Films: Silent Night Deadly Night (1984), Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2 (1987), Silent Night Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out! (1989)
Alias: Billy and Ricky Chapman
Location: Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of average humans.
Summary: Behold, two of the most famous "evil santas" in film. These guys may have not been the first, not by a long shot, but they sure did set the standard for later endeavors.
History: Billy Chapman's life...sucked. He watched as his parents got murdered by a robber in a Santa suit, got sent to an orphanage run by the vindictive Mother Superior, had to work at a mall wearing Saint Nick's getup, and just when he got used to that, he witnessed a rape. From there, he decided to destroy anyone that he deemed as naughty. His little brother Ricky would follow in his footsteps...
Notable Kills: With Billy, it's the "death by reindeer antler impalement". For Ricky...all together now..."GARBAGE DAY!".
Final Fate: Billy is shot in the back, while Ricky gets shot up by cops just moments after killing Mother Superior years later. However, Ricky doesn't stay dead, as he awakens from a coma to kill again and stalk a psychic...only to impale himself on a wooden pike, his legacy reduced to occasional visions.
Powers/Abilities: Ricky is rather strong for someone of his age, capable of lifting a man with ease.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-They may only target those they deem naughty, but they're on two opposite ends of the insanity spectrum. Billy is cold and calculating, while Ricky teeters between the same and madcap hamminess at the sight of his dying victims.
Trivia: -Despite hardly being the first killer Santa film, this one garnered public outrage from just about everyone, particularly Siskel and Ebert, who outright told the filmmakers that they ought to be ashamed. It has now become a cult classic, especially its sequel.
-Ricky was played by Bill Mosely, who seemed to have a knack for starring in cult films, such as "The Devil's Rejects" and "House of 1,000 Corpses".
