Box Office





silent night bloody night 1972The film that almost buried and pass completely unnoticed. The release of the American show Elvira's Movie Maccabre somewhere in the middle of 80s and since then sustains a small circle of supporters. Also considered one of the earliest slasher or at least slasheroeidi along with "Black Christmas" (1974) and from this point of view has a special historical value.

Let's leave aside the historical data and let's move on purely cinematic. Remarkable names of John Carradine, Patrick O ' Neil and cult actress Mary Woronov prepare us for great things. But as happens many times in such cases, the result is lower than expected even fans roil of cult horror. Isn't that the actors did not respond to their work – although what to do when psellizei not Carradine a single word throughout the movie;-but more faulty script and the slow pace of condemning the film. Special scenario seems undecided and procheirogrammeno being the main negative factor of "Silent Night, Bloody Night".

Horror Trivia

The film was released as "Dark Night of the Full Moon" and re-released in 1981 as "Death House". The makes title that eventually was not retained was the bizarre "Zora".

The narrative style that follows the film doesn't have the sophisticated structure that needed to be enraptured viewers and the whole venture seem despite. So it only remains for us the genuine atmosphere of horror, dark photo and the mystery about the identity of the murderer to entertain us something which fortunately happens to a certain extent. But not enough to make the ' Silent Night, Bloody Night "good movie. Gore is minimal so if you prefer bloody horror film, surely this is not for you, despite the contradictory-as for the gore-title.

Dark photo, authentic atmosphere of terror, even elemental mystery.


Problematic scenario with backsliding, any frivolity and lack of good ideas. Also the annoyingly slow pace of the film.
