Not many directors can claim two undisputed holiday classics, but Bob Clark did just that with A Christmas Story and Black Christmas. A favorite of Steve Martin’s, this proto-slasher delicately balances melodrama, a goofy sense of humor, and a palpable sense of dread up until its final chilling moments. Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toymaker, meanwhile,has the goofy sense of humor down. A California Christmas classic featuring one of the best bits of stunt casting in genre cinema, The Toymaker features Mickey Rooney commanding an army of killer toys designed by Screaming Mad George, as well as a life-size robot that just wants to be loved...or something like that.
