Black Christmas Announcement

Blumhouse Announces “Black Christmas” Reimagining

Blumhouse, the leading brand for low-budget horror, has a new franchise to unravel as they announce that Black Christmas will terrify audiences this holiday season.

The film, which is a reimagining of the 1974 slasher hit, will reunite director Sophia Takal with the powerhouse producer.  The two collaborated on the Suki Waterhouse and Carly Chalkin starrer New Year, New You, the January film in the highly publicized Hulu anthology series.

The film’s main story arc centers around a group of sorority sisters at the fictitious Hawthorne College who find themselves prey to a serial killer over the otherwise quiet holiday period.  But this group is different than those of the past as they ban together to fight, refusing to surrender themselves as the helpless victims that cinema history would ask of them.

A true gift that keeps giving, the original film was reimagined via a 2006 namesake remake.  This will mark yet another revisit to the age-old property, though in the hands of Blumhouse we would be crazy not to expect a high return.

Starring Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O’Grady, Lily Donoghue, and Caleb Eberhardt, Black Christmas will slash its way into theaters on the truly appropriate December 13.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
