Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker (1991)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker (1991) A young boy, Derek, hears a knock on his door and goes to answer it. There's a present on he porch with a note, "Don't open until Christmas". His father wakes up and yells at him for making noise and, furious at being woken up, tells him to go upstairs. Then, he proceeds to open the package, which is a weird Santa toy. It strangles him, while his son watches from the stairs, and he falls onto a fireplace poker. Of course, the kid is traumatized.

To make him feel better, his mother takes him to a toy store run by an old guy, Joe Petto (Mickey Rooney). And they're scared by Joe's weird teenaged son, Pino, who is wearing a monster mask he made. Joe screams at his son after they leave and we see it's an abusive relationship.

There's also the story of a young man, Noah, who suspects foul play with the toys--so he visits Petto's shop. He then takes the toys back to his hotel room and takes them apart, with no luck of finding anything suspicious. But he hasn't paid for that week's rent and the manager comes around, demanding payment. He promises cash in the morning--and gives the guy a toy for his son. It's a "Larry the Larvae" remote-controlled toy. Unfortunately, this isn't a toy he'd checked and it comes alive and burrows into the guy's neck while he's driving. That night, Noah sneaks into Petto's store and snoops around. He comes across a photo of Joe and his son from 1970--and Pino looks exactly the same. He has not aged a day.

Then, Pino break's into Derek and his mother's house, going through their things. They come home and see him. She immediately goes to Petto and he promises it won't happen again. When she leaves he's pissed--and goes to confront Pino, who is kept in a room in the basement. This is when Pino snaps...

This is my favorite film of the SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT franchise, primarily because it's a twisted horror version of PINOCCHIO.
