Christmas movie review

This festive fright-fest was a pleasant surprise from what I originally expected. This is another horror remake (of the people for 'Final Destination' - a great movie), but not as many others, but manages to come up trumps as' The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. " This is a remake of the 1974 Bob Clarke is a classic slasher film 'Black Christmas' which is actually coming four years than John Carpenter' Halloween '. Some fans lay claim to the original slasher flick.

From the outside it looks like just another of their fundamental 'psycho hacking up there a lot of pretty girls who are running up the stairs instead of out of the door,' and to some extent it is correct that 'This is how it is conveyed , Which is interesting and attractive look.

Story: crazed killer Billy Lenz, escapes his psychiatric Ward, and is determined to make it to his childhood home, where it has been abused by Christmas. The problem is that it is years later and is now home Sorority house. It is Christmas Eve and Who's who in the teen / horror girl stars are here to welcome him, including Melissa (Michelle Trachtenberg, "Buffy the vampire killer 'FAME), Heather (Mary Elizabeth Winstead," Final Destination 3'), Dana (Lacey Chabert, 'Mean Girls') and Kelli (Katie Cassidy,' When a Stranger Calls' remake.)

This film is actually quite good, that is the constant feeling that runs through watching it and adds sparkle to the fear and tension is high. The actress, blasting, although some terrible lines at times, also say some of them good. Acting is good, and because most of the leading ladies are the stars, and most of them horror star, the audience does not guess which of them is that the rolling credits. Story-line is good, and it is mounting tension as the killer first phones, girls, and then begin to deal with them.

A similar story to the original 'Halloween', with the upcoming killer houses for the holidays, there are also many similar shots from the POV killer, watching girls around the house. A Christmas theme Bleeding in nicely with the plot, and it's all in places (especially flash-back to Billy Lenz childhood), as something that the director, Tim Burton, would be a dream. The film gets darker and darker as we move through it, with some very violent images, and music is great Shirley Walker, horror and Christmas to capture everything in one twisted melody. Furthermore, the use of red and green lights in all (owed to the World Cup), it is very cold, and creates a great atmosphere.

Because it was established in the Sorority house, and already 1974 in some of the dialogue just does not cut it. I can not imagine many of these girls' staying in the house with a crazed serial killer, precisely because they can not find your 'Sorority sister,' believable in 2007 - sad but true. It is, unfortunately, obligatory shower scene, but it is used for scares, not stress, and it works.

Right from the start, you can tell, this is not your usual run of the mill slasher, it really is a back story, and we find ourselves in the care of some of the characters, for example, Kelli, played by Katie Cassidy is great; Plus, if you hated ' Dawn 'in' Buffy the vampire killer '- you will love this movie.Technorati Tags: , , , , ,
