"A ‘ghost’ from Christmas past is back, with a vengeance…"
Ok, so the film may have divided the cinema audiences (some people hated it, but I have to admit I actually quite enjoyed it), so now it's time to check it out for yourselves when Black Xmas is released on Region 2 DVD from Pathe / Twentieth Century Fox on November 19th.
This eyeball-popping remake of Bob Clark's cult classic 1974 film Black Christmas features a very healthy bevvy of beauties, including Lacey Chabert, Michelle Trachtenberg and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, as a demented killer stalks a young girl's sorority house.
It’s Christmas Eve and from a sky as black as death, snow falls on the isolated Alpha Kappa Gamma sorority house. Sorority sisters, Kelli (Katie Cassidy – When a Stranger Calls), Dana (Lacey Chabert – Mean Girls), Heather (Mary Elizabeth Winstead – Die Hard 4.0), Melissa (Michelle Trachtenberg – Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Lauren (Crystal Lowe – Final Destination 3), along with their house mother (Andrea Martin – Black Christmas (1974)), find themselves being harassed by chilling and mysterious phone-calls.
When one of the girls goes missing, their celebrations rapidly take a turn for the worse. Who is the mystery visitor picking them off one by one? It’s definitely not Santa…
The DVD also contains bonus content and never before seen footage – too bloody and too gory for the cinemas.
These include: Alternate Endings, Deleted Scenes and two shocking featurettes: May All Your Christmases be Black: A Filmmakers Journey, and What have you done?: The remaking of Black Christmas.
