S1E5. FE2-0880: Black Christmas (1974)



It's that time of year! You know the time, when we watch Bob Clark's Holiday Classic for 24 hours. No, not THAT Holiday Classic, THIS classic! That's right, Clark's Black Christmas, the proto-slasher that, according to many, inspired John Carpenter's Halloween, and laid the bloody groundwork for one of the most popular horror sub-genres. I explore the similarities and differences between the two films, and offer up some potentially controversial theories

This is overall a shorter episode, with some talk toward the end about listeners, corrections, and other fun stuff. Next month will bring the season finale on Eraserhead, with WUH's first real, live guest, which should make it the longest episode to date. 

LANGUAGE WARNING: Please note, the obscene phone calls from the film are exactly that. Only one of the clips contains this language, and it plays between 15:17-15:40




[EPISODE CORRECTION: The murder that the urban legend of The Babysitter and the Man Upstairs is supposedly based on actually took place in 1950 in Missouri.]
