New York, N.Y., November 18, 2013 - Screenvision, a national cinema advertising leader, has teamed up with Brainstorm Media to give horror fans one last shriek this holiday season with showings of the Fangoria Presents screening of the 80's classic, Silent Night, Deadly Night. This uniquely chilling film, which has achieved cult status among horror fans, will be coming to theaters across the nation from December 4th - December 18th.
"We're excited to be teaming up with Brainstorm Media to bring such a cult favorite to horror fans in theaters nationwide," says Darryl Schaffer, Screenvision's Executive Vice President, Operations & Exhibitor Relations.
"We enjoy working with Screenvision. They've already locked in over 200 screens for this film and are working closely with us and the magazine to get the word out. Silent Night has never been seen in HD until now -- and there's no better place to see it than in a theater," says Meyer Shwarzstein, Founder of Brainstorm Media.
Charles E Sellier Jr.'s 1984 holiday cult horror classic tells the tale of Billy Chapmen, orphaned at five after witnessing the murder of his parents at the hands of a Santa suit-clad madman on Christmas Eve. Now eighteen and out of the brutal grip of orphanage nuns, Billy is forced to confront his greatest fear, sending him on a rampage, leaving a crimson trail in the snow behind him. This Fangoria Presents event, in conjunction with Screenvision, delivers this seasonal slasher essential in a stunning new HD transfer for the ultimate experience in ho-ho-horror!
"I'm bursting with blood-splattered bliss at the idea of fans being able to see this classic Christmas slasher on the big screen after all these years. This is the original "bad santa" shocker and whether seeing it for the first time or the fifteenth time, SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT is an absolute blast to behold. No serious horror movie lover should miss the chance to experience this collectively, in a packed theatre," says Chris Alexander, editor-in-chief of FANGORIA magazine.
