Joining them will be “Silent Night, Deadly Night: The Game” creator, Anthony Masi. All special guests will be available after the panel to autograph any purchased merchandise at no additional cost.

“Silent Night, Deadly Night” was originally released in 1984 and sparked a lot of controversy. The film outperformed “A Nightmare on Elm Street” at the box office during their same opening weekend but was pulled from cinemas after one week due to its controversial promotional material and graphic violence. Since then, viewing it during the holiday season has become a tradition for many horror movie fans.

“Both Scott Schneid and I are thrilled that the movie has become so popular and an annual tradition through the years,” says Whitehead. “The fans of ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night’ have made it happen, and we love that.”

“Creating this game became an obsession of mine, and I spent countless hours developing, testing and refining every little detail,” says Masi. “It was designed around the plot of the movie and our goal was to invoke a mid-80s retro gameplay feel. While simple to play, it’s not easy. It’s an entirely new way to experience ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night’ and the artists at Fright Rags turned it into an absolutely gorgeous collectible.”

This event will be produced under DePaoli’s depaolEVENTS label and is being sponsored by Fright Rags horror apparel.
