You better watch out, you better not cry……you better not pout because there’s a really good Christmas horror movie that you need to watch this year! I know, I know – it’s Halloween season. But I had the pleasure of finally sitting down and watching Craig Anderson’s Red Christmas and it indeed got me into the Christmas horror movie spirit!
Mmmmmm. Can you smell that? It’s the delicious smell of your favorite Christmas cookies cooking in the oven. You have to give them time to cook though. Don’t take them out too soon! Oh – and you might want to get some extra frosting to mask the taste of the human flesh. Yuck.
On this week’s Monday Bloody Monday, I’m going to 2006 for one of the most controversial horror remakes of all time: Black Christmas. Why so controversial? Because the original Black Christmas in 1974 is an unheralded classic that was the blueprint for some of your favorite slasher movies that would come later on. But enough about my crush on the original, the remake had one scene that was just disgusting and over-the-top enough to get my interest. Click the link below to watch Billy do some damage to his 8-year-old sister Agnes and to his mother that raped him to be able to conceive Agnes. Yeah – that really happens. Yuck.
You know who would really be the life of your holiday party this year? Billy from 1974’s classic slasher, Black Christmas! He would definitely have you covered if you needed the following: some plastic bags for whatever reason, an obscene phone call that emphasizes the word ‘cunt’, and a creepy peeping eyeball.
Speaking of creepy – not many movies creep me out more than Bob Clark’s, Black Christmas. A definite pioneer in the slasher genre, it manages to make your skin crawl just off of the opening sequence alone. But the scene with Billy’s aforementioned creepy eye takes the creepy cake for sure. So let’s all watch together as Jess (Olivia Hussey) runs frantically through the house and encounters Billy and his eerie peeping peeper.
