Oh! The Horror! (5)

Day 6: October 7, 2007

Black X-mas

(remake of a 1974 film of the same name)

"She's MY family now..."
Meet Billy. Billy's mother hated him and kept him locked in the attic for most of his life. While living in the attic he became very adept at moving around the house semi-undetected in the walls and between the floors. Years of neglect and abuse led him to become a deranged psychopath who would murder his mother and stepfather, and maim his sister/daughter. That's right, I said sister/daughter. Ewww... For the past 15 years Billy has been living in a sanitarium for the criminally insane while his former home was rezoned into a sorority house. Woohoo! A house full of hot chicks all simultaneously PMSing in a horror movie set on Christmas Eve, does life get any better? It in fact, does. Billy manages to escape his incarceration and returns to his childhood home in the middle of a terrible blizzard. The police will be able to make it out in 2 hours... This movie will never win an Oscar, and the acting is fairly stereotypical for a horror flick, but the gore and violence were excellent, and the soundtrack is full of Christmas carols. I liked it. 3 skulls.
