It is one of my favorite Chuck Norris movies. I plan to watch it again soon...I have always liked Ron Silver in this movie- and loved him in the movie The Entity too. So sad he died pretty young.

Talking about creepy movies earlier on on here,this was one movie that creeped me out as much as any horror movie ever did when I was younger.

It was the unstoppable killer in it,he was the stuff of nightmares.

Unless of cause you are chuck Norris and you never have nightmares!

I really enjoyed Silent Rage because it's such a good little B-film--cool idea, brisk pace, good acting, and...Chuck Norris!

The director was this guy Michael Miller, who should have had one heckuva studio career but didn't. He had directed another fantastic drive-in film, Jackson County Jail. And he did the watered-down TV-movie remake of that one a couple of years later. He then directed the long-shelved National Lampoon's Class Reunion. After that, it was all TV stuff until the end of his career. A shame. He really was an economical director with an excellent feel for action scenes.

I need to rewatch Silent Rage, hardly remember anything. I watched Jackson County Jail couple of years ago and it was good.
National Lampoon's Class Reunion gave mixed feelings and i don´t have the urge to check that out again very soon.
However, i do own four tv-films directed by Michael Miller. Silent Witness, Crime of Innocence, A Case of Deadly Force and Dangerous Passion. Only seen Dangerous Passion which was a decent effort.

I don't remember much about Class Reunion, other than John Hughes wrote it and that it was a farily dull effort. You have a good collection of Miller's work. [Smile]

I remember Silent Rage and 10 to Midnight (with Charles Bronson) use to play on HBO all the time , and me and my brother would set the alarm clock to get us up in the middle of the night, to sneak downstairs to watch these movies so my parents didn't freak out. The killer in Silent Rage- he just looks creepy- everything about him is creepy- and the music in it gives me the creeps...but it's so good. [Smile]

Watched Silent Rage and while it includes few good moments, it´s not among my favorite Norris flicks.
I think Stephen Furst´s comedy character is out of place here and the acting is somewhat clumsy all around.
The film would´ve been much better as a straight horror thriller.
