Black Christmas (2006)
Director: Glen Morgan
Main Stars: Michelle Trachtenberg, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Lacey Chabert, Kristen Cloke, Andrea Martin, Crystal Lowe, Robert Mann
Storyline: A maniac heads home for Christmas which is now a sorority house and he begins a murdering rampage.
Review (Spoils): Billy is one demented kid. He was born with a liver disease, his mother rejected him, he watched his mother and lover kill his father and he locked in the attic. During this he abused more by his mother and he finally is hospitalized after he kills his mother and lover and blinds his sister Anges.
Many years later Billy escapes and heads back home which is now a sorority house. It is Christmas Eve and he starts to kill them one by one. This movie tries to grasps the main attraction of the original film with the bag over the head scene and follows with snow globe bashing, eye ripping, phone threats, gardening tools, severed heads, icicle impaling, ice skate, eye stabbing, neck snapping, knife slashing and of course a Christmas tree impaling.
Why this film should have never been made???
Ok first off the acting is average, yes we have some beautiful ladies in this film but it is lacking in acting. The plot is all over the place and tells too much and leaves nothing for the audience. The death scenes start to become beyond dumb, icicle, skate and Christmas tree really? The over did the most classic scene of the bag over the head with the rocking chair. They turned the great Billy character into a joke. The only good part of the film is the babes and the ode to Andrea Martin.
Rating: Don’t waste your time with this. Black Christmas was one of the greatest horror slasher films of its time and a gem and this piece of garbage is a disgrace to it. This film should of never been re-done and go and watch the original for a true gem.
