Joshua's rating of the film Black Christmas

Stronger than Halloween without doubt. Lead Jessica and her abortion, chilling phone calls and dark effective humor that becomes trumped by the evil upstairs. I never really attached myself to the Carpenter pioneer slasher film as I did this and that is likely 50% of the characters' doing. Barb the drunk and the crass house mother are tops! "Just like having a wart removed."
