Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 (1987)

dir. Lee Harry

The sheer audacity of this film has to be seen to be believed. Sure, it does the generic thing of arbitrarily centring the film around the brother of the original protagonist, who did basically nothing in Silent Night, Deadly Night. That’s fine, that’s fair. No, the absolutely shameless thing this sequel does is purport to be an 88-minute film, only for its audience to then realise that 40 of those 88 minutes are just clips from the first film. It’s actually incredible how brazen it is. Hopefully nobody in 1987 was forced to pay full-price for this half-film. On the plus side, though, it’s this movie that introduced the “GARBAGE DAY!” guy to the world. So at least there’s that!
