Firstly i will point out that the original film Black Christmas has always been one of my favourite films,When it was released it was quite an original film.It was one of the first films that went on to be labelled "Slasher Films"- Indeed at the time it was widely stated that later films such as Halloween,Friday 13th etc stole a lot of the idea's from the original Black Christmas. I have had this remake for some time, I have tried many times to watch it all the way through.I have finally watched it all the way through, I feel i have wasted 80 minutes of my life.This film has very poor acting/actors,It also has no atmosphere,I fully admit that the original film may now seem a bit dated but watch the original and take into account that it was at the time of release a very original film and also it is now more than 30 years old.Please watch the original film and give this awful remake a very wide berth.

Many compare this film with the film it is a remake of but this condemns black Xmas strait away so dont do that!
The characters are semi-likeable however this film falls into the same deadly pitfall that the descent fell into. You cant tell them apart.Some look almost identical yet some you dont even realize exist until they die.
The plot is grainy. It is obviously following a typical slasher plan however silly and unnecessary things are thrown in just to add lines to the script. The killer having a rare liver disease that made him yellow? Please.
Deaths (this contains spoilers) the deaths in black xmas are very hard to call. Its a pretty sick and engaging idea to half suffocate someone with a bin bag and then stab, or rip out their eyeball but this is good for 1 death scene and is overused (Why the hell is the killer eating eyeballs anyway?) anyway the deaths that dont involve eyeballs or bin bags are decent at best. The icicle through the head gag was priceless but felt out of place as the icicle doesnt fall from very high and isnt that sharp.

In short black xmas is for someone who can sit down in front of a formulaic slasher film and not care about minute plot details. Its an easy movie to sit through but a hard movie to say that you enjoyed afterwards.

Well the story line is as follows.

In the 70's, the boy Billy is born with yellow skin due to a liver disease and his dysfunctional mother rejects him. Later he witnesses his mother and her lover killing his beloved father and burying him in the basement of their house, and he is locked in the attic alone along his childhood. When he is a teenager, he is sexually abused by his mother and she has a baby girl called Agnes. During Christmas, the deranged Billy escapes from his imprisonment, kills his mother and stepfather and blinds one eye of Agnes. He is declared insane and his sister is sent to an orphanage. In the present days, Billy escapes from the Clark Sanatorium to spend Christmas with his family. Meanwhile, his former house is the Delta Alpha Kappa sorority house in the campus of the Clement University, and the housemother and the sisters Kelli Presley, Dana, Lauren Hannon, Megan, Heather, Megan Helms, Melissa and Eve Agnew are preparing the house for Christmas party in a stormy night.

i would have to say this is one of the better remakes of the stalk and slash films.firstly the acting was pretty darn good and it did not come across low budget or trashy (which some of these remakes have) the kill scenes were pretty decent and it had a slightly different ending compared to the original but i wont spoil it! glen Morgan directed this and in my opinion hes a pretty decent director and writer he was involved in FD1 AND FD3 and there pretty decent movies and the xfiles film which is also pretty cool! i did like the death scenes in this even though they are pretty similar to the original they are still well done with a appropriate amount of gore.

Black Christmas essentially follows the story of the original, whilst adding some very unnecessary characters and replacing atmosphere with gore. It's similar in a way to Rob Zombie's Halloween, in the original we know very little about Michael Myers and it makes the character creepy. The same is done with the Black Christmas remake, instead of knowing very little about Billy, we now have a whole lot of back story that explains who he is and why he's a maniac, taking away all mystery about him. Instead of a faceless killer, we now have a mildly interesting back story that involves incest and cannibalism.

All the things that made the original a classic are now gone, but this film isn't completely terrible. Most of the gore is done well despite the fact it's definitely gratuitous, the acting is pretty good by an almost entirely female cast. Most of the girls are attractive, Mary Elizabeth Winstead is absolutely gorgeous. There's also Michelle Trachtenberg who played Buffy's sister in Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Katie Cassidy who has now appeared in three horror movie remakes being When A Stranger Calls, A Nightmare On Elm Street and this. There's a brief scene of nudity with a traditional classic horror movie shower scene, also the house mother is played by Andrea Martin who played Phyl in the original.

Many scenes from the original are no longer present, all the stuff outside of the house like the scenes at the police station and the missing girl are left out, and apart from a few scenes at the sanitarium for the criminally insane, the action takes place in the house until the last ten minutes. Most of the deaths seem to be a slight variation on the last, with at least half of the kills being done with a good old-fashioned eye gouge.
