Michael Hickey

Michael Hickey, originally of Manhasset, New York, is a screenwriter, best known for writing the screenplay for the horror film Silent Night, Deadly Night. Hickey's controversial screenplay for the film focused on a serial killer who, disguised as Santa Claus, takes the lyric "He knows if you've been bad or good so be good, for goodness sake" rather too literally. Mr. Hickey also authored the stage play "Murrow," about the life of newscaster Edward R. Murrow, which premiered at the Bristol Riverside Theater in Bucks County, PA; the play appeared in New York under the title "A Question of Loyalty" in 1998. Mr. Hickey lives in Palm Springs, CA.
