Violent Night Release Date, Cast, Plot & Everything We Know So Far

Here is everything we know about Violent Night.

If you’ve always thought that Christmas movies don’t have enough explosions and blood, then Violent Night might be for you. In this new movie from 2022, Santa goes up against a group of thieves to save one family’s Christmas.

Some people like to watch Hallmark Christmas movies or Netflix Christmas movies during the holidays, but Violent Night is here to give you something different. It’s a bit like the cult hit Anna and the Apocalypse or the classic Die Hard.

We’ll see if Violent Night is as good as those, but it was made by the same people who made John Wick, Nobody, Atomic Blonde, and Deadpool 2, so it has a good background.
