Episode 49: Black Christmas
Christmas is coming early this year…and it’s murder! This week, Peaches and Michael are making some lewd phone calls in celebration of 1974’s BLACK CHRISTMAS! In addition to discussing this cult classic’s contributions to the foundations of the slasher genre, our hosts delve into why comedy is an essential part of its dark DNA. Joining the conversation is none other than one of the film’s stars, Lynne Griffin, who offers up some behind-the-scenes stories and reflects on nearly five decades of festive fright. Then, Paul Downey and David Hastings, the authors of IT’S ME, BILLY – BLACK CHRISTMAS REVISITED, stop by to talk about the lasting impact of this definitive holiday horror. From glass unicorns to Margot Kidder’s method acting, this holiday special has it all! Go!
