Sonny Bunch’s review published on Letterboxd:
Imagine feeding a million woke tweets into an AI and then getting that AI drunk on White Claw and then forcing it to write a script and you have some idea of the BLACK CHRISTMAS experience.
It’s just dramatically inert, with buzzword-laden screeds in the place of dialogue (“not all men” and Camille Paglia get angry shout outs, so you know it was written by someone who is Very On Twitter), a PG-13 rating neutering any chance of being terrified by the writing, and the occasional jump scare substituting for actual terror.
I try to find something small to enjoy in every movie, but not even Cary Elwes as a murderous professor could light up the screen.
Holy shit what a disaster.
