->''He's home... but he's not alone.''

'''''Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker''''' is a 1991 horror film. Loosely connected to the previous film, this one gets more into the holiday spirit, featuring [[LivingToys toys that kill]].

After the mysterious death of her husband, a woman, her son, and her former lover begin investigating the toys produced by an enigmatic toymaker named [[MeaningfulName Joe Petto and his son Pino]]. Mickey Rooney portrays Joe, despite being one of the most vocal haters of the original film; he probably [[RockBottom needed]] [[MoneyDearBoy the work]] and plays a mean, scary drunk surprisingly well.

!!This film has the examples of:

* AbusiveParents: Joe Petto has a habit of smacking his son Pino around when he's drunk, [[spoiler:and occasionally killing him and rebuilding him later]].
* AnAxeToGrind: Noah and Sarah use one to attack Pino.
* ContinuityNod: Kim from ''Initiation'' briefly appears and mentions having a bad experience the previous year.
* DeathBySex: Meredith and Buck (though the former survives the toy attack).
* DropTheHammer: Pino tries to kill Noah with one.
* EveryCarIsAPinto: A car that's not even going very fast flips over and explodes spectacularly.
* EyeScream: A larva toy crawls into a guy's mouth and bursts out of his eye while he's driving.
* GrievousBottleyHarm: Drunk Joe smashes his son Pino with a bottle.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Sarah cuts Pino in half with an axe. [[spoiler:Being a robot, he still keeps coming]].
* InfantImmortality: Lonnie puts on a pair of rigged roller skates which rocket him full speed into a car. At first it looks like he died, but it turns out he's just horribly mangled...
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Tom falls onto a fireplace poker (which goes through his face and out the back of his head) while being choked by the Santa toy.
* [[spoiler:JustAMachine]]: Joe Petto beats Pino, claiming he could never love him like a real son. [[spoiler:At the end of the movie, the barely-functioning Pino grabs Sarah's leg, and she starts frantically stomping his head into bits and pieces of machinery. She's stopped by her son Derek, who says "It's just a toy, mommy."]]
* LivingToys: Pino's creations.
* MarketBasedTitle: ''The Toy Maker'' had the "Silent Night, Deadly Night" part dropped from its name when it was released internationally.
* MeaningfulName: Joe Petto and Pino.
* MyLittlePanzer: The assortment of toys that is unleashed upon Buck and Meredith.
* ParkingGarage: A suspenseful moment is had in the parking garage as Sarah walks in there and keeps hearing noises... but then she meets Noah, who is revealed be a good guy all along.
* PrimalScene: Used in the beginning.
* [[spoiler:RoboticReveal: Pino reveals he was created by Joe [[ReplacementGoldfish to replace his dead son]].]]
* ShoutOut: The tagline references ''HomeAlone'', another Christmas-centric film released in the same year.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The trailer spoils the [[spoiler:RoboticReveal]].
* UnexplainedRecovery: Creator/ClintHoward's Ricky obviously dies in ''Initiation'', yet returns briefly as a mall Santa (though this could be an instance of NamesTheSame).
