Black Christmas isn't bad because it has an obvious feminist message to send - it fails because, frankly, it's a bit dull. The PG-13 was meant to lure in younger audiences but it also means the film can't live up to its slasher roots. Plus, the characters all seem to blend in too much - with only Imogen Poots and Aleyse Shannon managing to somewhat stand out in the crowd. Otherwise this is a completely mediocre teen-centric horror with a lot of girl power - and not much else.

Freaking hilarious. And yes, that's a line from the movie.

Interesting fact: This movie was shot in June 2019 and finished in July 2019. According to IMDB, some scenes in the film were shot in only one take, and ad-libbed, without a competed script.

It painfully shows.

The script for this movie felt like it was written by Twitter with no subtlety in sight. Putting the "message before the story" is already a sign that this movie was destined to fail horribly.

Some of the acting and line delivery was terrible, which is where the "one take" thing is transparent. I wouldn't even call them “characters” in the movie, as they were merely mouthpieces.

This remake is so bad that the 2006 remake suddenly looks great. Avoid at all costs unless you like shitty movies.
