Silent Night, Bloody Night (1974) Wilford Butler returns home on Christmas Eve and his house had been turned into a mental institution for the criminally insane. But the day of his return, he is set on fire and dies. The towns people believe his death was an accident, and the institution-house is later closed down. Wilford leaves the house to his grandson Jeffrey. A few years later, Jeffrey finally decides to sell this grandfather's house, but the towns people including the Mayor have mixed feelings on keeping people away from the house, especially when a serial killer escapes from another institution and finds refuge there. The killer makes frightening phone calls and kills anyone coming near the house. But what does the killer have in common with what happened to Wilford Butler years before?

Movie Trivia:
  • Filmed in 1972 but not released until 1974.
  • Many of the cast of players were former "superstar" actor/personalities from Andy Warhol's "Factory" years: Star Mary Woronov (who was at one time married to director Theodore Gershuny), supporting players Ondine, Candy Darling, Kristen Steen, Tally Brown, Lewis Love, filmmaker Jack Smith, and artist Susan Rothenberg.
  • Star James Patterson ("Jeffery Butler") died of cancer soon after the film was originally completed in 1972.
  • John Carradine never utters a word in the film. His character's 'croaking' noises were dubbed in during post-production.
  • The films working title was 'Zora', strange since nothing or no one is referred to by that name in the film.
