Holiday Horror: Black Christmas
SIFF brings the ho-ho-horror with a jolly new Film Talk, Holiday Horror: Black Christmas, in which local filmmaker Jeremy Cropf analyzes a terrifying trio of festive slashers: Bob Clark’s groundbreaking Black Christmas (1974) and the 2006 and 2019 remakes from directors Glen Morgan and Sophia Takal.
As the original approaches its 50th anniversary, this film talk will dive deep into the film’s influences and themes, as well as its dramatic impact on the horror landscape, introducing filmmaking techniques and stylistic elements that were ahead of their time. We will also explore the history of “holiday horror” films and the merits of the remakes, each unmistakable products (and arguably cultural relics) of the times in which they were produced.
Class is associated with screening of Black Christmas (1974) on December 12 at SIFF Cinema Uptown
