Poor Billy is only tying to find someone who will listen to him; too bad he wasted his time on those snotty sorority girls... because they don't seem to care at all! Every time he calls and tries to pour his heart out to them, they laugh and hang up on him and just wont listen. That means they have to die.
|Billy likes to watch.|
Far be it from me to spoil the what happens here, but suffice it to say that there's a dead bitch in the attic, and her cat is an asshole.
|See, this is why I hate cats... She's dead, asshole. Go feed yourself!|
What a creepy classic this one is. Tense, dark, and unsettling, Bob Clark made a Horror movie that was years ahead of it's time with Black Christmas. His use of shadow, odd angles, and tension in place of buckets of blood were genius for its time, and it still holds up well, nearly 40 years later. Not bad for a little movie with a budget under a million dollars.
This film is not only a Horror Classic, but it was also groundbreaking when it was released; it was basically the first American-made Slasher movie; it used the "the calls are coming from inside the house" gag years before When a Strangers Calls did; and it was one of the first movies to show us the action from the killers POV. This movie deserves to stand alongside Halloween as one of the best slasher films ever, although it tends to be a footnote when the two are discussed. Shame, that.
I had certain misconceptions about this movie before I saw it...
|Turns out it's not that kind of Black Christmas, after all...|
There were a few on-screen deaths, but they were very light on the blood. Creepy though. Very creepy.
|She must have died mid-Christmas Carol.|
"Darling, you can't rape a townie." or "I'm going to kill you."
When someone tells you to get out of the house, you don't run upstairs with a fire poker.... you GTFO of the house!
|"You want us to leave now? Alright, we're on our way upstairs!"|
Black Christmas is available now on Blu-ray and DVD.
Olivia "the" Hussey and Margot "crazy as fuck" Kidder are in this, and both are looking rather 70's hot.
