Silent Night, Bloody Night Remake Announced

I’m sorry guys, I hate to be the bearer of remakes, but we have yet another one on our hands and this one is Silent Night, Bloody Night and will be making its way out of the UK.

The updated version or should I say remake will be titled, Silent Night, Bloody Night: The Homecoming which is planned to begin filming in March/April 2012 in South Wales.

“SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT: THE HOMECOMING will be a modern updating of the original story, but we also want to re-capture the atmosphere of the slasher films from the 1970s and 80s. There will be a keen focus on practical FX, genuine suspense, and compelling storytelling. This could be one of the rare cases when a new version of a classic actually benefits the original film. We hope that by bringing SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT: THE HOMECOMING to a modern audience, they will also seek out the 1974 film and appreciate its importance in horror cinema history.”

More information regarding a director and the cast is expected to be announced in January and February.
