SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT (1984)
[VHS synopsis] Bearing the emotional scars of a young boy who has seen his mother and father brutally murdered by a savage killer in a Santa Clause costume, 18-year-old Billy explodes into a lethal frenzy – he’s asked to put on a Santa Clause suit himself to entertain the customers of the department store where he works. Reminded of the tragic events that have marked his life, Billy embarks on a killing rampage that is as ghastly – and controversial – as anything ever seen on film.
NEW YEAR'S EVIL (1980)
[VHS synopsis] A nationally televised New Year’s Eve punk rock party being celebrated in all four time zones sets an eerie stage for “murders at midnight” in this thriller with a twist ending.
