    Don't tell Bill O'Reilly, but <em>Black Christmas</em>&nbsp;does indeed declare war on the holiday--a depraved slasher remake combining sorority girls and a killer Santa.

Synopsis
An examination of how a false accusuation of sexual abuse and blatant homophobia worked to wreak havoc on the lives of two innocent Michigan men for well over a decade. Before Stephens Matthews came out as a homosexual in his early teens, he fathered a son by his girlfriend. On one of the son's visits to see his father, he arrives with a black eye and Stephen is sure that his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend is responsible. However, when he tries to confront the boyfriend, Stephen finds that the boy has accused his father, grandfather, and even his grandmother, of sexual molestation. While the charges against the grandmother are dropped, Melvin and Stephen are swiftly convicted -- with no evidence besides the boy's murky and unreliable testimony.
