    Black Christmas

    ★★★★★

    Black Christmas is the best slasher ever made.

    Every character is their own, there are no interchangeable sorority sisters, Barb [Margot Kidder] is so well-defined that when she's drunk at dinner with Mr. Harrison, at first glance you may dismiss her defiance as another drunk/comedic moment, but just a few scenes earlier we see Barb disappointed that her mother won't be around for Christmas, she lashes out at Mr. Harrison's daughter Clare, and then at Clare's concerned & present father, in…
