BLACK CHRISTMAS 2' After 27 Years' Really'

Hey folks, Harry here. Is it really possible? For seventies horror geeks, you know how freaking great BLACK CHRISTMAS... aka SILENT NIGHT EVIL NIGHT was. All this does to me is give me questions... Will Bob Clark helm it? Could it possibly be possible? Is there really a point, or should BLACK CHRISTMAS remain as a perfect example of wonderful seventies suspense horror? Could be... Olivia Hussey back? How will she play into it? Will she be the main character? Will she be killed instantly? Will she be the killer? Who knows, but take this as your official... GO FIND OUT call. Very much looking forward to learn more on this...

My name is _______ and I happened to be an extra on the film "Island Prey" and had a chance to talk with Olivia Hussey and she told me she was getting ready to do a sequel to the horror film Black Christmas. Thought you might like to know.

    by WillardEisenbaum

    hey, this is cool news! that's the one with Margot Kidder, right, and the creep is up in the attic of the sorority house all along, right? I always liked it so much better than that old Happy Birthday to Me movie, or the Valentine's one with the Satanic coal miner. bring it on, Hollywood!

    That Saxon Bast@**!

    by TwinShade

    That was the original insipriation John Carpenter said. The first slasher film. It would be great to go back to the source. It also never solved who really was the killer. And I know. I know! It was the cop. That John Saxon bas....*

    Its me Bill-eeeeeeeeeeeee

    by rumpieguy

    Oh F@#K! I remember seeing this movie on cable when i was just a kid and it scarin the bejesus outta me! I think I slept with the covers pulled up to my eyeballs for a week. Does anybody remember that last line? It REALLY freaked me out man...Olivia Hussey is in her bed after her traumatic ordeal... as the camera pulled back on the house at night and the cop cars pull away and then the phone starts ringing....and that chilling voice speaking, "It's me Bill-eeeee!" AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Haven't se-se-seen it since i was a kid....I wonder if it would still spook me? Dunno...but If it does hold up, a part two might not be a bad idea! Just as long as they do it in that gritty 70s style and not the current slick mtv style.

    70's First person perspective horror

    by BadAshe

    I rented this movie after I read a review about it on some horror site and I must say I was impressed. Hell, I still use Filthy Billy as my name when I play FPS games online, although no one gets the reference.

    Hey Harry what exactly are you telling your advertisers

    by ItsOver

    According to your pop ups AICN readers are horny, low brow jackoffs with poor impulse control and an insatiable need for encryption technology and cell phones. I don't get it. **** Anyway, I'm a bit hesitant in welcoming a sequel to Black Christmas. What I loved about this film and Halloween, although trite now, is that there was no explanation for the killer. It's as if there was no reason the killer chose the victims in the film and not any audience member. In Halloween 2 they had to give Meyers a reason which made him considerably less evil and frightening. **** Do you think Hollywood (assuming this is a bankrolled production) can even produce a good horror movie? Remember people complaining how people were laughing during the re-release of Exorcist? The genre has been cannibalized by the illiterate who demand horror movies to be shot like an MTV video and have a sense of ironic detachment. Two traits that are the antithesis of a good thriller. *sigh*

    Bob Clark, Alan Ormsby and CHILDREN SHOULDN"T PLAY WITH DEAD THI

    by EricAlan69

    Now, if you'll recall, these two fine gentleman did make one of the greatest "Hippie-Zombie" flick of all time (and, you'll recall, there's a LOT of competition in that category), the immortal "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things"! Now THERE's a flick that needs a sequel! The need to go back to that freaky island in the middle of Biscayne Bay and build a shopping mall, wherein the hippies can protest commerce whilst being eaten.... e.

    If Craven directs id go see it

    by Winkleboy

    Ok i know theres a very small chance of this actually happening but this movie is crying out to be directed by the great one!

  • Nov. 26, 2001, 5:34 p.m. CST

    If Bob Clark directs...

    by WesReviews

    ...then I'll maybe go see it. I'm one of the biggest fans of the original that you're ever likely to find, but I can't help but wonder why a sequel to this film is necessary. However, if it gets people interested in the first one again, I'm all for it. Any and ALL horror or slasher film fans must see this movie. It is essential viewing and was recently released here in the US on DVD. Track it down!

    itsOver, some of the people laughing at "The Exorcist"....

    by MGTHEDJ

    were the Protestant Fundamentalist. I know when I saw the re-release some people were commenting that they couldn't believe the priests were having such a hard time. They've been taught by their pastors, youth ministers, and tele-evangelists that ANYONE can stop Satan and ANYONE can free someone possesed in 10 seconds. Also, they did not get the point of the mom's appearence. For others who were confused, the Catholic Church's Dogma, at least as late as the 1970's, stated if you die before receiving Last Rights, you WILL go to HELL. That's why he had so much guilt in the last half of the film. Protestent Fundamentalists did not understand what the true horror was in the story.-----later-----m

    Black Christmas Story

    by mr_muffin_man

    ...actually, I think Peter would be dressed up as Black Bart. Anyway, while Bob Clark is at it, he can probably touch up that script to include the long awaited follow up to his immortal trilogy Porky's. Actually, a sequel to Black Christmas at this point with an audience that never even saw the first one? A theater release would probably result in the same type of apathy bestowed upon Food of the Gods 2. ("Food of the Gods 2? Well I didn't even realize there was a Food of the Gods 1".) Now that I think of it, I would like to see a He Knows You're Alone 2, starring multi-Academy Award (TM) winner Tom Hanks!

    twas the night of 'black christmas' and in the five-tone

    by tommy5tone

    a wee young tommy (circa 1981 or so) and his dad were watching the movie together on their new-fangled video cassette recorder. of course, when it came to the scene where the obscene phone caller rang the sorority and started hissing about college girls' pink little cunts, papa five-tone speculated as to whether this was suitable viewing for his young son. "shut the fuck up, daddy-o," i yelled. "this is some grade-A creepy shit!" "right you are, son," he said proudly. "right you are." do we need a sequel to 'black christmas'? not if it's gonna be some piss-poor new millennium slasher with no scares but plenty of irony. let's all just go to the video store and load up on creepy-ass horror movies from the '70s and '80s instead, OK?

    70s Horror vs current Horror...

    by rumpieguy

    I was just a kid in the late 70s early 80s...but the horror films I saw then on tv or that I was able to sneak into at the movies were so much creepier than the horror films today. My brothers and I would lie to our father about what movie we were going to see and instead of seeing something from Disney, we'd go see a George Romero zombie flick and then spend the rest of the time walking around the mall dragging our feet and groaning like we were the undead. I love movies man...all types and all genres and Im not going to be one of those "They don't make movies like they used to" kinda guys....because they still make great movies today for sure....its just that in the Horror genre by and large....the 70s had that gritty, realistic anti mtv type of look. Perhaps audiences have changed also...because as a poster mentioned above, I too experienced an obnoxious crowd at the re-release of the Excorcist last year. Fortunately I am 6'4" tall and built like a football player, so i stood up and whipped ju ju bees at their heads till they shut up. Anyway...its another example of the retarded attention spans of todays youth raised on mtv. Not all though...I too was raised with mtv...but fortunately like having an older cooler friend who turned you on to classic rock instead of the pukey bubblegum bands of the time...I too was exposed to cool movies. Rock on...be scary.

    HELP!!!

    by ccefoladvd

    Black Christmas scared the shit out of me when I was a kid and saw it on cable. There was another flick around the same time that scared me too. It revolved around these old people and there was a classic scene when they pour cement on this old dude inside a box. His foot is sticking out so they chop it off with an axe and the guy put's the piece of foot in his pocket. If anyone remembers the title, can you email me at ccefoladvd@apvi.com

    HOMEBODIES

    by rumpieguy

    Dude....I think the name of that film was called the HOMEBODIES....about a group of senior citizens who are going to get kicked out of their apartment, so they decide to fight back....and kill. I remember that scene too and it creeped me out....something about old people or very young kids who kill people in horror movies that always makes my skin crawl.
