[fiddling with the electric box, trying to get the power back on]
Oh shit. The main breaker is underneath the house.
[Leigh looks at her]
What? I'm not the totally helpless daddy's girl these bitches make me out to be.
Okay, then go outside and turn the power on.
Are you high? I'm not going outside, it's freezing!
It'll take two seconds, you know where the power is, I'll keep looking for Clair

7. At the ending, there is an extra shot of Leigh standing next to a closed door in the hospital hallway and we see Billy walking past it in the shadows, foreshadowing something bad is going to happen.
Before watching the remake of BLACK Christmas I told myself that I would view it as if it is an original film so I can give an opinion that isn't based on a ton of comparisons, because if you look at an original film and a remake you're still watching two completely different films despite any possible similarities.
While watching this remake and seeing what they have done here, I couldn't help myself by saying this is going to slap fans of the original 1974 classic in the face, its like Glen Morgan took the original, tore it apart and put it back to together as a hack and slash fest that would've been better if it were another SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT sequel, this remake is basically a slasher through and through, it even contains all the trademarks of a slasher such as despicable stuck up characters that you wish would die just so the film would end, it has a main villain whose gone psycho from growing up in messed up household, it even as an 80's slasher type of score that lets you think about the good old days of horror.
My recommendation for watching this film would be not to take it seriously and try not to compare it the original 1974 classic, otherwise you might find yourself speechless.
