Sorority girls are terrorized on Christmas Eve by the psychotic murderer that once lived in their house.
Black Christmas 2006 isn't anything like the classic 1974 original. This remake ignores practically everything about the original film and instead just becomes a routine, bloody slasher flick. There's little surprise in this slasher outing, you've got all the clichés on display a group of girls with attitudes, some background on a killer with a bad home life, lots of false scares, and plenty of gory over-the-top killings. It's all pretty tasteless and uninspiring. The lame dialog, stereotyped characters, and sub-par cast definitely don't help matters either. Not even the presence of Andrea Martin, of the original film, lends much credibility to this turgid remake.
For those seeking a brainless slasher-fest I suppose this remake would be adequate enough, though it's definitely not to be taken seriously by any means. As a remake though, it's pretty much a foul insult to the classic original.
