There truly is a Christmas movie out there for every sort of film fan, so don’t fret if you think Santa left the horror aficionados off his list. Say it’s late, you don’t want to sleep just yet and you’re fed up with the usual holiday cheer. Look no further than the ultra-campy ’80s slasherflick “Silent Night, Deadly Night,” about a boy who is traumatized by watching a madman in a Santa suit murder his family, so he in turn grows up to go on a homicidal rampage as old Saint Nick. Pleasures don’t come much guiltier than this.
