Bob Clark's creepy, atmospheric Toronto-shot thriller about an unseen killer stalking the inhabitants of a sorority house on Christmas Eve may be our country's most influential contribution to the horror genre, its inventive camerawork, ruthlessly clever scares and shocking violence crystallizing the tropes that would define the "slasher" cycle of the 1980s and beyond.

Tourné à Toronto par Bob Clark, ce film à suspense atmosphérique et sinistre suit un mystérieux meurtrier qui traque les membres d'une sororité la veille de Noël. Figurant parmi les films d'horreur canadiens les plus importants, Noël tragique révèle une caméra inventive, des sursauts bien pensés et de choquantes scènes de violence; des caractéristiques typiques du style slasher, qui s'est popularisé plus tard, à partir des années 1980.
