In terms of dark comedy, this is pretty pitch black, given that even the children are told they’ll be dead by the morning, and the end of the trailer clearly shows there’s plenty of drama in between the potato-rationing jokes. Still, the British do “keep calm and carry on even in the face of armageddon” humor exceedingly well, and this really is an amazing cast which includes Knightley, A Discovery of Witches’ Matthew Goode, Jojo Rabbit star Roman Griffin Davis, Malignant’s Annabelle Wallis, The King’s Lily-Rose Depp, Black Mirror: San Junipero’s Ṣọpé Dìrísù, The Good Place’s Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Into the Woods’ Lucy Punch, Rufus Jones, Trudie Styler, and more. I wouldn’t call them a “killer” cast, though, just because that’s a lazy pun for a movie about people dying to make. I have some standards.
Silent Night will premiere in theaters and on-demand exclusively on AMC+ on Friday, December 3.
