SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 4: INITIATION Pros: Very weird, with some impressive special effects Cons: Acting is pretty rough across the board; screenplay seems confused Director Brian Yuzna’s Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation, made for video in 1990, begins with an unknown woman falling from the top of a building while completely alight. This event
SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 3: BETTER WATCH OUT! Pros: Technically capable and hey – it’s somewhat consistent with the earlier series entries Cons: Acting; script; lack of tension; miserable as a horror flick The second sequel to the highly controversial and surprisingly decent ‘80s slasher dealing with a killer Santa Claus, 1989’s Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better
SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT PART 2 Pros: I laughed quite a bit; Eric Freeman’s acting ability is really something Cons: So many…oh so many… In the annals of truly pathetic horror movies, a few titles rise above the rest.

The MANSON Media Collection which includes the book “Death to Pigs” the 1973 MANSON on DVD and “Inside the MANSON Gang” on DVD Pros: Actual footage of the Manson Gang right after the murders.

Fons Porter Directional Arrow Pin Assortment Pros: sharp pins, directional arrow flat arrow heads, reusable, come in a decorative tin Cons: expensive compared to regular pins If you sew or do projects that require you keep track of direction … then these Fons Porter Directional Arrow Pins are a handy tool. I used to pin pieces of
EATEN ALIVE on Discovery Channel Pros: Pretty intense jungle hunt, good insight into snake anatomy and behavior, finale is kinda crazy Cons: The misleading ad campaign apparently pissed some people on the internet off.

Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse – Model 3500 Pros: one AA battery included, on/off switch, programmable buttons, a magnifying feature Cons: sometimes vertical scrolling jumps during use I have been using this Microsoft Wireless Mouse for over four years.
