Ryan grew up exploring the greatest christmas horror movie. I like your cat. Would Billy still be alive today. What terrible writing, dialog and story. A shame and waste of a remake, doesn't deserve to share the same title as the original. The highlight of watching this movie was when my friend accidentally stuck her elbow in my overpriced nacho cheese. It started out pretty bad, the kills where less then thrilling, the suspense. well aside from hoping the cat doesn't was none. The idea of girl power is fine but it's over kill like an all female action episode in a 90's tv sitcom ( I don't believe that was the intention) I like campy movies but this was going in to many directions and couldn't pull it off. I was in a group of 9 people and none of us liked it. Just stick with the original Black Christmas.
I thought it was an amazing, kick ass movie to empower women through somewhat heavy-handed symbolic feminism. It was funny and charming and a bit spooky but not outright scary.
The trailer gave everything away so that sucks but it was still a fun watch for a Tuesday matinee! Girls need more scary movies like this one. Let the men sweat. Czarne święta muzyka.
Actor Nick Mancuso provided most of the obscene phone calls by standing,at least for a few moments,on his head. Bob Clark provided some of the other sounds and shrieks. Nearly a decade before he made A Christmas Story, director Bob Clark embarked on making another eventual holiday classic of a different sort: The story of a sorority house decorated with Christmas lights, an unsuspecting group of young women, and a mysterious killer lurking in the attic. Black Christmas is one of the most important Canadian horror films of all time, and is now considered a classic of both the Christmas and the horror genres, as well as an important benchmark on the road to slasher films as we now know them. Here are a dozen facts about the film, from creepy voices to the actors who almost joined the production. 1. It went through several script evolutions. Black Christmas began life as a screenplay by Roy Moore called The Babysitter, which riffed on the now-familiar urban legend of a babysitter tormented by a killer who turns out to be making phone calls from inside the house. That concept was tweaked by writer Timothy Bond to include a collegiate setting, and eventually made its way to director Bob Clark, who’d made a working home for himself in Canada after kickstarting his film career in the United States with low-budget films like Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things. The script, then retitled Stop Me, underwent yet another evolution in Clark’s hands. The director dialed back the murder sequences, believing they were “too violent, ” and added various dialogue to “emphasize the adultness of college students, ” including the scenes in which Barb (Margot Kidder) is drunkenly ranting about turtles having sex. Clark also introduced the idea that the film would never actually show the killer to the audience, something Moore—the film’s sole credited writer—"didn’t want to go along with" at first, according to Clark. Moore eventually came around, and the film’s now-famous mysterious killer concept stuck. 2. Olivia Hussey said yes because of a psychic. Clark wanted to make Black Christmas as sophisticated as he possibly could, and pursued top-tier talent to elevate his script. To that end, he reached out to Olivia Hussey, then best known for her work on Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet, to play the role of “final girl” Jess Bradford. Hussey took the part, and when she showed up on set, she apparently had a rather interesting reason for saying yes. According to co-producer Gerry Arbeid, Hussey told him that she’d been informed by a psychic that she would be involved in a film in Canada that would make a lot of money. Since Black Christmas was being filmed in Toronto, she believed it to be the film the psychic was referring to. Arbeid told her at the time that he hoped she was right. 3. Bette Davis was asked to play the house mother. The sorority’s house mother, Mrs. MacHenry or Mrs. Mac, was loosely based on one of Clark’s aunts, who also had a habit of hiding liquor bottles throughout the house. The role is vividly played by veteran actress Marian Waldman, but Clark originally had a bigger named in mind. The role was offered to screen legend Bette Davis, but she ultimately turned the role down. 4. Gilda Radner was supposed to co-star. Black Christmas 's cast is a mix of already established stars (Hussey and 2001: A Space Odyssey 's Keir Dullea among them) and future stars (Margot Kidder, for example, had not yet starred in Superman), and that’s also reflected in the people who were almost in the cast. One future star who was cast but ultimately had to leave the film was Gilda Radner, who would have played Phyl, one of the longest-surviving sorority sisters in the house. Just a month before filming was set to begin, Radner was cast on a new TV show called NBC’s Saturday Night, which was eventually retitled Saturday Night Live. The role of Phyl went to future screen and stage legend Andrea Martin instead. 5. One actor was fired for a tragic reason. For the role of police Lt. Kenneth Fuller, Clark originally wanted Oscar-winning actor Edmond O’Brien, who agreed to do the film. When O’Brien arrived in Toronto to begin work, though, Clark and Arbeid noticed something was wrong. According to Arbeid, O’Brien had trouble remembering where he was, and once declared that he was going to go back up to his hotel room while they were dining together at a restaurant in another part of town. It became clear that Alzheimer’s was beginning to take hold of the veteran actor, and Clark and Arbeid were worried about what might happen if they took O’Brien out into the cold Toronto winter for the night shoots required to film the scenes in which the police are searching for the missing girls. So the decision was made to let O’Brien go, and it fell to Arbeid to sit the actor down and break the news to him. “It was very traumatic for me as well, and he burst into tears, ” Arbeid recalled. “It was a very sad thing. ” With a tight schedule to keep, Arbeid and Clark had to recast the role of Lt. Fuller quickly. John Saxon was available, and was in wardrobe and preparing to shoot his first scenes just hours after landing in Toronto. According to Clark and Arbeid, if Saxon hadn’t said yes so quickly, the production might have been shut down. 6. A lot of the snow wasn’t real. Though the film was shot in Toronto during the winter, Black Christmas dealt with an interesting problem when it came time to set the wintry scenes: a lack of snow. What little snow the production did have was closely guarded by the film's art director Karen Bromley, who recalled going to the house where much of the film was shot very early in the morning and making sure no one tracked through it before cameras were rolling. For the scenes where snow simply wasn’t around, the production employed a fire truck spraying out flame retardant foam—the kind usually used for hard landings on airport tarmacs—to simulate a wintry look. 7. The creepy phone call voices were done upside down. One of the most memorable elements of Black Christmas is the repeated use of phone calls from the killer, which take the form of threats, screaming, and arguments from two personalities calling themselves “Billy” and “Agnes, ” though little else is told to us during the film. The calls were mixed by composer Carl Zittrer, and the voices were done by actor Nick Mancuso (who auditioned with his back to Clark so the director would hear rather than see the character), Clark, and other uncredited performers. According to Mancuso, one of the ways he achieved a particularly creepy vocal effect was to perform the calls upside down. "I did the voice actually standing on my head to compress the thorax, to give it that kind of weird and spooky sound, " Mancuso later recalled. 8. One cameraman played the killer. The film is also recognizable for its continuous use of point of view shots to establish the movements of the killer throughout the film. All of those shots, including every time we see the killer’s hands, were performed by cameraman Bert Dunk, who developed a “body brace” rig that would allow him to mount the camera on his shoulder while keeping his hands free. Dunk used that rig to climb the trellis outside of the house, throw objects around the attic, and even perform the famous bag strangulation scene with the bag mounted on the camera lens. 9. There is a backstory for the killer. Clark was determined to keep the killer’s identity mysterious throughout Black Christmas, so other than the names Billy and Agnes we know very little about who he is or why he kills. That doesn’t mean no information exists, though. According to Clark, he developed a “very strong” backstory for Billy that provides a subtle logic to the phone calls. "Billy is abusive and abused his little sister, and was abused himself, and probably killed his parents, and probably locked her up in a basement for five or six years, ” Clark said. “And I think she escaped, and Billy doesn’t like girls, and it turns out Agnes doesn’t like boys. " A version of this backstory was explored in greater detail in the film’s 2006 remake. 10. Several crew members maDe cameos. Because Black Christmas was produced on a low budget, Clark cut costs and saved time wherever he could, which meant various crew members ended up playing small roles throughout the film. Arbeid, for example, appears in the film as the taxi driver at the door of the sorority house. Among the other cameos: Property master John “Frenchie” Berger appears as a snowmobiler during the search of the park, costume designer Debi Weldon appears as a sorority sister, and production supervisor Dave Robertson appears as a police officer. 11. It was a hit in Canada, but bombed in America—at first. Black Christmas was released in the fall of 1974 in its home country of Canada, and creative marketing (including a series of macabre countdown ads released in newspapers) helped make it a box office success. Warner Bros. picked up the film for distribution in the United States, and though the response to preview screenings was positive, the studio was worried that the title would make people think it was a blaxploitation film rather than a Christmas horror feature. The film was retitled Silent Night, Evil Night for its U. S. release, and audiences never quite latched on. Ironically, as was common practice at the time in Canada, various sets in the film had been dressed with American flags to make the movie more appealing to U. audiences. Revival screenings and home video releases eventually took care of Black Christmas in the States, and the film is now considered a holiday horror classic. 12. It helped inspire Halloween. Black Christmas is considered one of the prototypes for what would become the slasher genre thanks to its high body count, point of view shots, and use of the “final girl” plot device, among other things, but it turns out the film actually has a rather direct connection to another of the most influential films in the genre. After it was released, Clark and writer/director John Carpenter were working on a project together. That project was never released, but the work did eventually lead to Carpenter one day expressing to Clark that he loved Black Christmas, and asking if a sequel or companion film could ever happen. Clark said he wasn’t really interested in going back to that territory, but he did offer up an idea for what it could be. “It’ll be he was captured after all, he was put in an institution, and the movie will begin the night he escapes, back in town and they don’t know it yet, and I’m gonna call it Halloween, ” Bob Clark recalled telling Carpenter. “He deserves the full, expansive credit he’s gotten for doing that movie, ” Clark added. “A few words about an idea are hardly a screenplay and a finished movie. ” Additional Sources: The 12 Days of Black Christmas (2006) On Screen! : Black Christmas (2005).

Black Christmas Theatrical release poster Directed by Bob Clark Produced by Bob Clark Written by A. Roy Moore Starring Olivia Hussey Keir Dullea Margot Kidder John Saxon Music by Carl Zittrer Cinematography Reginald H. Morris Edited by Stan Cole Production company Canadian Film Development Corportation Film Funding Ltd. Distributed by Ambassador Film Distributors (Canada) Warner Bros. (USA/International) Release date October 11, 1974 Running time 98 minutes  Country Canada Language English Budget $620, 000 Box office $4. 1 million Black Christmas is a 1974 Canadian slasher film produced and directed by Bob Clark, and written by A. Roy Moore. It stars Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, Andrea Martin, Marian Waldman, Lynne Griffin and John Saxon. The story follows a group of sorority sisters who receive threatening phone calls and are eventually stalked and murdered by a deranged killer during the Christmas season. It is the first film in the Black Christmas series. Inspired by the urban legend " The babysitter and the man upstairs " and a series of murders that took place in the Westmount section of Montreal, Quebec, Moore wrote the screenplay under the title Stop Me. The filmmakers made numerous alterations to the script, primarily the shifting to a university setting with young adult characters. It was shot in Toronto in 1974 on an estimated budget of $620, 000, and was distributed by Warner Bros. in North America. Black Christmas was released on October 11, 1974, in Canada and December 20 in the United States under the title Silent Night, Evil Night. Upon its release, the film received mixed reviews, but it has since received critical re-appraisal, with film historians noting it for being one of the earliest slasher films.  It is also praised for concluding without revealing the identity of its villain, as well as serving as an influence on John Carpenter 's Halloween (1978). Aside from its earning a cult following  since its release, a novelization written by Lee Hays was published in 1976. Plot [ edit] An unseen and disoriented man climbs up into the attic of a sorority house, where the tenants are celebrating with a Christmas party. One of the girls, Jess, answers an obscene phone call from a mentally unstable man who is implied to call the house regularly. She summons her fellow students into the room, where they listen as the caller screams and curses them on the phone. When one of the girls, foul-mouthed Barb, takes the phone from Jess, she incites the caller, who in turn promises to kill her. Barb argues with a younger student, Clare Harrison, who implies that the caller could be a serial rapist, before Clare returns to her bedroom to finish packing for Christmas break. The disoriented man lures Clare into her closet, where he suffocates her with a plastic dress bag. He moves her body to the attic. The following morning, Mr. Harrison arrives at the school to pick up his daughter, but she fails to show up to their agreed meeting place. He quickly makes his way to the sorority house, where the housemother, Mrs. MacHenry, is surprised by Clare's absence. Meanwhile, Jess meets her boyfriend, Peter, a neurotic music student. She explains she is pregnant and planning to get an abortion, angering Peter, who attempts to intimidate her. In town, Mr. Harrison, accompanied by Barb and one of the other girls, Phyllis Carlson, attempt to report Clare as missing, while Jess quickly tells Clare's boyfriend Chris about Clare's sudden disappearance. They learn that another local girl named Janis Quaife has also seemingly vanished while walking home from school. After putting a drunken Barb to bed, Mr. Harrison, Chris, Jess, and Phyllis help search for Janis in a nearby park where she allegedly disappeared, hoping to turn up some sign of Clare. Meanwhile, Mrs. Mac plans to leave for her sister's home, only to be lured up into the attic, where she discovers Clare's body. The killer throws a crane hook into her face, hanging and killing her. In the park, Janis's disfigured body is found by the police and Jess returns home, while the search continues for Clare. Jess answers another obscene phone call and decides to file a report with the police, only for Peter to appear and surprise her. He attempts to persuade her into marriage for the sake of their child, but Jess adamantly refuses. Peter leaves in an emotional state, while Lieutenant Kenneth Fuller arrives to bug the telephone. A group of choir children arrive on the house's stoop to sing Christmas carols, distracting Jess. The killer enters Barb's room and murders her with a glass figurine; Barb's cries for help are drowned out by the singing children. One of the women in charge of the children ushers them away, having learned of Janis's murder. Jess experiences another unnerving phone call, in which the caller restates part of her argument with Peter. Lieutenant Fuller theorizes that Peter could be responsible, due to the caller's knowledge of the argument and his own mental fragility, but Jess doubts this. Moments later, Phyllis enters Barb's room and is ambushed by the killer, who murders her off-screen. Jess gets another obscene phone call, in which the killer alludes to some sort of transgression between two children named Agnes and Billy. The call is long enough to be traced by Graham, a telephone company employee, and Sergeant Nash instructs Jess to leave the house immediately, as the calls have been traced to be coming from within the house. Concerned for Barb and Phyllis, Jess arms herself with a poker and ventures upstairs, where she discovers Barb and Phyllis's maimed figures. The killer appears and pursues Jess through the house; Jess locks herself in the cellar, only for Peter to appear outside one of the windows. He smashes the window to get to Jess, who proceeds to bludgeon him with the poker, assuming he is the killer. The police arrive moments later, alerted by Jess's screams. They discover her barely conscious in the basement, with Peter's bloody remains next to her. They put Jess to bed and discuss the murders, unaware of the bodies of Clare and Mrs. MacHenry still in the attic. Jess is left in the house to rest, with a policeman standing outside. The killer climbs down from the attic as Jess sleeps in a nearby room. The house's telephone begins to ring, leaving Jess's fate unknown as the credits roll. Cast [ edit] Production [ edit] This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. ( March 2019) Development [ edit] Canadian Roy Moore wrote the screenplay entitled Stop Me,  based on " The Babysitter and the Man Upstairs " urban legend.   Moore also claimed to have been inspired by a series of strangulation murders that occurred during the holiday season in the Westmount area of Montreal between 1968 and 1971.  [ additional citation(s) needed] Film producers Harvey Sherman and Richard Schouten had Timothy Bond rewrite the script to give it a university setting.   Clark, who had felt the original script was too much of a straightforward slasher film, made several alterations in dialogue,  and also incorporated humorous elements into the film, particularly the drunkenness of Barb, and Mrs. Mac, who Clark based on his aunt.  Clark felt that college and high school students had not been depicted with "any sense of reality" in American film, and that he intended to capture the "astuteness" of young adults: "College students—even in 1974—are astute people. They're not fools. It's not all 'bikinis, beach blankets, [and] bingo'. "  Casting [ edit] The central cast of Black Christmas (clockwise from left to right): Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, John Saxon, and Margot Kidder Olivia Hussey, who had previously garnered international fame for her role as Juliet in Franco Zeffirelli 's Romeo and Juliet (1968), signed on to appear in the film after being told by a psychic that she would "make a film in Canada that would earn a great deal of money. "  Clark sought Keir Dullea to play the role of Peter based on his performance as Dave Bowman in 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).  The role of Mrs. Mac was offered to Bette Davis,  who declined the part.  Margot Kidder was cast in the role of Barb, and said she had been attracted to the character "because she was wild and out of control", and not a "conventional leading" part.  For the role of Clare Harrison, whose murder jump-starts the film's plot, Toronto native Lynne Griffin was cast after her mother, who was also her casting agent at the time, got her an audition. Griffin would later go on to star in Curtains (1983), and in the acclaimed television series Wind at My Back (1996–2001).  Gilda Radner was offered the role of Phyllis Carlson. She accepted the part, but dropped out one month before filming began owing to Saturday Night Live commitments, and was replaced by Andrea Martin.   The role of Lieutenant Fuller was originally given to Edmond O'Brien. Upon his arrival to the set, however, the producers realized he would be unable to fulfill the duties required of the part due to his failing health (stemming from Alzheimer's disease).  John Saxon, who had read the script prior, was called by the producers who offered him the role. He accepted, and had to arrive in Toronto from New York City within two days to begin shooting.  Filming [ edit] Black Christmas was shot on location in Toronto in the winter of 1973–74. The house featured in the film had been discovered by Clark while scouting for locations, and its owners agreed to lease the home for the production.  Additional photography was completed on the University of Toronto campus.  According to John Saxon, Clark had meticulously drawn out storyboards with key shots, which he brought to the film set each day: "I could understand exactly what I thought he needed, and the scene needed. "  Scenes in the film involving POV shot of Billy scaling the house was accomplished through the use of a rig designed by camera operator Bert Dunk, which was attached to Dunk's head as he climbed up the side of the house.  Griffin's death scene, which was shot with a handheld camera in a real closet, was accomplished in only a couple of takes. According to Griffin, her character's surprise as the killer lunges from the closet was genuine as the actress later recalled: "it was a total shock because I didn't really know when to expect him to jump out! " Shots of Clare's corpse in the rocking chair required the actress to wear an actual plastic bag over her head for extended periods of time. Griffin would also state that these scenes came relatively easy for her, "I was actually, and still am, a fairly good swimmer so I could hold my breath for a long time. And I could also keep my eyes open for a long time without blinking. "  Margot Kidder remembered shooting the film as being "fun. I really bonded with Andrea Martin, filming in Toronto and Ontario. Olivia Hussey was a bit of an odd one. She was obsessed with the idea of falling in love with Paul McCartney through her psychic. We were a little hard on her for things like that. "  Post-production [ edit] The composer of the film's score, Carl Zittrer, stated in an interview that he created the film's mysterious music by tying forks, combs, and knives onto the strings of the piano to warp the sound of the keys.  Zittrer also stated that he would distort the sound further by recording its sound onto an audio tape and make the sound slower.  The audio for the disturbing phone calls was performed by multiple actors including actor Nick Mancuso  and director Bob Clark.  Mancuso stated in an interview that he stood on his head during the recording sessions to compress his thorax and make his voice sound more demented.  During preparation in 1975 for the film's American release, Warner Bros. studio executives asked Clark to change the concluding scene to show Clare's boyfriend, Chris, appear in front of Jess and say, "Agnes, don't tell them what we did" before killing her. However, Clark insisted on keeping the ending ambiguous. The original title of the film was initially planned to be Stop Me.  Clark has stated in an interview that he came up with the film's official title, saying that he enjoyed the irony of a dark event occurring during a festive holiday. According to Clark as well, Warner Bros. changed the title to Silent Night, Evil Night for the United States theatrical release.  Release [ edit] Theatrical distribution [ edit] Black Christmas was distributed in Canada by Ambassador Film Distributors and released in Toronto on October 11, 1974.  In the United States, Warner Bros. released the film in tandem with the Christmas season on December 20, 1974.  For the American release, Warner Bros. initially changed the title to Silent Night, Evil Night, worried that the original title would mislead audiences into believing the film was a blaxploitation movie.  They retracted the title after the initial release, restoring it to Black Christmas for subsequent screenings.  The film later screened in October 1975 in New York City and Chicago,  as well as 19 theaters in Los Angeles, where it generated considerable ticket sales. This prompted Warner Bros. to expand the release to a total of 70 theaters nationwide in time for Halloween, but the film only generated a daily average of $700 per theater, per day, after which Warner Bros. withdrew the film from circulation in December.  The film had previously screened under the alternative title Silent Night, Evil Night in Virginia in July 1975.  Overall, Black Christmas grossed over $4, 053, 000 internationally, managing to earn more than its budget of $620, 000.  When released in the UK, the BBFC had the word "cunt" removed, as well as several other crude and sexual references during the first obscene phone call. [ citation needed] Television premiere controversy [ edit] The film, under the title Stranger in the House, was set to make its network television premiere on Saturday night, January 28, 1978, on NBC 's weekly "Saturday Night at the Movies". Two weeks prior to its premiere, the Chi Omega Sorority House on the campus of Florida State University in Tallahassee was the scene of a double murder in which two Chi Omega sisters, asleep in their beds, were bludgeoned to death. The killer then went to a nearby room in the sorority house and violently attacked two more sleeping co-eds, who survived. The killer was later identified as Ted Bundy, who was executed for this and other homicides on January 24, 1989.  A few days before the movie was set to premiere on network television Florida's then-Governor Reubin Askew contacted NBC President Robert Mullholland to request the movie not be shown due to its all-too-similar theme as the murders of sorority sisters by an unknown madman at the Chi Omega Sorority House. On Tuesday, January 24, NBC-TV gave several of its affiliates in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama, the option of showing an alternate movie, Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze, in place of Stranger in the House.  "The network said in a statement issued yesterday in New York City that it was responding to concern voiced by the affiliates because of the murder of two coeds this month in a sorority house at Florida State University in Tallahassee. "  Critical response [ edit] During its initial release, the film had garnered mixed reviews. A. H. Weiler of The New York Times called it "a whodunit that raises the question as to why was it made. "  Variety called the film "a bloody, senseless kill-for-kicks feature, [that] exploits unnecessary violence in a university sorority house operated by an implausibly alcoholic ex-hoofer. Its slow-paced, murky tale involves an obscene telephone caller who apparently delights in killing the girls off one by one, even the hapless house-mother. "  Gene Siskel of the Chicago Tribune gave the film 1. 5 stars out of 4 and called it a "routine shocker" that "is notable only for indicating the kind of junk roles that talented actresses are forced to play in the movies. "  Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times wrote, "Before it maddeningly overreaches in a gratuitously evasive ending, 'Black Christmas' (opening today at selected theaters) is a smart, stylish Canadian-made little horror picture that is completely diverting... It may well be that its makers simply couldn't figure out how to end it. "  On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, Black Christmas holds a 71% approval rating based on 34 reviews, with an average rating of 6. 26/10. The critical consensus reads: "The rare slasher with enough intelligence to wind up the tension between bloody outbursts, Black Christmas offers fiendishly enjoyable holiday viewing for genre fans. ”  Heidi Martinuzzi of Film Threat called the film "innovative" and praised the leading actresses, Olivia Hussey and Margot Kidder.  TV Guide awarded the film three out of four stars, writing: "Although strictly standard fare, the material is elevated somewhat through Clark's skillful handling of such plot devices as obscene phone calls from the killer to the girls via the upstairs phone and a nicely handled twist ending, which provides a genuine shock. "  Author and film critic Leonard Maltin gave the film two and a half out of a possible four stars calling it "bizarre" but also praised Kidder's performance as a standout.  The Time Out film guide noted that the film "manages a good slice of old-fashioned suspense. "  Home media [ edit] Black Christmas has been released on DVD several times in North America. A 25th Anniversary edition was released in Canada on November 6, 2001 by Critical Mass.  This edition only contains the theatrical trailer as a bonus feature.  The following year, on December 3, 2002, Critical Mass released a Collector's Edition of the film on DVD with making-of documentaries, two audio commentary tracks, and reversible English and French cover artwork.  On December 5, 2006, Critical Mass released a third "Special Edition" DVD with a newly remastered transfer, two original scenes with newly-uncovered vocal tracks, a new documentary on the making of the film, and cast and crew interviews.

Roy Moore  Legacy [ edit] Black Christmas eventually gained a cult following, and is notable for being one of the earliest slasher films. It went on to inspire other slasher films, the biggest one of all being John Carpenter 's Halloween (which was apparently inspired by Clark suggesting what a Black Christmas sequel would be like).    Black Christmas has been included in multiple lists in various media outlets as one of the greatest horror films ever made. The film ranked No. 87 on Bravo 's The 100 Scariest Movie Moments.  It was ranked at No. 67 in IndieWire s The 100 Best Horror Movies of All Time, its entry stating " The plot sounds formulaic, but Black Christmas remains timeless thanks to its terrifying and elusive killer, "Billy, " whose backstory is never revealed, as well as a foreboding ending that doesn’t offer much hope for the film’s Final Girl".  Thrillist 's Scott Weinberg, in his article The 75 Best Horror Movies of All Time, ranked the film at No. 48.  Paul Schrodt of Esquire placed the film at No. 23 in his list of the 50 Best Horror Films of All Time.  In 2017, Complex magazine named Black Christmas the 2nd-best slasher film of all time.  The following year, Paste listed it the 3rd-best slasher film of all time,  while LA Weekly gave the film an honorable mention in their list of the greatest slasher villains of all time.  Olivia Hussey told Bravo during an interview about their 100 Scariest Movie Moments series, that when she met Steve Martin for the first time, he told her she starred in one of his favorite movies of all time. Hussey initially thought he was referring to Romeo and Juliet, but was surprised when Martin said it was Black Christmas and that he had seen the film 27 times.  [ edit] Novelization [ edit] A novelization of the film written by Lee Hays was published in 1976 by Popular Library.   Remakes [ edit] Black Christmas has been remade on two separate occasions, with the films differing significantly from the original. The first remake was directed by Glen Morgan and was released on December 25, 2006. It is loosely based on the original film, containing more graphic content and a focus into the past of Billy. Andrea Martin was the only original cast member to appear in the film, and Bob Clark served as an executive producer.  On June 13, 2019, a new remake was announced by Blumhouse Productions. Directed and written by Sophia Takal, co-written by April Wolfe and produced by Jason Blum. Principal photography began on June 24 and wrapped on July 31, 2019, in Dunedin, New Zealand.    Starring Imogen Poots and Cary Elwes, the film was released on December 13, 2019.

Моррис Композитор: Карл Зиттрер Художник: Карен Бромли Монтаж: Стэн Коул Время перед Рождеством. Волшебные мгновения грядущего праздника и волшебства. В особняке женского студенческого общежития, все готовятся к празднованию этой прекрасной даты. Елка наряжена, готовятся блюда на стол, в духовке доходит праздничный пирог. Что может нарушить подобную идиллию? Но, внезапно, в доме раздается серия странных и угрожающих звонков. Неизвестный, с той стороны провода, разговаривает вульгарно, с издевкой и угрозой. На следующее утро, все обнаруживают, что одна девушка пропала… Интересные факты: Сценарий был написан канадским писателем Роем Муром и основан на реальной серии убийств, произошедших в Квебеке в рождественский сезон.

In 2019 we had 2 of the best villains of all time. Thanos and joker and they we were pitch perfect movies. What a year 2019 was. 英語のコメント多いな… ↓そらまふうらさか好きな人👍. "If this movie doesn't make your skin crawl, it's on TOO TIGHT. " A 1974 horror film, remade twice ( in 2006 and 2019), and one of the Trope Makers for the slasher genre. The story is about a group of sorority girls who are staying over for Christmas break. Each one has their problems, but they don't know it's about to get worse, as a psychotic bastard sets up home in the Sorority House attic... And starts his reign of terror, terrorizing the girls with disturbing phone calls before killing them... The 1974 movie was directed by Bob Clark, who is better known for directing a very different Christmas-themed movie... Not to be confused with Silent Night, Deadly Night; another Christmas-themed slasher flick. (The fact that Warner Bros. released this one under the title Silent Night, Evil Night in some markets doesn't help. ) This film has examples of the following tropes: Accidental Murder: Jess beats Peter to death with a fireplace poker, thinking he was the killer. Adult Fear: Jess getting pregnant and wanting to abort the baby against Peter's wishes. Claire's father and the mother of the little girl who goes missing fearing (correctly) that their children have been murdered is also a potent source of fear for any parent. The Alcoholic: Barb drinks quite a bit in the film, and Mrs. Mac has a truly staggering number of booze stashes hidden around the house. Alone with the Psycho: The climax when Jess fears that she's alone with the killer and the end when she is. Ambiguously Jewish: Phyllis has a very Semitic appearance with a 'Jewfro', though her last name Carlson is Swedish in origin. Her actress Andrea Martin has often been mistaken for Jewish (in her autobiography she clarifies that she's Armenian). Ax-Crazy: Billy. In addition to being a depraved murderer, he trashes the attic for seemingly no reason. Bad Santa: Patrick swears in front of kids while dressed in a Santa suit. Bi the Way: Barb talks about having sex with men, and is seen looking at a porno magazine with a naked woman in it. Big Bad: Billy, the Ax-Crazy murderer terrorizing the sorority. Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Mrs. Mac makes jokes at other people's expense, but never to their face. Bolivian Army Ending: Mistaking him for the killer, Jess kills Peter. Then we find out that Billy is still alive and in the house, and Jess' fate is left up in the air. Book Safe: One of Mrs. Mac's many, many booze stashes. Bullying a Dragon: Lampshaded. When Barb insults Billy during his first phone call, he replies that he's going to kill her, and hangs up. The other sorority girls reprimand Barb for provoking someone who's potentially dangerous and unstable. Billy later makes good on his promise to kill Barb. Butt-Monkey: The incompetent Sergeant Nash is the butt of most of the verbal abuse and jokes in the movie. By the Lights of Their Eyes: Billy, during his attack on Barb. The Calls Are Coming from Inside the House: Much to Jess's horror, the calls are traced back to the very sorority house she's in. Canada, Eh? : Filmed on location in Toronto, there are plenty of characteristics 'Ehs' and 'Aboots' to go around. The character of Chris also plays hockey, for seemingly no other reason than to invoke this trope. Cat Scare: Surprisingly averted with the actual cat. Instead, we get Barb's asthma attack. Peter surprises Jess (and by extension the audience) immediately after she receives one of Billy's phone calls. The Cavalry Arrives Late: The police arrive when Jess is the only living person in the house left. If only it was so... Characters Dropping Like Flies: Averted, compared to later slasher films. The movie has a much smaller bodycount than modern audiences are used to. Cluster F-Bomb: Phyllis's boyfriend Patrick swears at every available opportunity. Barb too. She is the most foulmouthed of the girls. Cop Killer: Billy slashes the throat of the officer assigned to watch and protect the sorority girls. Country Matters: Billy's first onscreen call has him calling the sorority girls cunts. Creepy Basement: Or in this case, creepy attic where a killer is lurking with two of his corpses. Creepy Doll: Billy leaves one with Clare's corpse. Curiosity Killed the Cast: Clare and Mrs. Mac die looking for Mrs. Mac's perpetually lost cat, Claude. Phyllis is killed after spotting someone enter Barb's room. Deadpan Snarker: Barb doesn't take Billy's obscenity laden threats seriously and tells him to "stick [his] tongue in a wall socket". This leads to Billy delivering a death threat to her that he latter makes good on. Mrs. Mac makes jabs at people behind their backs. Death by Irony: Hard-drinking promiscuous Barb is murdered with a cristal figure of a unicorn - two symbols of purity. Death by Sex: Averted. The list of victims (in order of killing) goes; the virgin, the (middle aged) house mother, a little girl, the promiscuous party girl, a cop, the nice girl, the red herring and then (possibly) the final girl. And the final girl is having an abortion. And, unlike most later slashers, nobody is killed during -or just after- sex. Death of a Child: A plot point in the second act of the film is the disappearance of a thirteen-year-old girl called Janice, who turns up dead later. Downer Ending: Peter is mistaken for the killer, is killed by Jess and then we find out that the killer is still in the house with Jess. Evil Phone: As soon as the girls realize the caller is the killer, this trope comes in full force. Exact Eavesdropping: How the killer knows to say "just like having a wart removed" to Jess during one of the phone calls, providing more false fuel against Peter. Extreme Mêlée Revenge: After doing poorly at his recital, Peter smashes his piano. Billy smashes random objects in the attic during an emotional breakdown of some kind. Face Framed in Shadow: This is the closest the audience gets to seeing Billy's face. Final Girl: Jess, who is the last of the sorority girls to confront Billy at the end. No, she is not a virgin, but as previously stated, this movie was a trope maker before Halloween (1978) codified this Slasher convention. Flipping the Bird: Mrs. Mac, behind Mr. Harrison's back. A picture in the house also depicts an old lady giving it. Freeze-Frame Bonus: In one scene where Jess is talking with a detective about one of the phone calls she just had, Billy's shadow can be seen in the background. Freudian Excuse: It's hinted that Billy has one. They should never have left him alone with Agnes! Genki Girl: Barb - in a drunken, promiscuous way. The Ghost: Agnes. Despite Billy ranting about her during his phone calls, we never see her or understand why she's significant to Billy. Good Girls Avoid Abortion: Averted. The idea that the girls are getting killed as a result of Jess's vengeful boyfriend gets proven false. And she's the final girl. Note that the film was made very shortly after abortion was fully legalized by Roe v. Wade. Gory Discretion Shot: Barb being stabbed with the unicorn figurine isn't directly shown. The dead body of the 13-year-old girl is not shown, but given how other characters react, we can infer it's pretty bad. Harassing Phone Call: Billy constantly calls the girls with dirty language and wanting to do perverted things to them. It annoys the ladies until the kills start to pile up. Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Barb is the life of the party at the beginning, and continues to drink over the course of the film. Harmful to Minors: Patrick and Barb swear like sailors in front of young children (Patrick even does it while dressed as Santa). A little while later, Barb gives one of the kids alcohol. The Heart: Phyllis. The other girls aren't too concerned about Claire's father, as they just assume she's fine, but Phyllis bursts into tears, realizing she's dead and feeling horribly for her father. She also tries the hardest to help find Claire and is always willing to be at another girl's side to lend support. Hell Is That Noise: Billy's phone calls are horrifying to listen to, replete with horrible wailing and animalistic moaning. Honor Before Reason: After Jess learns that the villain is inside the house, she could make an easy exit to safety, but instead frantically refuses to leave Phyllis and Barb and goes upstairs to find them. Hooks and Crooks: Mrs. Mac's death involves her getting a swinging hook thrown into her head. Horror Doesn't Settle for Simple Tuesday: One of many slasher films to take place on Christmas. Karma Houdini: Billy, the killer, is still alive at the end of the movie, and remains uncaught. I'll Kill You! : After Barb insults him over the phone, Billy calmly states "I'm going to kill you", before hanging up. Improvised Weapon: A unicorn figurine for the killer and a fireplace poker for one of his victims. Ironic Nursery Tune: Billy sings Daddy's Gone A-Huntin to Claire's corpse, plus there's all the stock Christmas tunes. Jerkass: Barb is mean when drunk. Lady Drunk: Mrs. Mac always has a bottle handy, but she tries to have at least a little more class than some of the girls she watches. Laughing Mad: Billy laughs creepily and for no apparent reason during some of his phone calls. Meganekko: Phyllis is smart, gentle, caring, and wears a big pair of glasses. Misplaced Accent: It's not entirely clear why Jess, an American college student, would have actress Olivia Hussey 's English accent. The accent itself is never commented upon in the film proper, and as such it isn't entirely clear whether her character is intended to be an English expatriate, or if the actress simply isn't bothering with an accent. Missing Mom: Barb's drinking problems are caused by her distant mother. Missing White Woman Syndrome: Averted at first. Sergeant Nash dismisses the concerns of the missing Clare's friends, telling them she's probably just shacked up somewhere with her boyfriend. Mistaken for Murderer: Peter is killed after Jess assumes he's the killer. Mood Whiplash: At one point the movie transitions from a comical scene of Sgt. Nash being made fun of to Peter and Jess having an argument on her decision to have an abortion. Murderer P. O. V. : The audience gets to see Billy's view, most notably when he has a complete breakdown and trashes the attic. Noodle Incident: Billy keeps mentioning an incident with a person named Agnes. Who Agnes is and what happened between her and Billy is only alluded to in the film. Nothing Is Scarier: We're never shown or told exactly what Billy (if it was him) did to Janice, the little girl. The very ending where Billy continues to call a sedated Jess as the camera pans away from the house. It seems to be building up to a scream from the house where Billy makes his final strike, only it never happens. Instead the credits roll in complete silence, save for the phone continuing to ring. Billy himself is never directly seen in the movie. The closest we get is a few shots of his face framed in shadow. Novelization: It's ◊ rare as Hell. Oh, Crap! : Lt. Fuller's reaction to learning the calls are coming from inside the house. Jess has a similar reaction upon getting the news. Parting Words Regret: Heavily implied when Barb has a drunken rant in which she accuses people of believing she drove Claire away with her harsh words. The truth is that this is what she (Barb) thinks, but doesn't want to admit it to herself. Phone-Trace Race: When the calls get creepier, they decide to trace them. Plucky Comic Relief: Mrs. Mac and Barb, when they're drunk. Sgt. Nash's dimwittedness also provides laughs. Police are Useless: Double Subverted. When Claire is first reported missing, Sargent Nash is largely dismissive of it and insinuates that she's run off with a boy. Likewise when Jess reports Billy's obscene phone calls he's equally as dismissive. When Nash's superior gets wind of this he chews him out for this and takes the reports completely seriously. He has the sorority's phone lines tapped in order to trace the calls and posts an officer outside the building for their protection. Billy dispatches the officer posted outside without incident, and by the time the police realize that he's been in the house all along, it's too late for them to prevent Jess getting attacked, then killing Peter in a panic. At the film's very end they neglect to check the house's attic, leaving the bodies of Mrs. Mac and Claire undiscovered and causing Billy to get away with the whole thing and possibly kill Jess. Pun-Based Title: It's a subversion of the song White Christmas, here black not standing for African-American, but for evil... or for utter despair. Rapunzel Hair: Olivia Hussey's trademark waist-length hair is on full display here. Jess wears her hair down for most of the film. Red Eyes, Take Warning: Billy is revealed to have them in two particularly creepy scenes. Red Herring: Peter is mistaken as the killer. Reaction Shot: The camera gets a few of these from the uncomfortable group as they listened in on Billy's obscene phone call at the start of the movie. Say My Name: The killer calls Barb "Agnes" before he kills her. Scare Chord: The film employs a couple of these in shots featuring Claire's corpse. Screaming Woman: When Janice's body is found. Serial Killer: Billy, since there's the minor implication he committed some rapes and murders before the ones featured in the film. Shot in the Ass: A paranoid farmer shoots a police officer in the ass after spotting him skulking around on his property. Shout-Out: The film's setting of Bedford is an Homage to It's a Wonderful Life. Slashed Throat: Officer Jennings is found with one. Spoiler Cover: The cover depicts Claire's corpse after having been killed by Billy. Soundtrack Dissonance: The Christmas carolers during Barb's murder. The Stoic: Mr. Harrison puts up with the wild behavior of the sorority girls with emotionless stoicism. Team Mom: Mrs. Mac, who is literally the house mother. Also, Phyllis, to a lesser extent. Tempting Fate: After Phil is scared by a member of the search team looking for the killer of the child in the park, she jokes "I'd rather face the killer! ". Billy ends up killing Phil only minutes later. Third-Person Person: In all of his phone calls, Billy speaks in third person, and in fact seems to be talking as if he were other people talking about him. Tomboyish Name: Phyllis is nicknamed Phil by all the other girls, though she's not much of a tomboy in nature. Too Dumb to Live: Jess makes a few poor decisions during the climax: When the police finally realize that the calls are coming directly from the house, the dispatcher calls Jess and tells her to quietly leave as soon as possible. Instead of listening, she refuses and demands to know why. When he finally relents and tells her the truth, she still doesn't leave the house (even after he urgently demands for her to leave) and instead tries to wake everyone up to get them to all exit, catching Billy's attention as he's already killed everyone else still in the house. Token Wholesome: Clare is the one girl in the sorority house who isn't sexually active or promiscuous, and is uncomfortable with Barb's attempts at provoking Billy. Not that that does anything to save her. Trashcan Bonfire: Clare's father, Jess and Chris are warming up to one when the little girl's body is found in the park. Trope Maker: For Slasher Movies. This was a first for many, including the Final Girl Twisted Christmas: If you couldn't tell from the title, Billy's murders are happening on Christmas. Unbuilt Trope: This movie has a lot less in common than one would think with all of the slasher movies that followed after it. The killer does not wear a mask or have any particular "gimmick" to his crimes, the killer is not a silent murderer but a talkative, perverted creep, the police respond reasonably effectively, there's much less Gorn and fewer overall murders than in many other slashers, we learn absolutely nothing about the killer's motivations, backstory, or appearance, and the Final Girl is definitely not a virgin, nor does anyone else suffer Death by Sex. The Unfought: As Peter is a Red Herring, Jess never has a confrontation with Billy beyond seeing his eye through a keyhole. The Un Reveal: We never know who Billy is, why he's murdering people, or even what he looks like. Vader Breath: At the very beginning, as Billy closes in on the sorority house. Vague Age: Peter is implied to be older than the others; he mentions being at the Conservatory for eight years, meaning he could be as old as thirty. His actor was thirty-eight during production. Voice Changeling: Billy changes his voice quite a bit during his phone calls. On two occasions he also mimics the house cat, Claude, in order to lure in his victims. What Happened to the Mouse? : The fate of Claude, the cat. While his meowing is used to lure more than one character to their deaths, we never actually find out what happened to him. Would Hurt a Child: A little girl reported missing and is found dead later. It's heavily implied that this is one of Billy's victims. It's also implied through his insane ramblings that it may not have been the first time he hurt a child (he keeps referring to a baby and something horrible happening between himself and a person named Agnes).
Melissa was my favorite character. The girl that tried opening the window to get out when Agnes was about to kill her and did, with the skates. It's a damn shame. Her and the blonde were the best ones in my opinion. Kelly & Melissa should of survived.

She say period and I say perodd
What kind of JOB do I get in return? Have I ever told how much I love Lance. Sorry Tom. 😝. 45 years ago black Christmas first came out as silent night evil night and soon became a cult classic that inspired halloween. Bob Clark later produced the remake in 2006 which did ok. Here we are 13 years later and a new vision of the classic updated for the iPhone age is out from the house of blum and is now pg 13. It's so good.
Yeah looks really advertising to men no wonder this is doing so well in the cinemas.
Okay, I've seen the reviews on here saying it's terrible, had no plot, terrible script, blah blah blah, but I haven't seen anyone talk about the main issue I've got with this film. And the reviews saying it didn't have a plot are incorrect, to a degree. There was a plot, a paper thin BS plot, but it was plot nonetheless. I understand this is meant to be a female empowerment movie, and that's great. I love strong female characters. One of my favorite movies is the Descent. However, the antagonists in this movie are a fraternity of men who feel that women are gaining too much ground, fighting for their rights and messages to such an extent, and need to be taken down a peg. They feel women's rightful place is at men's beck and call. That, to me, is the biggest piece of crap I have ever seen in cinema in the last ten years, at least. I can't believe that this even got greenlit. I see on social media about women's strength, their quest for equality, and I think how far we have come from the archaic thoughts of long ago. Then, I go see Black Christmas, and I leave the movie ashamed I spent money on it. To put this into perspective, I'm a Regal theater goer on the unlimited movie plan, so I spent a whopping 50 cents to see it and I almost asked for my money back. The only reason I didn't ask for a refund was the performances were ok. The acting is not going to win awards but the cast worked alright with the POS they were given. Oh and not only was women's equality peed on, but there was a subplot about the lead character getting raped by one of the frat guys, cuz why not? I guess they figured they were already getting their licks in, so why not go for broke. I hope that guys will walk out of there as insulted and disappointed as I did, realizing that this picture and it's ideas belong in the 1950s or something. But I know there are still small-minded individuals who will watch this and think it's the right idea. Now maybe the intent to show the women rising up at the end to fight back their oppressors was supposed to be poignant and uplifting, but the delivery was not good enough for this to be represented. What it showed at the end was nothing more than payback or vengeance. There was no empowerment or positive message here. It was girls getting killed that turned into girls doing the killing because it's a movie. Black Christmas is a black mark of a picture that shouldn't have been made, at least not how it did, and needs to be forgotten.
Puleez! As a southerner I have to say, if youre going to make us the Ultimate Evil at least be somewhat researched and use a statue of John C. Calhoun in your lazy remakes. How aren't you on tour oml I would die to watch you perform. Czarne ÅwiÄta de. Czarne c5 9bwi c4 99ta remix. When u hand me an Oscar Can u introduce me as joker. Czarne c5 9bwi c4 99ta review.

Madthedj December 22, 2010 at 1:05 am I have both DVD editions of this film, having become fascinated with its production when I discovered it years ago. It was shot in my city of Toronto, Canada, and stars some classic actors well-known to Canadian viewers, like Margot Kidder and John Saxon, and future SCTV alumnus comedienne Andrea Martin. The college exterior shots were at the University of Toronto. Other landmarks pop up here and there. (Side note, even today, perhaps more so these days, Toronto doubles as New York and Chicago quite often in “American” movies…as recently as “Kickass”…but I digress). And yeah, the connection to “Halloween” is by far a seriously neglected fact when so-called horror fans talk about the evolution of the modern slasher film. It’s getting more recognition now, but (as noted in the review) without a killer-personality (like Myers, Voorhees, Kruger or Leatherface) to attach to it, it’s been overshadowed by its successors. Truly, though, if “Halloween” is the father of modern slashers, it’s children are “Friday The 13th” and “A Nightmare On Elm Street” (which also has John Saxon, lest we forget). “Halloween”‘s parents, the grandparents of the modern slasher: equal parts “Black Christmas” and “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre”. Great review, James, and on behalf of Canadian horror fans, thanks for giving “Black Christmas” its due! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
