Black Christmas

Black Christmas ★★

At one point an alleged male ally to these young women pulls the whole "Not All Men" thing and then one of the women goes "Did you just Not All Men me?" and I'm there just thinking "I can't believe this felt like it was a good idea to have characters use the phrase Not All Men in any context at all." I fully admire the attempt to make a slasher movie that isn't visually and psychically dedicated to picking off these girls one at a time, but the movie in front of you here is largely T-shirt feminism (literally in one scene) when it isn't merely clumsy, toothless in its violence, and I hate to say it but shot like it was made for Lifetime. It's just all very tepid.
