Black Christmas

Black Christmas ★★★

Holy cow. That was a lot.

I really appreciate the intent behind the story. The issues the movie tackled are serious and should be talked about. The message itself was good. Unfortunately, I feel like the execution could have been a lot better. The dialogue was also lacking at times.

The beginning and the middle weren't the greatest, either. The plot moved way too slowly. There was no tension in the killing scenes, either. Usually, when watching a slasher, the bloody stuff should be the best and most interesting. That wasn't the case here. Then, there was the finale, which was pretty crazy. It finally got juicier there, it was more thrilling and exciting to watch. That one reveal of the reason behind all the mess was incredibly lame, though. I don't want to spoil anything, but it really wasn't necessary. Anyway.

Imogen Poots was so cool. Loved her as the main character. The other performances were okay.

In the end, I don't think it deserves all the hate and horrendous reviews. It really wasn't that bad. (Also, look at that poster. It's gorgeous.)
