5.0 out of 5 stars Best watched in the dark! 30 Aug 2006
Format:DVD
Curl up on the sofa and turn off the lights...A classic 1970's horror. If you're a fan of horror flicks from this era then this is a good one for you. Dark and creepy with a few good scares this really is one of the better movies in this genre. I really enjoyed Black Christmas, thinking it would be quite naff, I was pleasantly surprised...give it go it's worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Christmas Haunting 11 Mar 2006
Format:DVD
In 1976, a friend recommended this film. Although she outlined the story, I went to see it anyway. I've never been so scared and never has a film left such a lasting impression... 30 years on and I am still talking about it. Maybe, as a young student at the time, I could empathize with the girls in the house. The director certainly knew how to capture the tension and create fear in the minds of the viewers. The fear of not knowing was such a fitting angle for this film. I dare you to watch it alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars You Better Watch Out..........! 2 Dec 2007
By Scots Lass TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Made in 1974, Black Christmas was one of the first "slasher" movies and on this dvd the print has been perfectly restored with modern sound added - although purists can watch it with the original mono sound if they choose.

Set at Christmas time, the story has a group of university female students living together in a house on campus where they are subjected to obscene telephone calls. Mouthy, drink loving Babs (Margot Kidder) likes to answer the caller back, but sensible Jess (Olivia Hussey) feels he should not be encouraged.

Before long the girls and their house mother are being murdered one by one. The suspense which builds to the killings is truly chilling and, unlike modern films of the type, there is no reliance of blood and gore to create horror. As the police battle to trace the source of the calls the girls must stand together and face the terror which has come to their door.

I suspect the 18 rating is caused by the frequent use of the C word in the obscene phone calls. There is little gore or blood and without the language this could easily have been rated 15.

Well worth purchasing for fans of a well made, well paced horror drama which keeps the viewer engaged with lively characters and a suspense filled plot.....

Just hope your phone doesn't ring while your watching!

5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T WATCH THIS ONE ALONE 29 May 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is a real classic horror film,a must for all horror fans.
I cannot believe this film is not more well known.it has great suspence, and a real atmosphere, truly chilling.
I only found out about this film when it was re released on dvd, it was originally made in 1974 and has much more impact than any of these new horrors.
This film has a fantastic story line, it will leave you checking over your shoulder and your loft (if you have one). My advice is do not watch this on your own or at night, as you probably won't be able to sleep!!!
There arn't really any bloody scenes in this movie, which is great as i think it would have spoiled it slightly.
Sometimes what you don't see can be a hell of a lot more eerie than what you do see.
All in all a fantastic horror!!!! you've got to see it!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Atmospheric Classic 12 July 2007
Format:DVD
"Black Christmas" is often cited as the pioneering feature of the slasher genre, paving the way for a succession of celluloid knife-wielding maniacs via John Carpenter's "Halloween", released four years later. However, slasher fans are likely to be disappointed with "Black Christmas" since it mainly relies on the use of suspense and atmosphere for its shocks rather than sickly violence and gore.

Of course, for mainstream audiences, this makes it rather superior to genuine slasher fare. Director Bob Clark utilises the principle that true fear arises from what we don't see and don't know - the audience never get to see a tangible perpetrator. Unlike the tiresome backstories of invincible homicidal maniacs which diffuse rather than heighten the fear factor in the typical slasher plot - there is absolutely no exposition hinting what the source of death could be. The director's insistence on ambiguity lends the macabre proceedings a demonic, supernatural quality, during which the audience are invited to imagine and speculate feverishly without any relief for their trouble.

The unerringly wooden but undeniably beautiful lead Olivia Hussey ("Romeo & Juliet") suspects her very melodramatic, creepy and bizarre boyfriend Keir Dullea, to whom all the circumstantial evidence points to. Whether Dullea has put in a great performance or is simply this creepy in real life isn't clear - I certainly wondered whether HAL wasn't actually rather justified in his attempt to jettison him in space in "2001: A Space Odyssey". There are better performances from the then unknown likes of Margot Kidder and Andrea Martin as Hussey's fellow sorority girls, and a guest star turn from B-Movie legend John Saxon ("Enter the Dragon") as a baffled Police Lieutenant.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Agnes, it's me Billy..." 19 Feb 2004
By M. JONES VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Whoever Billy is, you never see his name amongst those classic horror icons (Jason, Freddy, Michael). But really, they all have NOTHING on "Billy". I came across Black Christmas by chance a few years ago on TV and was totally freaked out by it. I'd seen plenty of 70s slashers but never had I seen (or heard) such a scary villian who attacks with a phone more than anything else.
The film opens on a Sorority house that is clearing our for Christmas. However, as some girls leave, one man enters... What starts out as something harmless (some VERY obscene phone calls) soon becomes terrifying as a lunatic begins to kill of those in the house.
What makes this so chilling (like many slashers) is the gradual build up and increasing death toll aswell as the hard-to-listen-to phone threats. However, what sets it apart is how a lot is left unearthed, unanswered or unknown. Bodies are never found, killings are never shown (too much) and we never QUITE know who "Billy" was. I love it when a film is never totally resolved.
The characters are all likable and well-performed, including Olivia Hussey's Jess (the lead) and Margot Kidder's Barbara (the fun-loving foul-mouthed girl). But the scene stealer is "Billy" who acts out twisted domestics in the attic with dead bodies and muliple personalities. These moments are definately the most chilling and will certainly keep you awake at night.
Enjoy.
