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
Love this movie one of my classics wish I could watch again in uk
Ominous all throughout the movie.
Excellent! Great cinematography and editing, and creepy as hell. Loved it!
Now I understand why people so easily give this movie credit for starting the slasher craze. It may not have Jason or Freddy.... but don't let that stop you from watching it. This honestly rivals Halloween, in terms of atmosphere. Timeless classic for sure.
