See It On 16mm strikes again! This time, screening a killer staple of the holiday season, 1974’s Black Christmas on beautiful 16mm film!
As winter break begins, a group of sorority sisters, including Jess (Olivia Hussey) and the often inebriated Barb (Margot Kidder), begin to receive anonymous, lascivious phone calls. Initially, Barb eggs the caller on, but stops when he responds threateningly. Soon, Barb’s friend Claire (Lynne Griffin) goes missing from the sorority house, and a local adolescent girl is murdered, leading the girls to suspect a serial killer is on the loose. But no one realizes just how near the culprit is.
Directed by Bob Clark (A Christmas Story), Black Christmas continues to shock and petrify with sadistic glee nearly five decades onward.
Black Christmas screens Sunday, December 3rd.
