I loved the original Black Christmas. Is this one any good/ does it do the first one any justice?

Its ok. A little b cheese, but I think that was the intention.

Touches on incest / and other disturbing issues. Definitely not a bad flick, but I cant recommend as a blind buy.

It's a decent flick, for most a rental at best. It's a definite buy for me though.

For people that saw it in the theaters, how do you think the PQ will translate to HD-DVD? The only thing I got from the previews was that it looks very dark.

Lot's of violence and some gore, not for the squeamish. The film probably won't be a showcase due to the dark nature of the film and it being Genius it will probably use mpeg4. I see it being a tier 2 at least. Still better to have it in HD than not.

It's an awful, awful movie. Horrible characters, unscary, and completely unsure of itself in terms of tone. The reshoots are obvious as hell. I won't even get into how much of a disappointment it is considering the fact the original film is incredibly good. As of now, Black Christmas '06 is just a very sub-standard slasher flick.

I loved this movie, I personally think the original was very dumb and confusing. This one while still confusing, it's more mysterious and actually shows Billy.

The movie gave me chills, and will be a definate pick up for me, I will pay no more than $40 though.

Since not a single HD has ever been $40 (except boxsets) that won't be an issue.

I believe Weinstein is definitely in the habit of using TrueHD...

I saw it on standard dvd, and I think that the dark mood in contrast with the christmas lights and decorations would look good in HD. As for the movie itself, I think most fans of horror could appreciate it, there is a seemingly purposeful influence of b-movie cinematography to it.

I have the HD DVD, and it looks stunning. One of the better HD DVD transfers, and a high tier 2 according to the revamped tier system.

I really dug the film in theaters so I pre-ordered it with Amazon.com. Cannot wait for Tuesday.
