Face-Off: Black Christmas Billy vs. Silent Night, Deadly Night Billy

Two Christmas-themed horror movies. Two killers named Billy. Two very different approaches to bringing these men and their crimes to the screen. While Bob Clark's 1974 film BLACK CHRISTMAS keeps its killer Billy shrouded in shadows and secrecy, Charles E. Sellier Jr.'s 1984 slasher SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT was carried on the shoulders of its killer Billy. So in the end, which is the...

Top 10 Canadian Horror Flicks!

Although our very own The Arrow found it a little less effective than both Eric and I, there's no doubt that Robert Eggers' THE WITCH is one of the most harrowing horror films to come out this past calendar year. And don't look now, but the film was made in Canada! With this in mind, we thought it'd be a ton of fun to stir the old noggin and come up with a list of our favorite Canadian horror...

Details unwrapped for Canadian special edition of Black Christmas

Director Bob Clark's 1983 film A CHRISTMAS STORY is a holiday classic. TBS shows it for 24 hours straight every year on Christmas, and I never let a Christmas go by without at least one viewing of it. Nine years before making that one, Clark made another Christmas movie that may not be as widely known and celebrated as A CHRISTMAS STORY, but it is a classic in its own right....

Original Vs. Remake: Black Christmas

There were zero suspicions with the result of our last Original Vs. Remake which had John Carpenter's The Thing easily besting it's 2011 remake/prequel. Although some people took issue with the fact that the 2011 was definitely way more prequel than remake, we still say it so closely parallels Carpenter's film that it rightfully deserved to battle in this column. Thank you very much....
