Review Glen Morgan's Black Christmas isn't just a remake of the 1974 cult classic, it's a deliriously entertaining love letter to the entire genre of 70's and 80's slasher films. With its highly creative murder sequences and twisted sense of humor, it plays not like a slasher movie as most of them actually were (since the majority of entries in the genre were fairly idiotic), but as aging fans remember them through the forgiving haze of nostalgia. It's like Prom Night or My Bloody Valentine reimagined by filmmakers of genuine wit and style...If Final Destination was an inventive variation on the "dead teenager" formula pioneered by Friday the 13th, Black Christmas is to the whole genre of slasher films what Kill Bill was to 70's grindhouse flicks--a pastiche that is smarter and funnier than the movies it's ripping off.

Review It's debatable whether the original 1974 "Black Christmas" is, as its most rabid fans claim, the mother of all slasher movies. But there can be no argument regarding the scant merits of its slapdash, soporifically routine remake, suitable only for the least discriminating of gore hounds. The new-but-unimproved "Black Christmas" opened Dec. 25 without press previews, dropped into megaplexes like a lump of coal into a naughty child's stocking...The original "Black Christmas" established many slasher-movie conventions, including the menacing phone caller. But that isn't the only reason why so much of the remake is familiar. Despite some game efforts by members of the ensemble cast -- including Andrea Martin, a vet of the original, here cast as the sorority house mother -- the characters are too generic to generate a rooting interest, and the plot is too predictable for Morgan to muster suspense.

Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly ...wittily gothic...absurdist, chain-reaction intricacy of the "Final Destination" deaths.
John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press One of the best horror movies of the year.
Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle ...an evocative, effective entry into the holiday blood-spray subgenre...
