Yeah ANTONIO is right, WHEN A STRANGER CALLS was THE worst remake so far. It was a pointless, heartless remake. I can't even be assed to talk about the waste of fucking film. However, even though I'm dying to see this remake, I'm so busy I can't find time to get to the bloody cinema. Anyhow, don't be too down on it guys. The British critics seem to be the most harsh motherfuckers in the world when it comes to horrors, especially slashers. But whilst there have been a few negative responses, there has also been a few positives. Now I'm not talking a SCREAM review here (we all know they loved SCREAM), but most critics have said BLACK CHRISTMAS repects the original enough not to put a 'black' mark on it's name, but injects a bit of 'black' humour into the proceedings, as well as some decent death scenes to make it a worthwhile addition to the slasher genre.
Sounds a wee bit promising to me.
