It is generally agreed upon that the first film in the Silent Night Deadly Night franchise is not just one of the most famous but also one of the most disputed examples of the Christmas horror film subgenre that has ever been produced. This low-budget horror series, which began with the film that served as the basis for the first film in the series, has reached its conclusion with the release of Silent Night Deadly Night 5. The end of Part 5 does not live up to the expectations that were established in the first part. The fifth and final portion is a movie titled “The Toy Maker,” and it is mostly aimed at younger audiences. If there hadn’t been a minute quantity of blood spilt in the middle of the movie, it would have been much simpler for the movie to be given a PG classification.
The crazy Santa storyline was eliminated from the Silent Night, Deadly Night series after the third installment in favor of two offshoot films. In contrast to the last installment, which we believed did a great job, this one did not. Around the thirty minute mark, the twist that the movie was building to was revealed, the special effects were below average, and the pace was excruciatingly slow. As this young man moved about and danced to the ethereal music, a significant portion of the running time was devoted to following him about. Not what one would anticipate from a scary movie for the holidays.
In the very first scene of Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker, a child accidentally causes the death of the stepfather by leaving a toy on a threshold. The boy’s mother notices that he is becoming increasingly anxious about unwrapping his presents, and she begins to worry about him. A nomad makes an unexpected discovery about a plot hatched by the proprietor of a nearby toy shop (Mickey Rooney, of all people! ), who is producing lethal toys with the intention of ruining Christmas for all children, boys and girls alike. The fact that the proprietor of the toy store and his son both have the names Joe Petto and Pino, respectively, should make the surprising and exaggerated turn of events at the movie’s end more clear.
Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker is entertaining to watch despite its cheap budget and the fact that it was made specifically for home video release. It is extremely foolish and ludicrous, yet in a humorous way that makes it entertaining. In addition to the killings that are certain to occur due to the nature of the horror genre, there is a sufficient amount of action to keep viewers interested. It was also to be expected that there would be a lot of situations that would make you laugh out loud, the most notable of which is when a drunk Mickey Rooney begins to mistreat his son (I know that seems strange, but you’ll understand what I mean after you see the film).
Did you know that Mickey Rooney makes an appearance in the fifth installment of the “Silent Night, Deadly Night” film series, despite the fact that he has publicly voiced his distaste of the first film in the series and said that the filmmakers behind that picture should be run out of town?
The movie is enjoyable to see, although it doesn’t always go according to plan. You should see it for the comedy, the visual effects, and the blood, but you shouldn’t expect the plot to be particularly exciting.
