Blumhouse and director Sophia Takal‘s new take on Bob Clark’s slasher classic Black Christmas is headed to theaters on December 13, and the trailer has come down the chimney today. This is of course the second remake of the 1974 film, following Black X-Mas in 2006.
In the new film, Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. One by one, sorority girls on campus are being killed by an unknown stalker…
But the killer is about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t willing to become hapless victims as they mount a fight to the finish.
The trailer promises a very different take on the proto-slasher, with a masked killer(s) doing the stalking and slashing. And seemingly a cult at the center of all the mayhem.
One thing’s for certain: these sisters don’t plan on running…
Green Room actress Imogen Poots, Cary Elwes (Saw, “Stranger Things” 3), Aleyse Shannon (Charmed), Brittany O’Grady (Star), Lily Donoghue (The Goldbergs, Jane the Virgin) and Caleb Eberhardt (Broadway’s Choir Boy) will star in Takal’s holiday horror remake.
Takal (star of our V/H/S and director of Always Shine and the recent “Into the Dark” episode “New Year, New You”) directed a script written with April Wolfe.
