Black Christmas (2019)
Critic Consensus: Better than the 2006 remake yet not as sharp as the original, this Black Christmas stabs at timely feminist themes but mostly hits on familiar pulp.

Critic Reviews for Black Christmas
Despite its desperate efforts to justify the homicides, there's nothing remotely innovative or even goofily satirical about it.
At its best, "Black Christmas" is a smart alternative to slasher horror, and Takal provides a needed voice in the current conversation. Her message is clear, but her execution needs some work.
It has plenty of ideas, but falls short in delivering the scares.
Takal and Wolfe distinguish their film with an in-your-face fury aimed at contemporary campus culture's negligent approach to sexual assault and the ways in which women are forced to deal in its aftermath.
Fans of the original ... might not love writer-director Sophia Takal's take, but Black Christmas is a fun film that gets its kicks out of literally smashing the patriarchy.
