Black Christmas

I had to make sure I hadn’t clicked on The Onion when I read this article on CNN regarding the forthcoming movie Black Christmas


The article includes the following quote from Jennifer Giroux, co founder of Operation Just Say Merry Christmas:


It's not enough to ignore and omit Christmas, but now it has to be offended, insulted and desecrated. Our most sacred holiday, actually a holy day, is being assaulted.”


This is, you know, a horror movie.  It’s supposed to be ugly and offensive and scary and nasty and profane.  That’s kind of what it is.  Right?  The preview makes the flick look to be a rather crappy slasher flick set on Christmas with blood and guts and gore abounding. 


Why draw attention to the flick?  Just let it die a slow and quiet death because it’s gonna sink anyway.
