Wow, this in no way, shape, or form, resembles the original and thankfully that's a good thing because no one could touch the original classic. When I heard this was being remade, I wonder firstly why and secondly how would it go. The original Black Christmas is an all-time slasher classic and pretty much made the genre way back when. A re-telling or re-imaging could not be done like the first, so I'm glad the film maker's here just had fun with it. This thing was cool, gory, and nasty all the way. It was exactly opposite from the original in that it showed any and everything! The subtlety and slow moving creepiness that worked on the original is surely not anywhere to be found here. Everything's laid wide open from start to finish and there's no mystery as to who or what's going on. There's so much cool, gross shit happening here that I can't even think about writing it all down. That's the thing that makes the new version of Black Christmas so much fun; it's so over-the-top and vulgar you have to enjoy it. I mean it's so unlike Black Christmas, that it works. Maybe they shouldn't have used the title at all, but I'm sure somebody wanted to cash in so...anyways. You're either gonna love it or hate it so watch it and decide. All the stickler's crying because it was ever made; I feel you pain as a fan of the "Real" Black Christmas, but this is still a fun rollercoaster ride and certainly no insult to that film. Slasher Fans enjoy!
