Shriek: Black Christmas + Happy Hour Holiday Party says
SHRIEK: A Women of Horror Film Class continues our community education series that examines the roles of women in horror films. In December, discussion leaders and horror fanatics Evan J. Peterson and Heather Marie Bartels will warm our hearts (and other internal organs) with Black Christmas (1974), one of the earliest North American slasher films. This film jumpstarted the slasher subgenre in North America as well as the sub-subgenre of holiday-themed horror films. A group of sorority sisters on winter break must deal with unsympathetic boyfriends, an obsecene caller, a looming abortion, and a hiding murderer--but where? An adept and famous cast makes this not only one of the earliest slasher films but also one of the best.


Come down to Naked City with your worst holiday sweater, your menorah/kinara/reindeer-antler headbands, and your tidings of good cheer for happy hour, friendship, and some classic horror. Join us Sunday, December 11! Doors: 6:30pm, Discussion and film: 7:00pm.
