The Trailer Park: Black Christmas (1974)



One thing that can be said about the original Black Christmas is that it needs to be talked about more. Everyone always runs to Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street, or some other film when asked what their favorite horror film of all time is. You never really hear this film get noticed too much inside of the horror community either. It never makes the wish list of films wanted on blu-ray. Everyone else wants some obscure title that may or may not sell. Black Christmas is a film that will sell well all year round and especially around Christmas.

I fell in love with this film the first time I saw the film back in the mid 90's. My friends and I would go to the local video everyday, sometimes two or three times a day, and rent the catalog films, which were two for $1. We just started in the letter "A" and kept going for four years. We rented things that don't get talked about anymore, but this is when we discovered so many of our favorite horror films. We saw Evil Dead 1 and 2, all the Halloween and Friday the 13th films, Cannibal! The Musical, and Black Christmas.

This is a film that can dive deep down into you and scare the shit out of you. We never see the killer but he haunts us every night. The direction by Bob Clark is so important to the genre that it may or may not have helped John Carpenter create Halloween.

This is a film that demands our attention and admiration. Watch this trailer and make Black Christmas a yearly watch for the Christmas season.
