Did You Know?


Professor Gelson is inspired by Jordan B. Peterson, and is meant to be an unflattering parody of him. The character was also based on Brett Kavanaugh, whose trial inspired the film. See more »

User Reviews

Dull, awkward, and predictable.
12 December 2019 | by SheilaCarterLivesSee all my reviews

The biggest offender of the latest incarnation of 'Black Christmas' is its lack of imagination. There's no mystique. There's no mystery. Considering its namesake, it doesn't even seem to attempt to try and retain any of the key components that makes the original film such a classic.

For starters, the film is incredibly flat. The direction and cinematography is dull and uninspired, and the film feels completely lifeless as a result, lacking in any mood and suspense almost entirely, and substituting with way too many cheap jump scares.

The script is just as awkward, with unbelievably cringeworthy dialogue, unlikeable characters, with them making too many questionable decisions, and frankly, it asks a little too much for suspension of disbelief.

As a remake, it misses the mark horrendously. As a horror film, it leaves a lot to be desired. It may not be a bad film, but it's an incredibly boring one.
