As seasoned horror fans – we are of course all very aware of Bob Clark’s amazing 1974 slasher Black Christmas – a classic if ever a classic there was – of course, it got the remake treatment back in the early 2000s and this year Blumhouse is going to give it yet another retelling.
Will it bring anything new to the table? Maybe this new, quick, little tease that the land of Blum just shot up on Twitter will lend some insight.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Just in time for the holidays comes a timely take on a cult horror classic as a campus killer comes to face a formidable group of friends in sisterhood. 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.”
Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Lily Donoghue, Brittany O’Grady, Caleb Eberhardt, Simon Mead, and Cary Elwes will all play victims. Sophia Takal directs.
Friday, Dec. 13th – that’s the date you’re looking for – we’ll see you all at the theater.
