First Trailer For BLACK CHRISTMAS Wishes Us a Happy Horrific Murderous Holiday
The first trailer has been released for the holiday slasher film Black Christmas, which is a remake of the 1974 film. The story focuses on a killer in a black cloak who is on a murdering spree 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 looks like it could be a fun horror flick. Yeah, it looks like it’ll be filled with some silly horror movie ridiculousness, like a young girl who doesn’t run away as the killer slowly breaks off an ice sickle, then slowly walks towards her, and then kills her with it. But, that’s one of the reasons why I enjoy watching these kinds of movies!
Blumhouse is set to release the film on December, Friday the 13th.
