"Filthy Billy, I know what you did nasty Billy!"

If you thought A Christmas Story was the only Christmas classic on director Bob Clark's résumé, think again.

Black Christmas (1974)

I thought this movie, for whatever reason, would be better than it was. Even allowing for the year it was made, it wasn't terribly good. The acting was not great, and the story sucked. Not sure that I want to even bother with the remake after watching this one, which had drunken college girls allowing children to drink alcohol in it, among all the rest of the bad storyline.

It's time for Christmas break, and the sorority sisters make plans for the holiday, but the strange anonymous phone calls are beginning to put them on edge. When Clare disappears, they contact the police, who don't express much concern. Meanwhile Jess is planning to get an abortion, but boyfriend Peter is very much against it. The police finally begin to get concerned when a 13-year-old girl is found dead in the park. They set up a wiretap to the sorority house, but will they be in time to prevent a sorority girl attrition problem?
