Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Is it as good as it could have been? Yes and no. Some parts work, others don’t. A few Christmas decos wouldn’t have busted the budget (they’re usually pretty cheap at the start of the year!) and a little less fidelity to the original might have been beneficial – because it’s only relevant to those viewers who watch both, and the film should be able to stand alone…” Cult films and the people who make them

“Not as gothic or Grand Guignol-esque as the original, Silent Night, Bloody Night: The Homecoming is at least a commendable updating of Theodore Gershuny’s film, complete with incredibly gory SFX…” Nerdly

“Overall, SNBN:TH is a great home-grown horror which makes good use of its isolated Welsh landscape and manages to bring a little respect to the ‘re-imagining’ table, thanks to filmmakers that obviously have so much respect for the source material.” UK Horror Scene

“The film looks incredibly cheap, which isn’t always a setback, but I wouldn’t be surprised to learn this was filmed over a weekend using a few local theater group players. That old nemesis of mine ‘the under-reactor-actor’ is present and accounted for.” Vegan Voorhees
