Grumpire 16, Black Christmas 1

Season’s Greetings, Christmas Creeps! It’s time to iron out your Santa socks and stare blankly at your fruitcake because we’re back to ruin your yuletide cheer with a seasonally appropriate bashing of one of mid-2000s Christmas Horror’s crowning achievements.

Joining us on this episode is Jessica Scott, film essayist and cosplayer extraordinaire. Jessica really doesn’t like 2006’s Black Christmas (aka Black Xmas) , and hopes her horror friends can forgive her. Of course, if Andrew and Elbee can forgive her (admittedly pretty fair) distaste of one of their favorite holiday remakes, then everyone else can too! After all, it is the giving season.

Pitted against Black Christmas is another horror remake, 2005’s House of Wax. It may not be a Christmas movie, but it sure is about family, so gather yours together and take a big ol’ fireside listen to this episode!

Jessica has bylines at Dread Central, Daily Grindhouse, Manor Vellum, and most recently in the Hear Us Scream zine, so be sure to check out her work. You can get to know more about her here!
