The 1974 Holiday Horror Movie BLACK CHRISTMAS is Getting Remade By Blumhouse
The 1974 holiday slasher film Black Christmas is getting the remake treatment thanks to Blumhouse, the studio that brought us Get Out and the new Halloween movie. While most people think that John Carpenter’s Halloween was the first slasher film, Black Christmas, which was directed by Bob Clark, actually came out four years prior.
The new remake will be directed by Sophia Takal, who directed the great indie horror-drama Always Shine. On top of that, Imogen Poots (Green Room) will star in the film. So, there’s a solid team of talent already attached, which is good. The movie will also star Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O’Grady, Lily Donoghue and Caleb Eberhardt.
The story focused on a group of sorority sisters who are targeted by an insane killer during Christmas. Everything starts out with strange and creepy phone calls from a stranger and it escalates into being stalked by the murderer and killed.
Here’s the synopsis for the remake and you’ll also find a poster at the bottom of the post:
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.
This actually isn’t the first time that Black Christmas has been remade. There was also a remake released on 2006 from director Glen Morgan. If you’ve never seen it, it’s extremely brutal and filled with lots of blood and gore. It wasn’t the best film, but still watchable if you’re into those kinds of films.
Black Christmas is set to be released in theaters on December 3, 2020.
