Black Christmas (2006) Review:
The travesty that is the remake of Black Christmas is beyond mind-numbingly bad that it was seriously painful to watch. There is a lot of stupidity shown by the characters with no development to them whatsoever. The plot is extremely predictable and just doesn’t cut it to what the horror genre needs in rehashed horror films. The death scenes tried to be grotesque but it was a lot of splatter, off-scene techniques that required no creativity or decent special effects. The actresses in this movie had potential but the writing and directing was so dumbed down that they didn’t have a chance in putting forth reasonable roles that could be expected.
There is a lot to hate in this film, which include the new back-story, the character’s decision making, the lazy attempt of scary death scenes, the bogus script, the phone ring-tones (we get it, it’s Christmas), and especially the hospital scenes at the end. It’s nearly the exact opposite of Clark’s original masterpiece and is definitely a one and done view for a fan or horror.
