Silent Night is a movie that sticks with you. And while the subject matter may be dark, it is so infused with a dark humor that provides an unexpected levity and walks a line that manages to keep it from ever veering off into too-bleak-to-be-enjoyable territory. "A couple invite their closest friends to join their family for Christmas dinner at their idyllic home in the English countryside. As the group comes together, it feels like old times — but behind all of the laughter and merriment, something isn't quite right. The world outside is facing impending doom."
While the premise sounds dismal, (it is the apocalypse after all), it is approached in such a way that is anything but. We sat down with Silent Night star Annabelle Wallis and writer/director Camille Griffin to chat about toeing that line, maintaining that balance, working with an incredible ensemble cast, and the best Christmas songs.
Silent Night immediately joined the ranks of my top must-watch holiday horror and is now playing in theaters and available on AMC+. Click below to stream now:
