Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out!

Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out!

Monte Hellman (1989)



Our Score
Another pointless slasher film, made even more depressing by the fact it's directed by one-time cult kingpin Monte Hellman (Two Lane Blacktop, Cockfighter, The Shooting). Although a marginal improvement over the second in the once-controversial Santa Claus series, this tedious ramble lacks suspense, energy or even the inventive murder methods which usually provide some incentive to stay awake. The Part 2 killer Ricky (Bill Moseley) is restored to life by mad scientist Richard Beymer on Christmas Eve and goes on a murder spree - slaughtering anyone who reminds him of the festive season or wears red. Only this time he's psychically linked to blind girl Samantha Scully and his brain is visible under a plexi-glass dome! Better but not by much. Two more sequels followed.
