Bob Clark is the directorial king of the holiday season. His A Christmas Story dominates the turf once belonging to Frank Capra’s It’s A Wonderful Life. Clark’s tale of an old fashioned Christmas with Darren McGavin (Kolchak: The Night Stalker) wasn’t his first holiday themed movie. Although odd are high that your mother doesn’t want any ornaments from Bob Clark’s Black Christmas. Now it’s coming to Blu-ray as a perfect last minute stocking stuff. Also coming out on Dec. 13 is Dreamscape that puts more than sugarplums in children’s heads. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:

The college town of Bedford is receiving an unwelcome guest this Christmas. As the residents of sorority house Pi Kappa Sig prepare for the festive season, a stranger begins to stalk the house.
A series of obscene phone calls start to plague the residents of the sorority and it becomes clear that a psychopath is homing in on the sisters with dubious intentions. And though the police try to trace the calls, they discover that nothing is as it seems during this Black Christmas.
Directed by Bob Clark (A Christmas Story, Porky’s) and starring a fantastic cast that includes Margot Kidder (Superman), Olivia Hussey (Romeo & Juliet), John Saxon (A Nightmare on Elm Street & Enter the Dragon) and Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey), Black Christmas finally comes to Blu-ray in a definitive presentation of the holiday horror classic.

Close your eyes and the adventure begins.
Alex Gardner (Dennis Quaid) is a man with an incredible psychic gift… but for years has used it solely for personal gain. Reuniting with his old mentor, Dr. Novotny (Max von Sydow), Gardner joins a government project in which he learns to channel his abilities in order to enter peoples’ subconscious through their dreams. As his powers grow, the young psychic soon finds himself in a living nightmare of conspiracy and murder… and the only way out is to go back in.
Dreamscape’s reputation as a cult classic has only grown over the years. Its impressive cast (including Christopher Plummer, Kate Capshaw, Eddie Albert, David Patrick Kelly, and George Wendt), behind-the-camera talent such as director Joseph Ruben (The Stepfather) and co-writer Chuck Russell (A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, 1988’s The Blob), and rousing mix of science fiction, adventure, and horror have ensured its legacy as a dream come true for ’80s genre enthusiasts.
