For our holiday presentation of “a feature and a half” we chose to present the notorious 1984 Christmas slasher “Silent Night, Deadly Night”, plus the second half of “Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2” (and since part 2 is comprised of almost 50% flashbacks from the first film, you really only need to see the second half anyway!) Calling our mash-up “Silent Night, Deadly Night 1.4”, we enlisted James Rheem Davis to create a poster worthy of this Yuletide extravaganza. Setting out to capture the true essence of these films, James came back with a creation that was gory, sleazy and loaded with lewd cheekiness. So in other words, he absolutely NAILED it!
Drawing inspiration from the original Siskel & Ebert reviews, James incorporated authentic quotes from noted critics absolutely trashing the film. Coupled with imagery that the original producers probably wish they could have included in their original ad campaign, this piece even manages to incorporate an homage to the most famous sequence in the sequel as well.
