This is an excellent example of how tone-deaf many modern social justice blowhards can be while spreading their message. Filmmakers have always embedded political messages in genre films--but they were smart enough to be subtle and avoid alienating potential fans. You can enjoy Dawn of the Dead without even paying attention to Romero's jabs at consumerism. But this Black Christmas is obviously a confrontational FU message to the exact demographic that traditionally powers horror box office. I'm personally thrilled to see flicks like this and the new Terminator tank. There's a reason why action movies have always been anchored by stars like Eastwood, Schwarzenegger, and Stallone. It's slightly easier to suspend disbelief for an over-sized male hero like that compared to say...80-year-old Linda Hamilton. Want to make a female-empowering slasher flick? Easy. Make the killer a female who succeeds by exploiting the patronizing attitudes of male victims. A guy could watch that film and enjoy seeing buffoonish dinosaurs buying the farm. But this flick appears to lack any cleverness or irony--and it's bragging about its smug contempt for males. Here's hoping for the extremely likely "the world just isn't ready for our message" whining that will accompany the tepid box office that awaits this miscalculated piece of crap.
