Movie Meltdown - Episode 592 (For our Patreon "Horror Club")

Bust out the hot cocoa and Christmas cookies and settle in as we discuss the controversial holiday horror “classic” Silent Night, Deadly Night.

And while we try to decide just how to put “The Star Wars Holiday Special” into perspective for someone who hasn’t seen it, we also bring up… Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities, Wednesday, Glorious, that creepy old mother superior nun, retail fantasies, Linnea Quigley, command strips, a fork to the gut, creating Catholic weirdos, Utah, who’s gettin’ it on at an orphanage, Charles E. Sellier Jr., FAO Schwarz, RoboSanta, talking through a glory hole, Tim Burton movies, child trauma, Bob Vila, not watching Troll, Jenna Ortega, hunting a human, merchandising nightmares, sledders, hanging out with The Doors, a murderous snowman, a Lovecraftian entity, who unlocked the door, homicidal maniac dressed as Santa, Jack Frost, Phil Donahue, dancing on a giant piano, the God-like level of Dolly Parton and being distracted by the toys.

Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for the 1984 film “Silent Night, Deadly Night”, so go watch the movie before you listen.
