this reimagining showcases with encyclopaedic relish just about every slasher convention and variation that has evolved over the last thirty or so years since the original Black Christmas screened.

Morgan is never satisfied with a straightforward camera setup or with a simple asphyxiation -- not when he can shoot from a disorienting diagonal and give you an asphyxiation, eye-gouging, neck-breaking, and impalement all at once.

Although this is a more standard horror film, the tone is witty and gleefully grisly.

the most audacious and unlikely great horror movie in years!

Black Christmas 2006 vs. Black Christmas 1974 is like finding beneath your tree an X-Box compared to Pong, or a Tribotix Robotis Bioloid compared to a Malibu Barbie. In short: Things have definitely perked up in the gore department!
