Last Christmas, I Stabbed Through Your Heart: Black Christmas, 1974 (Canada), plus remakes in 2006 (USA & Canada) and 2019 (USA & New Zealand)

Stalkers watch their flocks on silent nights - including an unsuspecting family of independent sorority sisters. This classic holiday horror is often overshadowed by the generation of grisly slashers it inspired, and by two modern remakes with noticeably different plots. This Christmas, the gang explores slasher lineage and feminist themes in Black Christmas.
