Black Christmas

Black Christmas ½

Originally I was gonna give this movie one and a half stars but the more I think about it, the more I see it’s flaws.

This is the single most disappointing film of 2019. Even more disappointing than the Lion King remake which was also very disappointing for me. Black Christmas (2019) is basically “men are trash” The Movie without any clever writing to back up it’s themes and on top of that it’s not even a slasher. 

I wanted this movie to be good or at least entertaining but it’s neither of those things. It just seems like an SJW version of Get Out. It’s like the writer watched Get Out and thought “let’s do a downgraded version of that with bad acting and no subtlety whatsoever”. It’s one of those pieces of media that prioritizes it’s themes and symbolisms (blunt ones at that) while everything else takes a back seat.

This is pure speculation on my part but it seems like whoever wrote most of this just used a script for another movie they had lying around and just made mild changes to make it seem like it’s a Black Christmas remake but it clearly isn’t. It even has this weird supernatural element that comes COMPLETELY OUT OF NOWHERE.

And on top of that the themes of this film are just misguided and mean-spirited in my opinion. It comes off as preachy and obnoxious. 
The only good things I can name from this film are the visuals which are pretty good and also the ending. I actually liked how the main character at first looked happy looking up and out of nowhere looked terrified for some unexplained reason. 

I’m saddened that the title of Black Christmas was attached to this shitty film that was clearly supposed to be another film.

I do not recommend this movie at all. It has ZERO entertainment value. It’s not even laughably bad. It’s honestly and insult to fans of Black Christmas.
