The upcoming holiday slasher film Black Christmas first trailer is revealed, which is a remake of the 1974 movie. The story centers on a killer in a black cloak who is on a murdering rampage on a college campus and he ends up facing off with “a formidable group of friends in sisterhood.”
Here’s the synopsis that was shared:
Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. But as Riley Stone (Imogen Poots, Green Room) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters—athlete Marty (Lily Donoghue, The CW’s Jane the Virgin), rebel Kris (Aleyse Shannon, The CW’s Charmed), and foodie Jesse (Brittany O’Grady, Fox’s Star)—prepare to deck the halls with a series of seasonal parties, a black-masked stalker begins killing sorority women one by one.
As the body count rises, Riley and her squad start to question whether they can trust any man, including Marty’s beta-male boyfriend, Nate (Simon Mead, Same But Different: A True New Zealand Love Story), Riley’s new crush Landon (Caleb Eberhardt, Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle) or even esteemed classics instructor Professor Gelson (Cary Elwes).
Whoever the killer is, he’s about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t about to be anybody’s victims.
Black Christmas comes from director Sophia Takal (Always Shine), and it seems like a fun horror movie to watch. Yeah, it looks like it’ll be packed with some goofy horror movie ridiculousness, in it a girl who doesn’t run away as the killer slowly breaks off an ice sickle, then casually walks towards her, and then stabs her with it. Yep, this is why we love such movies.
Blumhouse is set to release the film on December, Friday the 13th.
