Here's Where You Can Stream Violent Night At Home

Universal's surprise Christmas hit "Violent Night" could be coming down the virtual chimneys of streamers everywhere — with it already being available to rent or purchase — despite still being in theaters across the country.

Viewers are lapping up the David Harbour-led epic like Eggnog. "The holidays may have come to a close, but Violent Night is still in theaters and streaming," wrote Twitter user @Cheebus. "Great movie to cackle along to with a big bag of popcorn. Careful with the candy canes, though." User @mylittletragedy, on January 1, said: "I bought it. No regrets." Another fan tweeted: "Just finished watching #ViolentNight and I loved it so much more than I thought I was gonna."

Released on December 2, Tommy Wirkola's action-packed spectacle sees a hulked-up Harbour doing his best Kris Kringle impression as a former Viking-turned-Santa who has to resort to his old savage ways after getting caught up in a home invasion. The film was made with a reported budget of $20M and has managed to make over $73M as of this writing (via Box Office Mojo). It opened with nearly $5M in ticket sales on opening night and a No.1 spot at the box office, dethroning "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" after a three-week run on top (via New York Post). Now, as a late Christmas present, Universal Pictures has decided to give viewers at home a chance to see Habour's big red guy decimating some thugs.

Violent Night available on all major VOD services, likely heading to Peacock in mid-January

Anyone looking to stream "Violent Night" can currently find the R-rated movie on all major digital retailers, such as Amazon or Apple TV. But it's gonna cost you.

Currently, "Violent Night" renters will be forced to cough up $19.99 to watch David Harbour's Santa do his thing on Christmas night. People interested in buying the movie will have to pay $24.99 for the 4K version if purchasing through apps like Prime Video and Vudu. Have a tight budget? Fear not. Universal is expected to release "Violent Night" for free on Peacock sometime in mid-January, with Business Insider expecting it to arrive around January 16. Most new films hit the streaming service about 45 days after they premiere in theaters.

In addition to slaying at the box office, "Violent Night" also managed to make critics and moviegoers surprisingly jolly, garnering an 88% Audience Score and 73% Tomatometer rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Reviewer Dolores Quintana wrote: "It's heartwarming violence, a very merry massacre, and holly jolly hammer time, but it also put me in the Christmas spirit." Times (UK) critic Kevin Maher said: "Die Hard meets Miracle on 34th Street. That's it. That's the pitch. And most of this blood-soaked action comedy neatly fulfils those expectations."
