Keep Screaming

A horror podcast by two best friends, dissecting slasher movies... one by one.

Black Christmas (1974)

Ryan Larson
Black Christmas

It’s a very merry black Christmas! All month long we are celebrating the holiday season with Black Christmas! Starting off with 1974’s iconic Black Christmas directed by none other than Bob Clark (yes, the same director as A Christmas Story!). This 70’s slasher is a must see and our episode premieres December 10th.

For our pop culture check in Bee divulges that she is in a movie slump, but somehow still watches one million things. In a more negative light, she discusses her disappointment in Pitch Perfect 3 and the negative outlook on love in Table 19 (2017). Ryan and her both praise Love, Simon(2018) and Murder on the Orient Express(2018) and dive into Blumhouse’s collaboration with Hulu in their Into the Dark series. Bee finally watched A Quiet Place (2018) and predicts it making her top list for horror this year.

Ryan chimes in on the odd & very 90’s feeling of Venom, as well as the Sicario sequel, Eli Roth’s The House With a Clock In Its Walls and how he believe Mission Impossible has beat out Fast & the Furious for best action franchise.

Then we dive into the influential and ever important proto-slaser Black Christmas.

Stay tuned for December 24th when we follow that up with 2006’s Black Xmas directed by Glen Morgan. A mean spirited millennium remake that takes it’s creative liberties with the story as opposed to a shot for shot remake. At the end of this episode, we will compare the two films!
