“On-screen she was magic. Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring women I’ve ever known,” Mark Hamill wrote on Twitter. “I’ll miss you Margot Kidder. Your legacy will live on forever.”

Kumail Nanjiani highlighted Kidder’s performance in Bob Clark’s “Black Christmas,” writing, “It introduced some elements that are now genre tropes and she’s fantastic in it.”
Rip Margot Kidder. One of my favorite movies of hers is the original Black Christmas. It introduced some
Multiple sources, including The Hollywood Reporter, report that Kidder's representative, Camilla Fluxman Pines, has confirmed the news that Kidder has passed away. The cause of her death is not known at this time.
Many film fans knew Kidder as Lois Lane, the fearless reporter at Metropolis' Daily Planet newspaper. Through four Superman films (beginning with 1978's Superman), Kidder's iconic character showed Superman how to live, love, and laugh on a planet as tumultuous as Earth.
Yuletide Terror starts off with the proverbial one-two punch of essays on the two aforementioned Christmas-themed horror films (I’d argue that both Bob Clark’s original Black Christmas and Silent Night,
Written by Brian Kehoe and Jim Kehoe, and staring Leslie Mann, John Cena and Ike Barinholtz as three parents trying to stop their teenage daughters from losing their virginity on prom night, Blockers offers up a simple, yet hugely effective idea, which despite presenting all the signs of yet another cliche-ridden gross-out comedy, still manages to impress with its incredibly progressive and “gender positive” narrative.
From the groundbreaking Porky’s (Bob Clark, 1981), to more recent classics such as Superbad (Greg Mottola, 2007) and Bad Neighbours (Nicholas Stoller, 2014), teenage boys have had their fair share of onscreen representation and haven’t had to look too hard to find dozens of teen comedies which celebrate,

The 1980s were a decade of many cultural phenomenon such as the teen angst film, the splatter horror film, the zombie films, and of course the teen sex comedy. Bob Clark’s Porky’s (1981) was a huge success both financially and artistically. To this day it’s still one of the funniest movies ever made. Many of today’s best-known actors cut their teeth in such fare: Tom Hanks attended an out-of-control Bachelor Party (1984) and even Johnny Depp and Rob Morrow checked into a Private Resort (1985). Stanley Donen, best known for directing Singin’ in the Rain (1952), Funny Face (1957), Charade (1963), and Arabesque (1966), followed up the boring and disastrous Saturn 3 (1980) with Blame It on Rio, a peculiar entry in his otherwise illustrious career.

‘A Christmas Story’ (1983)
Director: Bob Clark
Screenplay: Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown & Bob Clark based on the novel ‘In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash,’ by Jean Shepherd
I know there’s a lot of people out there who regret the commercialization of ‘A Christmas Story‘ and sure, it’s totally out-of-hand. There’s a live televised version of ‘A Christmas Story‘ that happened on TV recently, which is one of the more benign examples to occur. I’d be remissed if I didn’t bring up the egregious straight-to-dvd sequel they made a couple years ago to widespread scorn; if for no other reason than the fact that there already was a sequel to ‘A Christmas Story‘ out there!
So this week to celebrate we'll be facing down two representational totems, one from each film - from A Christmas Story we have the infamous Sexy Leg Lamp that Ralphie's Dad buys (and that Ralphie's Mom destroys). And from Black Christmas comes the Crystal Unicorn that is used to murder the film's greatest character, drunken and acid-tongued

Press Release: For many, Christmas is an annual celebration of goodwill and joy, but for others, it’s a time to curl up on the couch in the dead of winter for a good old-fashioned fright. The festive holiday season has always included a more somber side, and scary tales of child-stealing demons to ghost stories told ‘round the fireplace go back to pre-Christian celebrations. These long-standing traditions have found modern expression in the Christmas horror film, a unique

I used an air rifle I got one Christmas growing up, but I never had a mail-in decoder ring which required me to consume mass quantities of Ovaltine, I never ran into bullies with yellow eyes, and I never took a dare to stick my tongue to an aluminum pole in the middle of winter.

Press Release: (Toronto) Horror-Rama is thrilled to welcome actress Ashley C. Williams to her Canadian convention debut!
Ashley found instant cult infamy for her tragic turn in director Tom Six's notorious black-comic horror masterpiece The Human Centipede where she was stitched rear-to-mouth as the middle segment of a mad scientist's insane experiment. In 2015 she received acclaim for her blistering turn in director Matthew A. Brown's psychological horror film Julia and both she and Brown (who will also be attending Horror-Rama 2017) will screen their masterpiece and meet their fans.
Ashley joins previously announced special guests: John Harrison (Creepshow,
Black Christmas (1973, dir. Bob Clark) In many ways the first modern slasher film, Bob Clark’s holiday horror movie is, to this day, a genre masterpiece. From its chilly Canadian atmosphere to the disturbing obscene phone calls being made to a sorority house, Black Christmas is brilliantly constructed and hugely influential. It’s not just one of my favorite slasher movies, but one of my favorite horror movies of any type, full stop.
Blood Rage (1987, dir. Bruce Rubin) There are slasher movies that are tense and scary and stylish. Blood Rage is not one of them. Shot in 1983 but not released
