It’s one of the worst horror movies I’ve ever watch online! The characters are annoying, the story is really different than the original, and the whole concept about how all women are good and all men are bad is really stupid (that’s not feminism because feminism is about gender equality, and we all know there are good men and good women as well there are bad men and bad women). I would hate even if they wrote an opposite story about good men killing bad women because both ways are so generic, boring and wrong. But the good news is you can find Black Christmas (2019) in this page.
I advise you to save your money and watch the original or the remake (yes, that one looks a masterpiece if compared with this new version… And even the female characters are more interesting and iconic than the new ones).
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.
