On one hand, Anchor Bay understands B-movie fans very well. Silent Night could be very good. On the other hand, Miller did Scream of the Banshee and The Aggression Scale. Neither was a strong horror movie. Then, King (My Bloody Valentine), Logue (Blade), and Kennedy (Scream) have all done some noted horror. But, Anchor Bay might just want them to add legitimacy to this project.

I think it'll suck if they take the focus off Santa.

Jaime King is always nice.
