red and white suit. He manages to get through the final day at work before the holidays, but an incident at the store employees' Christmas celebrations that evening brings back terrifying memories in Billy, initiating a bloody killing spree in which this now psychotic Santa sets out to ‘punish the naughty'.

This DVD marks the first ever official uncut release of the film in the UK (having been caught in the furor at the height of the Video Nasty era) and includes the following Special Features:

• Unrated trailer
• Audio interview with director Charles E. Sellier, Jr.
• Poster
• Booklet including “Deadly Director: Charles Sellier Interviewed by Calum Waddell”
• “Silent Night, Sex Night: The Slice and Times of Linnea Quigley”

Also, check out that artwork below. One word...awesome!

Question: Did the Silent Night, Deadly Night 3/4/5 Compilation come out yet? I haven't seen it in any stores.

Yep, it's out. Doesn't seem to be a whole load of stock available though, as most retailers have a waiting time on orders. If you're so inclined you can find it through our very own EvilShop!
