Movie Review – Black Christmas

 

Movie Review - Black ChristmasI was so excited to find out I was going to get to see Black Christmas on Friday the 13th! It’s always been a lucky day for me, until today. Today …that trend ended. I was so disappointed with Black Christmas.

Let me first state that I have not seen the original. I didn’t even know this was a remake until I read the trivia on IMDb. I’m ashamed to admit that, since I’m a huge horror movie fan.

The plot sounded good, the trailers were enticing, but the main thing that dragged it down for me was the actors themselves. I didn’t feel anything for them. Riley, the main character (Imogen Poots), is a pretty good actress, but in this she seemed to fall flat. Her backstory was a good starting point, but they didn’t make me feel bad for her. She seemed stiff and emotionless. That irked me right away.

The supporting cast was the same. There were a few I was actually looking forward to seeing their untimely demises. That sounds harsh, but it’s the truth. This leads me to the directors…was it their fault? Perhaps, but nonetheless I didn’t really care for it.

I’m being generous, giving it a C- purely for the fact that I loved the sets. They were great, they did a really good job on the location.

Grade: C-
