    I believe they are using these special Blu-rays for HD Theatrical screenings only; beginning Dec 4th?

    Not heard anything about a regular Blu-ray release of SNDN yet.

    Yes, those are for the theatrical screenings this December.

    It's actually playing near me, which is surprising because we usually don't get anything like this.

    I'm wondering if it is the uncut version though? Considering it'll be in theaters, I'm assuming it's R-rated.

    What a waste, this needs to be out on blu-ray and not screening in a few select cinemas.

    Why is such a waste of time to release this in theaters?

    And most of the times, screenings predate a home release. Did you actually think they would spent money on a conversion just for a few theatrical releases?

    Thing is though, it might be the R-rated version only, especially if it is playing in theaters.

    They might not have a hi-def source for the uncut material. Remember the Anchor Bay DVD? If they do, great! I'm sure we'll see it on blu-ray next December. If not... hard to say. And if Anchor Bay still holds the rights, then who knows.

    I guess we'll see...

    I would think if they went to the trouble to do it up like this, they would release it on blu ray (although I would think they would release the blu in time for holiday viewing, so they will probably miss the boat this year...maybe by next christmas season?)

    According to the press release, this is the uncut version that will be playing;

    FANGORIA, together with Screenvision and Brainstorm Media, are thrilled to announce the re-release of the controversial, ultra-bloody anti-Holiday slasher favorite SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, opening wide across the country in theaters everywhere!

    Released in 1984 to outrage and parental paranoia, director Charles Sellier’s killer Kris Kringle creeper tells the tale of a tot who, on Christmas Eve 1974, sees mommy kissing Santa’s axe as a lunatic invades their home and murders his family. Growing up in an abusive Catholic orphanage, the poor put-upon lad grows up to be a similar psycho in a Santa suit and goes on a bloody rampage. The film will be fully uncut and re-mastered, better to see every inch of those deer antlers penetrate poor Linnea Quigley’s breastplate.

    SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT will open on December 4th running to December 17th across the country, a presentation of FANGORIA Films and Brainstorm Media.


    Although the poster does have the "R" rating at the bottom, who knows if that's just for show or what the deal is really? Confusing to say the least.

    These peeps who are just giving out these blu rays are not replying. I guess only the hispters are getting their hands on these.

    They aren't just giving out/selling those Blu-rays, they are being sent out to the theatres for booked screenings. The image from the first post, from what I recall, is from one of the projectionists who I'm guessing had taken it home to test it out.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they're expected to return the discs when their theatrical obligations have ended.

    If you can find a projectionist with bluer balls than grey matter you might be able to get a copy.

    Honestly though it's child's play to make a copy of it. Maybe a few frames are water marked but only if it's BD-R would I expect that possibility.

    I just went and saw this tonight and while it was great to see on the big screen it was definitely the CUT VERSION. No antlers coming through Linnea's breast plate and no box cuter ripping up Pam's sternum in the stock room. Oh well. The movie did look good with a healthy amount of grain and detail. One very annoying thing, however, was there was way too much high end in the audio with very little bass. I'm not sure how much control the movie operator had over this but it was so ear piercing in certain scenes I almost went to see if it could be adjusted. There was a whopping 8 people in the theater.

    I went to a showing tonight. As stated above, it was the R-rated version and sounded like shit, but it was still cool to see on the big screen. Some pics I took:
