This has been on my "to watch" list for years and I was happy to find it here. This movie was great! Creepy. Worth it for Margot Kidder's campy nonsense. I didn't even know that Andrea Martin was also in this film. The appropriate amount of "show, don't tell" for a good suspenseful ...Read more

The thing to keep in mind is that this was made BEFORE the Slasher Film existed as a genre--in fact, you can see certain tropes being solidified that will be picked up and perfected by the directors of HALLOWEEN, FRIDAY THE 13th and all the films that were dervied from them. I can draw a ...Read more

Preceded by several years Carpenter's Halloween which is far more taut and effective, Battleship Potemkin compared to the mediocrity displayed here, storytelling that is both sloppy and predictable, feeble attempts at ...Read more

Waaaay better than it needed to be. Nasty, suspenseful, and well-written. Way better than Bob Clark's other Christmas movie.

Excellent, well acted (except for Margot Kidder who really hams it up), almost bloodless, classic, horror film. The killer is a real "sicko" (as we would say in the 70s).

One of my favorite Christmas horror movies. A solid slasher film that is genuinely creepy and wonderfully 70's. Margot Kidder is also fantastic.

A genuinely frightening slasher film that, paradoxically, has an evocative Christmas atmosphere. Margot Kidder is very funny and memorable as a wise-cracking and foul mouthed sorority sister.
