“It’s the ‘70s, there’s shag carpeting, there’s a sorority house filled with c-words, a killer crawls in through the attic… and things go awry.” – Carnage’s five second summaries.
Black Christmas is the holiday slasher you never knew you needed in your life. Whether you agree it’s the first slasher or not, join Jess, Barb, Phyl, Claire and Mrs Mack for Christmas break. We start out from the killer’s POV as he sneaks into a sorority house through the attic, then meet the girls when an obscene phone call is answered.
The ladies have been getting them for a while, but from everyone’s distress when Barb’s egging the voice on backfires, it’s clear things are escalating. Barb upsets Claire and she disappears upstairs, never to be seen from again. When Claire doesn’t show up to meet her father the next day, the ladies try to get the police involved, but it takes more phone calls and some additional pressure on the cops to get any help. As the ladies and the surrounding town begin searching, one by one, more sisters disappear.
Who will be the final girl? Will they ever trace the lewd calls or find Claire before they’re all gone? Is this a 70’s classic, or a secret dud? Listen on to find out!
Check out the trailer for Black Christmas below, which is currently streaming on Shudder. And be sure to tune in next week for Scream 3, currently streaming on Amazon Prime!
