Silent Night Deadly Night III: Better Watch Out! (1989)
"When Your Nightmare Ends, The Real Terror Begins!"
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-hosts James (@DrJimmyTerror) and Shawn (@TheLiberalDead) to tackle 1987's infamous kind-of-sequel Silent Night Deadly Night III: Better Watch Out!; aka the one where Ricky has a glass dome and nothing makes sense.
Is this the one that James hates with a passion? How much crack were the filmmakers smoking when they came up with this? What does the movie have in common with Reservoir Dogs and Robocop? Where the hell is Santa Claus? Is that Kenny-Fucking-G?
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 the coma mind-rape, dead grandmas, and Robert Culp.
