Black Christmas - Preview & competition
Preview by Jack Foley
A SORORITY group’s Christmas holiday plans are violently disturbed by a sadistic, obscene phone call that threatens to shatter the yuletide peace for good.
Their fear is calmed by the local police who assure them there’s nothing to worry about, but when the first body turns up, the depraved caller’s threats soon become a horrifying reality.
Slowly the girls are picked off one by one and a frantic search begins to find the killer before their white Christmas turns blood red.
As brutal in its violence as it is terrifying in its effect, Black Christmas is a true horror classic that left its mark on the genre for years to come, influencing such horror greats as Halloween and Scream.
Directed by Bob Clark, it was released in 1974 and Olivia Hussey and John Saxon, as well as spawning its own, less critically well received remake in 2006.
Now the classic original is re-released for a new generation to once again experience the sheer terror of the original stalk-and-slash masterpiece.
