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
Absolutely loved it!!!
One of the best slashers ever made. Great performances and a tight script that keeps moving. Not as gory as those that followed but really works on the level of tension and fright.
This movie is kind of incredible. A cop gets shot in the ass.
creepy, loved it!
My hearing is kinda messed up and there's no closed captioning option. So I didn't catch what was said on most of those phone calls (apparently the best part of the movie). Oh well.
