While I'll always love The Shape emerging to chase after Laurie Strode, for my money "Black Christmas" is the supreme slasher film...

Generally heralded as the first of its kind, Black Christmas may actually be one of a kind.

Perhaps frightening in 1974, it really doesn't hold up today unless you can forget the 12,000 films exactly like it, which is difficult.

Clark consegue crier uma atmosfera incômoda a partir de um fiapo de roteiro, sendo auxiliado também pela performance contida da bela Hussey.

Only Marian Waldman as the house-mother comes across with any life.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Although strictly standard fare, the material is elevated somewhat through Clark's skillful handling of such plot devices as obscene phone calls from the killer to the girls via the upstairs phone and a nicely handled twist ending.

The film still manages a good slice of old-fashioned suspense.

This dark holiday classic ranks as one of the screen's very first slasher flicks.

Lessons of Darkness

Corrodes jolly yuletide cheer with some cruel prank calls, sexual tension and sorority girl slayings.

Eye for Film

Like Carpenter, Clark avoids graphic gore, focussing instead on suggestion and using careful mise-en-scene, editing and use of music to build suspense.

If nothing else, Black Christmas will always be remembered as the inferior older brother to Clark's other Christmas flick, the Tito of the Jackson clan.

Cold, classy, and straightforward, Black Christmas also has the advantage of good acting by the female leads played by Margot Kidder and Olivia Hussey.

I wouldn't call Black Christmas some kind of overlooked classic of the genre -- or subgenre. I think 'overlooked classic template' would be nearer the mark.
