You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
A sorority house is terrorized by a stranger who makes frightening phone calls and then murders the sorority sisters during Christmas break.
Wishing each and every one of you a much better Christmas than this lot got.
I love you all enough to not want you to be slaughtered by a homicidal maniac.
Unless you do not love, cherish and adore this film. Then you can get the dry cleaner plastic ready.
Anyways, merry Christmas!

I adore Christmas. For all the eyeroll-inducing cheese and the schmaltz that the season can bring, it truly is my favorite time of year. I love Christmas music (good Christmas music, that is, not the treacle piped in over the PA system at the mall). I love buying just the right present and wrapping it carefully. I love trimming the tree. I love all of the Yuletide food and drink (especially tamales which, if you’re from Texas, are mandatory). I love spending time with family and friends. I love the chill in the air. I love watching A Charlie Brown Christmas and White Christmas and Rudolph the…
Black Christmas (from A Christmas Story director, Bob Clark) is not only one of the greatest Christmas-themed horror films of all time, it is one of the most gorgeous and brilliant films I have ever seen.
Not only is it striking with fantastic, chilling transitions just melting into one scene to the next, the camera work is close to revolutionary giving us point-of-view shots from unbelievably creative and memorable angles.
Understandably Black Christmas is one of the most influential films when it comes to the slasher genre which blew up only a few years later, a proto-slasher giving us a new spin, transforming a typical whodunnit into a haunting and relentless visual experience with a glimpse into what would soon…
Black Christmas was one of the first films in the slasher genre back in 1974, and together with Mario Bavas Bay of Blood, provided inspiration for the many genre films that came after. The film starred Margot 'Lois Lane' Kidder, and John Saxon who, due to his roles in this, A Nightmare on Elm St, and Tenebrae, deserves to be in the horror version of the Expendibles (if Bruce Campbell gets his way!).
Recently I've been getting quite bored of slasher films as I've probably seen too many now in the last year and most tend to be substandard, however this surprised me with how well it was made! Another aspect that makes this an extremely rare slasher movie is…
If you say this film doesn't make your skin crawl, you're a fucking liar.
Top 3 slasher film without a doubt. It'll forever remain fresh every single time I watch it. Incredibly bleak, slow but never boring, and truly terrifying moments. With each viewing, different moments chill my bones.
Part One of A Very Merry Christmas Challenge
Ah, Christmastime. The gentle snow-fall outside. A lively party is underway inside a big house, with the residents desperately trying to stay warm. The lights are glistening, reflecting, adding to an atmosphere that can only be described as mesmerizing. A couple of the party-goers are a little drunk, some are making last-minute plans, others have already left.
Oh, the phone's ringing. Ringing..Ringing.....Ringing.....Ringing.....Ringing... Ringing.......Ringing.......Ringing..............Ringing.......
One rule: Don't pick up the home phone while you're at a party. First off, you're being rude to your guests, and second, ain't nobody got time for psychopathic maniacs who are hiding in your attic. They can wait.
Now, where's the liquor I hid in that book that no one cares about.....

Good God, now we'll never who the redditor with a cell phone in the middle 70s was!
Good for any season, especially Spooktober.

I've been watching too many Halloween movies, I thought I would sneak in something more festive.
a good reminder of how much I hate attics! great ending.

Super cool proto-slasher from CANADA!!!! Bob Clark helped inspire perhaps greater films, but his Black Christmas sure remains a fun entry into the genre. Good acting, inventive camera work, competent police (except for that stupid desk sergeant), bleak ending. What more could you want from a low budget 70's horror movie.
I could do no better than this excellent review: letterboxd.com/arbogast1960/film/black-christmas/
A crucial text in the slash film genre.
I want to watch it again. I really liked what it was doing. I loved Margo Kidder. This movie is insanely creepy, just the use of the heavy breathing and that demented voice on the other side of the phone is incredibly effective. But I was tired, Night of the Living Dead tired, and for some reason I couldn't quite connect with the movie the way I wanted to. It is a good thing I am now addicted to Cinema Cult DVDs so I can watch it when ever I want.

I was going to write about my mixed feelings towards the slasher genre and why I feel it's one of the blandest and most boring sub-genres to exist, but screw it, I wanna talk about John Saxon for a sec. I have unintentionally watched a random assortment of movies where he keeps popping up. I watch Battle Beyond the Stars, he's the villain. I watch A Nightmare on Elm Street, he's Laurie's dad. I watch Enter the Dragon, he's a competitor. I watch Mitchell, he's one of the bad guys. I watch Black Christmas, he's the sheriff. Now don't get me wrong, I love it when John Saxon pops up in movies.…
