Editorial Reviews

The college town of Bedford is receiving an unwelcome guest this Christmas. As the residents of sorority house Pi Kappa Sig prepare for the festive season, a demonic stranger begins to stalk the house. A series of grisly obscene phone-calls start to plague the residents of the sorority and soon they will each meet their fate at the hands of the psychotic intruder. As the Police try to trace the calls, they discover that nothing is as it seems during this BLACK CHRISTMAS.

I am 35 years old and I remember when this first came out on HBO back in the early 80's. I believe I was either ten or eleven when I first saw it. My parents went to sleep right before it came on and I stayed up to watch it (which they wouldn't have let me in any way if they knew this movie!). This was the movie that put a deep dread AND fascination in me for horror movies and suspense/thrillers. It terrified me beyond words, yet as good horror movies do they take you for a ride that thrills you to your core. Man, I remember the unbelievable dread at the end of the movie and after it was over I remember saying to myself "That was the most scared I've ever been".

There have been times as an adult that took me back to the horror that this movie implanted in me as a child....One night, sleeping in my apartment alone, I was suddenly awoken by my door opening. I slept in almost complete darkness at the time. I jumped into the "fight or flight" mode and the flight took control...I screamed and screamed like a little girl throwing my pillow at the unseen attacker! I was able to turn on the lights and I came to find out that the wind (during the summer with windows open) was responsible for pushing my door open when it wasn't shut all the way. I woke up my neighbors with the screams and commotion I made and they called the cops thinking I was being murdered! LOL Man was I embarrassed! But after it was over I remembered that that fear I felt was so similar to the fear I first felt when I watched Black Christmas all those years before.

Another instance when, I was a teen, I remember watching a news broadcast which told of a stranger living in the basement of a family's house for several months before the family found out.

There is no need to discuss what a classic the original Black Christmas is. That has been done at length by reviewers for other releases. This review is specifically for the Black Christmas [Blu-ray] edition.

The transfer and sound are great. There are still some traces of foreign matter visible from the print used, but this is the nicest copy you'll probably ever see on a home edition. I believe it is the same transfer used for the Special Edition in 2006.

The features are identical to the Special Edition release:
- 12 Days of Black Christmas featurette
- Midniht Q&A
- Interviews ( Olivia Hussey, Margot Kidder, and Art Hindle)
- 'Uncovered' Sound scenes

My only complaint is the lack of subtitles or commentaries, and for that reason I only give 4 stars. Apparently space limitations were the problem on the Special Edition. That would not be a problem on blu ray. It seems the rights to the commentaries from the 2002 Collector's Edition are owned by another company so those were not available, but it seems that new actor commentaries might have been obtained for this edition.

Sadly, Bob Clark was killed by a drunk driver in 2007. For fans wanting the director's commentary, the collector's edition is the only option and will become increasingly harder to obtain.

If you have the Special Edition and an upconvert dvd player you might give this one a miss, as there are no new features to speak of. If you have a blu ray player and don't already own the special edition, the Blu-ray edition is the way to go. Of course, you can hold out for a "Definitive Edition". There's always next Christmas...

We talked her into taking us to see this when it came out and she has never let us forget it. At the time, they even gave out little badges to the audience that said: It's Going to be a Black Christmas this Year. Wish I still had that!

Anyway one of the first, best slasher horror films ever. Halloween can say thanks. When a Stranger Calls can say thanks ... This is one scary flick. Sorority girls on campus over Christmas are, unknowingly, being slaughtered one at a time by a menancing stranger who will not stop calling their house.

Cast is fine re: suspects and gals in peril. Margot Kidder is very funny as the bad girl and the ending is, well, great! A classic.

I'm ashamed of myself. I'm a big horror/scary movie fan, but this is the first time I have ever seen the quiet little gem that is Black Christmas. Where have I been and what can I do to make up for the loss?. Watch it dozens of times this holiday season?. Okay!. Director Bob Clark's film is a beautiful movie. But more on that later. Widely reported that the film is similar in ways to Halloween, but Halloween came out 4 years later, is true. A few girls stalked by a maniacal killer in a big house on a holiday. Okay. POV shots of the killer's vision. Check. Nothing will overcome my undying love for Carpenter's film. Black Christmas is a great movie, but not as great as Halloween. But who cares. It's wonderful all on it's own. The movie takes places in Bedford(get it?), during the Christmas holiday. A few sorority girls are staying behind at their sorority house for the holidays. Jess(Olivia Hussey), Barb(Margot Kidder), and Phyl(Andrea Martin), are among those few. Unbeknownst to them, a strange sicko has climbed into the attic and plays his maniacal game with the young ladies. He harasses them with obscene calls, and then starts taking them out one by one. It seems simple, as it is, but is incredibly effective. Just like Halloween was. Bob Clark crafts a film that is obviously, and wonderfully, in the 70's, and that's what gives these older films character and ambiance. The film looks good, and Clark infuses the film with the right feel and tone of the season, while something dastardly is going on. Knowing what's going on(and what is to come)while hearing the haunting echos of "Silent Night" or any other Christmas tune in the background is haunting and eerie. Like Halloween, the movie is all about tone, fear, suspense, and utter terror.Read more ›

How Bloody is this movie?
I don't think you'll have any problem. There is virtually nothing in 'Black Christmas' that would qualify as 'gory.' It's been a year or so since I've seen it, so I'm not prepared to swear on my life, or anything. But I've seen it at least ten times, and it seems to me that the blood and gore... Read More
