Black Christmas – Presented by Fangoria
Director: Bob Clark
1974, Canada, 98 mins., Digital Cinema, R
One part frosty Xmas atmosphere, one part stalk ‘n’ slash magnificence and all parts awesome, BLACK CHRISTMAS is a timeless, terrifying and demented holiday tradition. Years before he crafted the ultimate comedic yuletime experience A CHRISTMAS STORY, genre pioneer Bob Clark gave us one of the most influential Hitchcockian slashers of all time. BLACK CHRISTMAS gets *everything* right.
When sorority sisters Olivia Hussey (ROMEO & JULIET ’68), Margot Kidder (SUPERMAN) and Andrea Martin (SCTV) are under attack from a vicious potty-mouthed killer, it’s up to police chief John Saxon to even the odds. But what about Keir Dullea (2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY), the brooding art-school pianist? Could he have something to do with the Xmas rampage?
