Black Christmas

Black Christmas ★★

I liked the idea (for the first half) of this movie, but it just went off the rails. I should have just walked out when the friends pressured the main character into dancing on stage in front of her rapist (yay sisterhood?), but I wanted to give the rest of the movie a chance & thought maybe it was just a weird mistake.

I didn't like the reveal toward the end, and everything was so over-the-top. For a movie dealing with heavy topics, there was little to no character development. I don't normally want character development in a slasher, but they took it in a heavy and slow direction. I just wanted a goddamn Christmas slasher with good feminist vibes, and I got this instead. Ugh.

THIS BETTER BE THE LAST BLACK CHRISTMAS REMAKE.
