A real slasher artefact

"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. Almost a decade before delivering the saga of young Ralphie and his want for a BB gun, Clark directed 1974's Black Christmas; a Yuletide-themed horror flick which became one of the most influential slashers of the 1970s. Looking back on it ... read more

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.

Director Bob Clark seems preoccupied with the yuletide as his two most beloved creations, this film and A Christmas Story, examine the holiday through vastly different prisms. A Christmas Story is delightful as it alternates between the saccharine undertones of nostalgia and spiky bits of humor, yet it’s an understandable piece of pop culture ephemera for the seasonal period.

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?

Fictional Places You Don’t Want To Visit (205 movies items)

"Unnamed sorority house, Toronto, Ontario It’s located on a fairly hidden wraparound street just off of the historic intersection of Saint Clair and Avenue Road in Toronto. Why you wouldn’t want to visit: There is a uncaught serial killer, in the attic. “It’s me. Billy.”"

"15.1. Blu-ray Hippasen tunkkainen proto slasher sisältää todella hienoa murhaajan pov-kuvaa ja häiritsevää ääntelyä (ja John Saxonin). Muuten ei erityisen kiinnostava olekaan. Loppukin olisi varmaan toiminut paremmin ilman nukahtamista. Hommasin espanjalaisen BD:n, koska siinä oli sekä kansien että blu-ray.comin mukaan B-alueelle harvinaiset tekstit englanniksi, mutta eipä ollu. Parempi laatu ja tekstit jo varmaan tekisivät ihmeitä itsessään."

"24.12. Jouluaaton ensimmäiseksi elokuvaksi valikoitui klassikkoasemaan noussut proto-slasher. Lajityyppinsä edustajana se ei kiinnostanut minua lainkaan, mutta John Saxonia katson aina mielelläni. Olen vähän huono arvioimaan mitään puukkohippaan viittaavaakaan, koska olen hyvin ennakkoluuloinen slashereiden osalta. Black Christmasin viehätys tuli minulle oikeastaan täysin siitä, että siinä nähdään joitain genretrooppeja, joita ei välttämättä käytetä ihan samalla tavalla k"

"Re-watch - Oct. 27th By comparison to the film above, Black Christmas is a masterpiece. The first time I watched this movie I was underwhelmed, but this time around I more deeply appreciated everything going on. The ending alone almost elevates it to greatness, and it's clear that it influenced a wide swath of films that followed in its wake. Overall though it falls just shy of greatness for me, but I'm glad I gave it another look."
