You messed with the wrong slasher
No one was expecting a remake of Black Christmas, nor was anyone asking for it. And its sudden announcement in June was like snow on one’s head. What kind of interest can there be in the cult proto-slasher of 1974? Especially after the notorious 2006s remake, which many still either recall as a nightmare or consider it a comedy because of its torture, plot holes, and the ridiculous killer’s background? These two Black Christmases would remain a typical tandem of the “80s original / XXI century studio alteration”, but…
The rights to the concept were bought by Blumhouse with director Sophia Takal and screenwriter April Wolfe to lead the newest incarnation. Takal had previously shot some lazy indie thriller about mean female friendship and a full-length episode of the anthology series “Into the Dark” …also about mean female friendship. And with New Year’s entourage. Obviously, everything starts there. These two saw the opportunity to depict all of their modern ideas, only with some snow and toothless scrimers.
Don’t try to find any tribute to the original (kitty Claudette instead of 1974s cat Claude) and an attempt to strangle one of the villains with polyethylene. Instead, there’s a bunch of blank college girls, one of whom, Riley (Imogen Poots), suffers from emotional trauma after being raped by one of the frat bros (Ryan McIntire), who escaped punishment and even dared to return to college. But the girls have worse problems: the tough student Chris (Aleyse Shannon) demands the dismissal of one of the old-school professor for his boomer-ish way of teaching. While Professor Gelson (Cary Elwes) is trolling the suffragists of the 21st century by quoting the well-known anti-feminist Camille Paglia, female students begin to disappear. And if nobody gave a crap about the horribly acting blonde girl from literally every BC trailer (Lucy Curry), the further disappearances begin to slowly alarm. The police shrugs and isn’t eager to do anything (by the way, another curtsy to the original), so Riley begins her own investigation.
Takal and Wolfe are as humble as a jackhammer when it’s about the man which are either evil or stupid. An malicious cultist professor with his toxic bloodhound on a chain, annoying boyfriends who can either start a fight out of nothing or stutter while talking to a girl. The authors’ ideas ends so quickly that they even use supernatural power, led by the late founder of the college – a white privileged slaver man of his 1800s, who was sure that women would occupy his stronghold of knowledge one day, and then the males must be able to defend… defend what? Oh, sorry, they never explain it anyway. They just hate women, that’s all, bite it. No Billy, no Agnes, no real freedom from male opinion. Somewhere in 1974, Jess Bradford sighs heavily while firmly announcing to her boyfriend the decision to have an abortion. Turns out that women’s rights aren’t about freedom of choice, but about driving away the “white men science” from universities.
Black Christmas doesn’t want to be a horror movie. In fact, it doesn’t want to be a film. But it wants to be an essay, which for whatever reason was wrapped in Christmas light. An essay, albeit with a budget of $ 5,000,000, is not capable of being exciting and thrilling. Even in others negative reviews, only Imogen Poots can be praised for the role of the emotionally injured, but strong by her spirit, but she is underestimated by the scriptwriters that did not want to give her character some decent development. Cary Elves wasn’t told this isn’t another “Saw”, and therefore something like “game over” is about to burst from his terribly taut smile. The rest of the cast is a typical cannon fodder, as one of the characters (Lily Donoghue, who deserves more screen time tbh) behaves so cringy while interacting with the intruder as if she wanted to end all of this as soon as possible. It’s also hilarious that there are two sorority houses, and the second one is shown briefly in the midst of their own attack. All for the sake of the final fight, so that there could me more female combat extras.
The film is mostly praised for showing certain socially disturbing topics familiar to many… well, feminists. Campus abuse and rapes were described in the great “The Hunting Ground”, and the pointless gory gender violence was shown in epic “Assassination Nation”. What do we get in “Black Christmas” for millennials? The fear of walking down the street alone at night, the keys compressed in a shaking fist, and the unexplained progressive ladies’ annoyance with the “not all men”.
Black Christmas is a boring, bloodless thriller that is radical in its beliefs and incapable of accepting a bit of a different opinion, shot for the fun of snowflakes and all kinds of warriors for the rights of all disenfranchised. Fortunately, this movie ceases to be associated with its predecessors as soon as it changes its name.
Now I don’t have to remember other bad movies from 2019!
Absolutely the worst movie I’ve seen in theaters for the year 2019. There was nothing redeeming about this movie. It’s a horror movie based around how men are being kept down by women and they are using black magic to take the power back. Power that they never actually lost, of course. It’s just now their actions have consequences and they don’t like it. The lesson was muddled anyway, the characters all suck, the kills happen off camera and by the end you don’t care anyway because you’ve been defeated completely and you just want to go home. Don’t waste any time on this movie. No one involved did so why should you?
