First Trailer For Cult Horror Remake

Universal has dropped a new trailer for Blumhouse’s Black Christmas, a remake of 1974’s original starring Olivia Hussey and Margot Kidder.

Directed by Sophia Takal, the new Black Christmas has the slasher check-list covered, Sorority sisters, girls walking home alone at night, and a psycho slasher hellbent on killing them.

The remake follows the same plot as the original where a killer hunts down college students during Christmas break.

Here’s the trailer:

The film was written by April Wolf, who offers this new spin on Bob Clark’s 1974 original. Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O’Grady, Lily Donoghue, Caleb Eberhardt, and Cary Elwes star.

This looks fairly rank. I like the original, but what is this? You sense they rushed production quickly to pump this out before Christmas, and it hardly seems worth it. Almost everything appears to be revealed in the trailer.

Black Christmas hits theaters on December 13th.
