Did I ever tell ya that this here Letterboxd represents a symbol of my individuality and my belief in personal freedom?
One could make the case that one of the best things about the original Black Christmas is that we never learn ANYTHING about the killer. It makes things so random and scary.
They decide to go in the exact opposite direction in this reboot and we learn a little too much about Billy Lentz and his gross family for my liking.
That said this movie is still fun, extremely gruesome, and super DUPER into doing awful things to eyeballs.
Sick today so why not use the downtime to launch into a month of seasonal horror?
Starting out with the G.O.A.T. for that particular subgenre and it remains glorious.
The garbled psycho speak of the killer is genuinely creepy, John Saxon is the only cop I'd ever trust (besides Robocop), and Margot Kidder remains a damn treasure.
