Black Christmas: Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is to give the patriarchy a swift kick in the balls.

I got my wish! Sophia Takal and April Wolfe’s adaptation reimagines the film in a way that is contemporary, fun, and empowering. It doesn’t seek to rehash the plot for Bob Clark’s seminal classic, but instead uses the premise as a jumping-off point to tell their own story. And I loved it. Every second. Though it has its flaws, its energy is amazing. I immediately bonded with the characters and was cheering them on every step of the way (sometimes out loud). In a time where simply being a woman means you’re constantly under attack from all sides, it feels good to have a movie that sees you and will hold your hand while you kick down whatever door is in front of you.
