31 Days of Horror 4: Originals vs. Remakes DAY 30
Black Christmas (1974) vs. Black Christmas (2006)
One of the original slasher movies, predating Halloween by four years
The film tells the story of a psychopath hiding out in the attic of a sorority house who targets a group of sisters who are staying behind over Christmas break.
Here we have a fantastic slasher movie. It has suspense and scares with no real graphic gore, which leaves a lot of things to the imagination, the way it should be done!
The only problem I do have with Black Christmas is that some characters lack any sort of life. Yet, that isn't enough for the movie to be ignored by anyone.
Well ... this one does deliver gore and that's about it.
The story is about the same, but doesn't have the atmosphere, humor or visuals of the original. I don't think it's fair to call this a movie, it's like a work in progress.
So, which is better?
