Default Black Christmas (1974)

I watched Black Christmas Today for the second time,The first time i watched it,i had heard so much hype about it that my expectations were ridiculously over the top.
And expected more gore,BUT~!! this time i watched it with no expectations,older calmer,and more able to apreciate a real horror masterpiece,I found it to be extremley entertaining and scary.
The acting was superband so was the story.
The subtle death scenes were effective,even though not gory,although the unicorn death scene did have some bloody reward.It is now one of my favorite horror films,and for 1974,it was groundbreaking ,and in my opinion it was the first "When a Stranger Calls". if someone else has said this in the past, fuck u ,I know how evil u bitchs can be.

One of my favorites. Anyone who loves Halloween owes it to themselves to check out where Carpenter got some of his ideas.

I liked this movie too. It's classic, and it gives me the creeps.

Funny thing is it took me 2 or 3 times of viewing to really appreciate what the movie was. relys striclty on plot and suspension , while you see basically no murders or any violence . Its a pure genious of a film and definite masterpiece. I said at first whats all the hype, and like I said after 2 or 3 views I do understand.

One of my favorite horror movies. Very suspenseful. Saw it for the first time Dec. 25 2004 at 3 AM and was paranoid walking up the stairs in the dark afterwards.

The movie fucking sucks.

Yes, some of it IS creepy, but.....so what. The kills sucked. The characters sucked. The movie doesn't even tell you who the killer is or why he's killing people. The cops are ridiculously stupid. They find dead bodies in the house but never once check the attic where the killer and his 1st victim is hiding. No investigation at all, just cleaned up the bodies and left without looking around for more MISSING victims. The hero girl is ridiculously stupid. After all the death in her house she stays behind all alone when the cops leave. What girl do you know that would stay in the house after her friends are all murdered?

Outside of some creepy scenes, I can't see why the movie is held in such high reguard. The only similarites to Halloween were a few interior shots and camera angles, not much more.

Classic horror film. Really creepy, and I always liked that you never get to see the killer. Makes it more effective than it would have been otherwise.

The kills in Halloween werent any better. Do we know why Myers is killing people or why he killed his sister? No.

The cops do search the house. They even asked one detective if he wanted them to search the attic, but he said no. You dont pay much attention to what you watch huh?

She was exausted and passed out, so they let her rest in a house that was secure..or so they thought. There was a cop standing guard outside the house. Again you dont pay much attention do you?

Funny, i was thinking the same thing about Halloween.

Youre bitching and moaning about the kills in Black Christmas, but the kills in Halloween were no different. Both movies relied on suspence and atmosphere, not blood and guts.

billy!!!!one of my top 10 favorites and pissed as hell they're doing it again...killer classic from bob clark who also did deathdream,children shouldn't play w/ dead things(clark is remaking it),porky's,and a christmas story...great first person shots(halloween was originally supposed to be a sequel),cast(kidder,martin,hussey,and saxon)and phone calls...

anyone ever notice how it's the same snowball shot in blk. christmas (first victim's father,which is classic,lose your daughter get a snowball)& a christmas story(ralph from the bully)?

on a side note i work w/ the guy who tried to help kidder that time she had her little spell in the airport...
