Silent Night Deadly Night IV: Initiation (1990)
"If I Die Before I Wake... Thank You."
Welcome back for another episode of the Dead Air Horror & Genre Podcast's Silent Night Deadly Night Retrospective Podcast Series; brought to you by GenreWatch, The Liberal Dead, and Doc Terror! In this episode, Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) is joined by co-host James (@DrJimmyTerror) to tackle 1990's Direct-To-Video mindfuck of a "sequel" Silent Night Deadly Night IV: Initiation; aka the one that probably wasn't a Silent Night Deadly Night movie.
What the hell is Maude Adams doing in the movie? Did Brian Yuzna actually intend this to be a Silent Night Deadly Night film? How fucking creepy is Clint Howard? And more importantly, where the hell is the snow?
Find the answers to these questions here - along with talk of the film's production history, themes and plot points, reception, and its place in the franchise. As always, the guys give you a straight shot on whether or not it's worth your time and/or money.
Come for the discussion, but stick around for Clint Howard's bald spot, animatronic maggots, and Wiccan roofies.
If you are looking to watch the film, or any of the others in the series, you can help support the show by Purchasing or Renting it from Amazon.
