Getting impaled by a unicorn to the sound of carolers singing Silent Night is probably not how you want to spend Christmas Eve. Black Christmas claims its victims in a sorority house haunted by creepy phone calls, demonic noises, bodies eerily shrouded in plastic wrap, and one perverted psycho killer whose voice alone is enough to chill your blood.
When an unidentified caller keeps harassing your entire sorority house with obscene things you can only half-understand, you should get the Hell out of there even if it is freezing cold outside. But like just about every horror movie, the victims say F you to logic and stay in place. Because of that, the murders stack up with one victim being dragged screaming by a hook, and another being bludgeoned to death like something out of a medieval torture scene. Never mind the one suffocated to death by plastic wrap and left next to the window like the vacant face of a doll staring out into the night.
For a Christmas themed slasher, I think Black Friday serves its purpose and would recommend it for the following reasons: you got dead bodies, blood, AND it’s topped off with some Christmas cheer… sort of.
But what do you think?
