Apparently, legendary Hollywood star Mickey Rooney was very upset about the destruction of everyone’s favored bearded icon in (the now classic) 1984 Santa slasher, Silent Night, Deadly Night.
But, obviously not upset enough to turn down the role of an evil toy maker named Joe Petto in Silent Night, Deadly Night‘s final installment in 1991, subtitled The Toymaker. Here, Rooney causes some gnarly mayhem while dressed in a Santa suit much like the one that Robert Brian Wilson’s Billy donned to off errant teens in the original film.
Hmm…Hope you like some Hollywood irony with your eggnog this Christmas!
Happy Holidays and…SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan
