Silent Night, Deadly Night Part II

id the first "Silent Night....." really make enough money to warrant 4 more sequels? I remember reading that it was picketed at theaters, but still made no money. That must explain why the second installment was made. The first one made no money, but the name got out, so hey, why not fill part 2 with about 45 minutes of part one again? Brilliance.
On to the movie itself. Some unknown actor playing Ricky (Billy's brother from the first) is in an institution recalling events from the first film. That kills the first half of the movie pretty quickly. Halfway through the analysis, Ricky loses his mind and goes on a similar killing spree to the first. Some choice scenes include Ricky thrusting an umbrella through a guys chest and opening it, and a guy getting electrocuted when his teeth are hooked up to a set of jumper cables. Where the electric current is running in this man's mouth, causing his head to explode, is unknown.
You can't possibly ask for worst acting than this, especially Ricky, who probably didn't hit it big after this one. The redeeming quality from this is in a movie theater, where Ricky takes a girl on a date(the original "Silent Night..." is playing). He's pretty shy, and two guys in the back notice this. One exclaims "Hey studly! Go ahead and kiss her! Ha, I knew it. Faggot!" He is shot shortly thereafter. Oh yeah, and a nun gets decapitated. This all ties in somehow with Christmas.
If you never saw the first one, rent this instead, because you get most of the good stuff from that, plus an even worse sequel. Please don't send any death threats to me for the whole-hearted recommendation, this is as bad as it gets.
