Old Blacky Babes,
This review is from: Black Christmas  [DVD] (DVD)
Unlike some other horror movies from the 1970's (Halloween, Friday the 13th, Suspiria) Back Christmas has unfortunately become a bit of a lost gem. I must admit that I had not seen or heard of Black Christmas until very recently when recommended by a friend.. but I'm really glad I've discovered it now. It reminded me of how well they used to make horror movies in the 1970's, every shot in this lost classic keeps you well and truly on a knifes edge. The film may not be as gory as it's brothers and sisters from that decade, but it certainly makes up for it in suspense and JUMPS! and it hasn't dated to badly either after more than thirty years. From the horridly twisted telephone calls to the scary as hell eye that look's through the crack in the door.. there's plenty here for all fans of the slasher/stalker genre.. see it NOW.
The Duvada also comes with some very informative documentaries that give you a detailed account as to how the film was made. Using interviews from producers and actors, even revisiting some of the main locations.. there's more here than most highly regarded horror movie packages.

Friday the 13th came out in 1980, not in the 70s.

What the hell is a Duvada? (As in your review, 'The Duvada also comes with some very informative documentaries that give you a detailed account as to how the film was made. Using interviews from producers and actors, even revisiting some of the main locations.. ')
I purchased this item specifically due to your mention of 'informative documentaries', only to find there aren't any!
