THE IMMORTAL HOLIDAY SLASHER IN 35MM.
Holiday movies are sentimental, uplifting, and surprisingly devoid of knife murders. What’s a horror fan to do? Sickos rejoice — BLACK CHRISTMAS is here! When sorority sisters Olivia Hussey, Margot Kidder (SUPERMAN), and Andrea Martin find themselves under attack from a vicious, potty-mouthed killer (“It’s me, BILLY!”), it’s up to police chief John Saxon (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) to even the odds. But what about Keir Dullea (2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY), the brooding art-school pianist? Could he have something to do with the mutilation rampage? BLACK CHRISTMAS is the most important Canadian horror film of all time — and it gets everything right. One-part Christmas atmosphere, one-part stalk ‘n’ slash magnificence, and all parts awesome, this is a timeless, terrifying, and demented holiday tradition from the director of A CHRISTMAS STORY.
