‘Black Christmas’ Trailer Arrives From Blumhouse and Universal

Today Universal Pictures revealed a two-and-a-half minutes trailer for their upcoming Christmas-themed slasher flick Black Christmas. Directed by Sophia Takal, the film stars Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O’Grady, Lily Donoghue, Caleb Eberhardt, Cary Elwes and Simon Mead.

 The movie is described as:

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.

 

This release will mark a new take on the 1974 classic which starred Olivia Hussey, Margot Kidder and John Saxon and followed sorority sisters being hunted by an escaped maniac.

Black Christmas is scheduled for release on December 13, 2019. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for the latest on this film.
