Join us for a special holiday episode where we discuss one of the most effective, memorable, and enduring Xmas horror films of all time.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE (SHOW NOTES FROM YOUR HOST):
Christmas brings warm feelings to most as we celebrate with loved ones and reflect back on the year. Receiving gifts is fun, but I personally love that feeling I get giving someone a thoughtful gift, something they never knew they always wanted. Christmas is a time for honoring our inner child and embracing the best of humanity.
But there’s a darker side to Christmas. There are those who struggle due to grief, loneliness, seasonal stress and depression, financial worries, or just not feeling jolly for any number of reasons. Sadly, the holidays don’t make all our problems go away. In fact, they may even exasperate our deepest fears and worries. For some truly troubled souls, being surrounded by so much cheer can be a trigger, bringing out inner demons.
The original Black Christmas (1974) is one of the greatest Christmas Horror films of all time. Made in a peak era of horror films, it’s a timeliness gem that’s elevated by its expert filmmaking, core-shaking score, compelling story, effective tension, and chilling atmosphere. It’s the kind of film that gives viewers plenty to discuss and think about it after the credits roll — as thought-provoking as it is terrifying.
This Christmas, watch one of the best and most influential holiday horror films of all time — and give thanks your Christmas isn’t anywhere near this Black.
