Directed by Bob Clark
During a festive Yuletide party, a group of sorority sisters receive a creepy call from someone who claims he’s going to kill them all. The girls soon realize the threats were serious, when one by one, they each fall prey to the mysterious maniac. After directing two relatively ignored horror flicks which later became cult classics (CHILDREN SHOULDN’T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS & DEATHDREAM), a Christmas miracle made Bob Clark’s 1974 classic a hit. A huge influence on John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN, BLACK CHRISTMAS is frequently credited with helping spawn the slasher subgenre.
This horror classic about a killer stalking sorority girls on Xmas helped spawn the slasher genre.
Cast: Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder
I'm still surprised by how hard I've fell in love with this movie. Give it a watch!! You won't regret it for a second.
I loved this movie!!!
Watching "Black Christmas" is like reading John Polidori's "The Vampyre." You're witnessing the creation of an archetype that has never been successfully duplicated, even by its more famous imitators. It's strange to say about a slasher film, but if you're a fan of the genre then "Black Christmas" is a transcendent experience.
i fucking love this movie and this classic horror movie is better than the remake
