For one ordinary, remote sorority house, the holiday season is going to bring an unwanted visitor, and many of the girls will be going home for Christmas—dead. Margot Kidder (Superman), Olivia Hussey (Romeo & Juliet) and Andrea Martin (SCTV) are among the students in danger; John Saxon (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Enter the Dragon) leads the cops trying to close in on the enigmatic killer. Arguably the first holiday-themed "slasher" thriller ever made (predating Halloween by four years), Black Christmas (a.k.a. Silent Night, Evil Night) is still one of the best, with stylistic touches and a creepy overtone matched by very few horror movies since. Like the ads said, if this movie doesn't make your skin crawl...it's on too tight! Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey) co-stars. Strange but true: director Bob Clark would revisit Christmas territory nine years later with the warm and lovable movie A Christmas Story!
