Black Christmas

'Black Christmas' (1974) Though he may be better known for his pro-Christmas “A Christmas Story,” director Bob Clark achieved earlier cult fame in anti-Christmas circles for this flick about a maniac offing a sorority house full of coeds. Originally released with the title “Silent Night, Evil Night,” Clark is credited with pioneering a lot of the horror movie effects that John Carpenter used to great success in “Halloween” four years later. It got remade in 2006.
