Nothing, and we mean nothing, says Christmas like watching the beginning of Margot Kidder's descent into alcoholism and insanity while a middle-aged chubby woman aggressively brushes her teeth and "professional virgins" get suffocated with plastic bags.
That's why, for this week's installment of #HolidayMoviepalooza, Derek, Jake and Larry watched 1974's Black Christmas. Not only does it have all of that, but it also features David Bowman from 2001: A Space Odyssey beating up a piano, Olivia Hussey being hot, and John Saxon being a cop!
|Shown: John Saxon not being a cop in Black Christmas.|
Derek is very upset by the hats this film expects the viewers to accept. Chamber pots, a weird mushroom-looking thing, a dog food dish...All of these are placed on people's heads without any explanation, and we are expected to just deal with it!
|Nothing as dignified as these appeared in the film.|
And the only horror Larry experienced was in realizing that he had chosen this movie for the guys to watch. There was a brief moment of terror when the Mrs. Garrett lady looked like she was going to get naked, but it didn't happen, so everybody made it through. (Though they were all saddened that Olivia Hussey didn't get nekkid.)
