Presenting The Real Santa Claus

Deadly Movies Icons | Richard N Gladstein

If you don’t like Richard Gladstein then you don’t like Christmas. Having worked as Producer and/or Executive Producer on movies such as Finding Neverland (2004), The Bourne Identity (2002), The Cider House Rules (1999), Pulp Fiction (1994) is known to bring a smile of satisfaction to Richard Gladstein’s round face. But what really fills him with festive pride is his career circa 1989-1991.., he was a very good boy those years. 1989 would see Glado produce and act in Silent Night Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out! as ‘detective’. 1990 would see a promotion to writing, producing, and staring in Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation as ‘Woody’. Whilst 1991 would see Glado retiring from the writers desk and returning to what he knows best, the old producer/actor role in Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker as ‘Driver Dad’. Indulge me, if you would, in a little yuletide poetry: Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for Richard Gladstein who was busy penning a way to string out the Silent Night, Deadly Night franchise for as long as possible without worrying too much about that old chestnut, continuity.

    I've actually seen one of the Silent Night, Deadly Night movies But for the life of me cannot remember which one. It's the one with the Garbage day scene. I did not about this guy. I sure do now.

    Im a huge fan of the first one, I actually think its one of the best Christmas HOrror films out there. I tried watching part 2, but it was just a rehash of the first film. Never saw the other sequels, they worth it?

  3. DeadlyMovies says:

    Well they are worth it if you are determined to watch 'Christmas' based horror films, but the link to Christmas gets very tenuous as the series progresses
