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. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive

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.
