Black Christmas

First slide

Sorority sisters (most prominently Imogen Poots) are preyed on by hooded assailants who seem to be connected to a fraternity on campus. Director and co-writer Sophia Takal uses the horror genre as a vehicle for a preposterously overblown feminist message, the bottom line of which is that the only good white male is a dead one. If frights are few and some of the plot elements incoherent, at least the mayhem is mostly kept under wraps.

Watch out for: Much stylized violence with some gore, a scene of nonmarital sensuality, a few sexual jokes, at least one profanity, a single rough term, occasional crude and crass language.

Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA: PG-13
