It's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas. A Black Christmas, that is. A couple of days ago I emailed Dan Duffin, webmaster of the awesome Black Christmas website itsmebilly.com. I asked him if Critical Mass has any plans of rereleasing the 1974 original Black Christmas on DVD sometime around December to coincide with the release of the remake in theaters. I also asked him about Lacey Chabert's role in the remake. Here is his reply. So it seems 1974's Black Christmas will finally be getting that 16x9 enhanced transfer so many of us have been waiting for. December seems like such a long way off. It's cool that they're also going to be releasing it on HD DVD or Blu Ray in addition to SD DVD. I wonder if all of the extras from the 2002 Collector's Edition DVD will be carried over or if there will be any new extras? Hopefully they'll include the original 1974 cover art again. I also can't wait to see the remake in theaters (although I know it won't be as good as the excellent original) and will certainly be buying it on DVD too, probably in late Spring/Early Summer 2007.
