Black Christmas- Scary, gory and Brill Acting!
25 October 2008 | by (Dumfries) – See all my reviews

I wanna start by saying that this remake of Black Christmas is Excellent!

First- The story was brill, the gore had it's great moments and it was a scary movie with enough deaths to keep all those death lovers out there amused.

Second- I thought that some of the acting in this film was absolutely outstanding, but there was a few who were not as good. Basically I thought that Katie Cassidy who played the main role as Kelli done a World Class job as her acting skills are simply Gorgeous, she has got so much acting talent at such a young age and she showed it in this movie with a blindingly good performance. 1 of the best young actresses in the world. Oliver Hudson who played Kyle i also thought done a superb job considering the amount of time that he got on screen wasn't a lot. Robert Mann who played the physco Billy done an amazing role as the main killer. Elizabeth Winstead and Lacey Chabert threw in some great performances too. Although this film was great i thought Michelle Trachtenberg was very poor considering her so called experience that she had supposedly got on Buffy. Crystal Lowe and Kristen Cloke also gave poor performances but lucky enough the great performers made up for these 3 errors. Ron Selmour as the dumb security Guard done his average appearance in The 2-3 mins he had.

Finally- The ratings out of 10

Katie Casiidy 10/10 Oliver Hudson 9.5/10 Robert Mann 9/10 Lacey Chabert 8/10 Elizebeth Winstead 7/10 Michelle T 2/10 Crystal Lowe 3/10 Kristen Cloke 5/10 Ron Selmour 6/10

All and All i highly recommend u buy this movie because it is a great horror movie in the making- i give this film a 9.5 out of 10 stars but since i cant give half stars ill give it the 10- Great Movie, A MUST SEE!
