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
Really enjoyed this movie i recommend
Yes. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. But why are the police so dumb. And why didn’t they check the attic
Not good for a classic was bored the whole time. I enjoyed the remake more than this one
Really, really enjoyed this! Pacing and suspense was great! Classic.
Good film but boy these police make bad calls in the end that ruin it with plot holes. Why don’t they take the protagonist to the hospital too?? Why do they assume it was bf even after she told them he was in the room when the first call came?? Why aren’t they still looking for the first girls body in the house now that they know all the other murder occurred there?? The protagonist is pretty unbearable too after grabbing the fire iron, making all the wrong decisions for the sake of a horror movie. Also I was happy when the fellatio chick died, she was a bitch. Good flick.
