More Info:
  • Marc Savlov

    This film is an evocative, effective entry into the holiday blood-spray subgenre in its own right. And if it doesn't make your skin crawl ... you probably ate too much Christmas dinner.

  • Chuck Wilson

    The flashbacks are wittily gothic, and the present-day murder scenes have the absurdist, chain-reaction intricacy of the "Final Destination" deaths.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Where the first film was a seminal forerunner of early stalker classics like "Halloween," this version feels as stale as old gingerbread.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Morgan borrows Christmas-specific nastiness from a wide range of fright flicks, but the result is less than the sum of its parts.

  • Ty Burr

    Silly, obvious, clumsy, and just gruesome enough to keep jaded genre fans from angrily throwing popcorn at the screen.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    There are a couple clever touches here and there, including one sequence in which the end of a candy cane has been carefully licked into a highly lethal weapon, but for the most part the accompanying histrionics feel more regressive than retro.

  • Sam Adams

    Like an ugly tie or a pair of slipper socks, Black Christmas is destined to be forgotten the instant it's unwrapped, gathering dust until the season rolls around again.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    It exchanges the police subplot that gave the earlier film its steady pace for a lot of pointless backstory about the mother-fixated stalker.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Props to the Weinstein Brothers for having the guts to release a slasher film on Christmas Day. Too bad this one is the cinematic equivalent of tryptophan.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Jason Anderson

    Lazy, perfunctory and free of tension, the new version will satisfy neither the admirers of the original nor anyone looking for a gory respite from seasonal good cheer.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Gregory Kirshling

    Twice as many accidental laughs as scares.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Seems to go out of its way to obliterate all the elements that made the original so special.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kat Brown

    Bad film fans will think Christmas has come early, everyone else should ask for the receipt.

    Empire Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    With a peephole-riddled set and a flashback-heavy screenplay, Black Christmas smothers terror beneath a blanket of unnecessary information, revealing too much and teasing too little.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    It's debatable whether the original 1974 "Black Christmas" is, as its most rabid fans claim, the mother of all slasher movies. But there can be no argument regarding the scant merits of its slapdash, soporifically routine remake, suitable only for the least discriminating of gore hounds.

  • Desson Thomson

    The remake neither pays perceptive tribute to the original nor updates it in anything but hackneyed form.

  • Jim Ridley

    The product itself isn't so much afterthought as afterbirth -- a bloody mess to be dumped discreetly.
