Black Christmas

Black Christmas ★½

"Hey, you. Suck. My. Cli-"

This is so over the top and poorly conceived that I don't even want to make fun of it (and trust me, I had jokes). It's a really sub-par, neutered horror wrapped in an insanely overdone script. This can be done well, and I'm all in for movies doing female empowerment and femenism-forward stories, but you can't be this absurdly blunt with it. All the men are such caricatures that it just ruins any well meaning points the script tried to make. I kind of liked the lead though, and the snow angel kill looked nice stylistically.

This rating makes this seem not that much worse than '06, but it most definitely is. Comparing the quality of these three movies, the rating scale is almost logorithmic
