Retro Picture Show presents BLACK CHRISTMAS (74) and SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT - both shown from vintage 35mm film prints.

Canada | 98 mins | Dir. Bob Clark | 35mm

Black Christmas is a stark and stylish exercise in suspense that turns everyone's favorite time of year inside out. Olivia Hussey and Margot Kidder star as two among an ill-fated handful of sorority sisters celebrating the season and semester's end when an obscene phone call interrupts the festivities. The caller rings off with a death threat, which proves all too real. Is the killer a brilliant music student (Keir Dullea) who has gotten one of the women pregnant? No one is sure. And no one can stop the deadly calls preceding the attacks.

US | 92 mins | Dir. Charles E. Sellier, Jr. | 35mm

Bearing the emotional scars of a young boy who has seen his mother and father brutally murdered by a savage killer in a  Santa Claus costume, 18-year-old Billy explodes into a lethal frenzy – he’s asked to put on a Santa Claus suit himself to entertain the customers of the department store where he works. Reminded of the tragic events that have marked his life, Billy embarks on a killing rampage that is as ghastly – and controversial as anything ever seen on film.
