Black Christmas

Black Christmas ★½

A mediocre slasher film with a strong feminist theme - too strong. It tries so hard to focus on feminism that it completely fails to deliver decent scares, a compelling story or even any form of character development. I won't deny that the film starts off promisingly enough and had me jeering at the idea of "men," but it gets so heavy-handed that I began to doubt not only if this was remotely realistic to legitimate social issues, but that this would appeal to anyone at all, as it alienates fans of the original, fans of classic slashers, and people hopeful for the future balanced wellbeing of humanity.
