344) Deathdream (1974) Dir: Bob Clark Date Released: August 1974 Date Seen: October 23, 2010 Rating: 3/5
I prefer Black Christmas only by a scooch because, well, how to put this? Bob Clark wasn't the most polished filmmaker ever either. At least he was able to sustain a mood throughout Black Christmas; here, he's got some great ideas and some really creepy images. He just didn't know what to do with already rather limited resources at his disposal. Still, I really like it in bits and spurts, especially the sound of the creaking rocking chair and the very last scene.
