Thank God For Grandpa Chapman From ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night’ (1984)

There have been many scene stealers throughout the history of cinema. Daniel Day Lewis in Gangs Of New York.   Anthony Hopkins in Silence Of The Lambs.  And of course, the crazy nursing home Grandpa from Silent Night Deadly Night.  And what Christmas Eve would be complete without Grandpa Chapman’s warning to a young Billy Chapman about Santa Claus?

Yeah.  F*ck hearing Twas The Night Before Christmas…..I’ll take the old man’s bat shit crazy rant over that any day.  So, Merry Christmas Eve everybody and just remember to heed Grandpa Chapman’s words of wisdom this season.  If you see Santa Claus, you better run.  If you’ve been naughty, you better run faster.  And if you see Grandpa Chapman, I’d keep young kids away from him for obvious reasons.
