Part of Night of the 1000 Knives

Two days before Christmas, 1971. While the Manson-like “Christmas Killers” paint the walls of American homes with blood, Samantha learns that she is left behind in the Blackvale boarding school. She is joined by Clara, her lone she-wolf fellow student giving off strong Wednesday Addams vibes, as well as the young teacher Rose and her boyfriend, school cafeteria cook Jimmy. Of course, the murderous quartet knocks at the school gates just in time for Christmas, hatching demonic plans. But there’s more to the Blackvale girls than meets the eye. Jenn Wexler delivers a delightful holiday slasher in the grand tradition of the genre. (me)
