Black Christmas [AKA Silent Night, Evil Night] (1974, dir. Bob Clark)

A police investigation begins when a female student goes missing. Influential proto-slasher movie with giallo touches, this twice-remade movie has aspects of the cop procedural as well as originating several horror genre tropes. It stands up pretty well, with well-rounded characters and a none-more-70s visual sensibility.
