About Black Christmas (2006) - Movie Information

Sam's Boring Bullshit

Bob Clark’s career spanned 5 decades and some of his more treasured works are, Porky’s, A Christmas Story and the multi award winning Murder by Decree. He also was responsible for a laundry list of stinkers, including but not limited to; Rhinestone, The Karate Dog and three films which have landed in the conversation of worst movies ever made, those being, Turk 182! and the Baby Geniuses duology. Hard to imagine that the same guy could give you a piece of treasured Americana like A Christmas Story while in the other hand delivering a turd sandwich like Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2. 1974’s Black Christmas was Clark’s fifth film and it marked his break out of ultra budget films. It reportedly returned $4 million against a budget of $620k. In 2006 he decided to remake the film, acting only as producer in this case. This time around the film would return $16 million against a budget of $9 million.

Glen Morgan, veteran producer who also directed the remake of Willard would be brought on to direct. Though notable for working in the horror genre, the majority of his time has been spent producing television shows for Fox. After leaving the X-Files he would create Space Above and Beyond, which apparently only I liked.

The cast is comprised of various flavors of the month, including but not limited to: Katie Cassidy, Michelle Trachtenberg, Lacey Chalbert and Mary Elizabeth Winsted. Andrea Martin will be the only actress to return from the original film and Morgan will sneak in Kristen Cloke from Space Above and Beyond to play the role of way to older sister who is there for almost no reason. I recently found out Mary Elizabeth Winsted is married… to a dead man…

A fun fact unrelated to anything but last weeks film is that the original was apparently Elvis’ favorite horror movie and he would watch it every Christmas.

KAEOF: Who is your favorite sorority girl or, is there one you want to not die? Which sorority girl do you want to die the most? Does this movie convey the true meaning of Christmas?
