Black Christmas (1974)
Christmas is coming early this year. And it's murder.
One part frosty Christmas 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 yuletide 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, Margot Kidder, and Andrea Martin are under attack from a vicious killer, it’s up to police chief John Saxon to even the odds. But what about Keir Dullea, the brooding art-school pianist? Could he have something to do with the Christmas rampage?
