The Blumhouse and Universal remake of Bob Clark’s 1974 “Black Christmas” hit theaters over the weekend, and absolutely bombed.
Opening up with just a $4.4 million gross, severely below tracking services’ expected $10 million, the film also received a Cinemascore of D+. “Black Christmas” is directed by Sophia Takal (Always Shine), who penned the script with April Wolfe.
The project stars Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Lily Donoghue, and Brittany O’Grady, among others. Jason Blum, Adam Hendricks, and Ben Cosgrove produced the remake along with executive producers Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno, Greg Gilreath, and Zac Locke.
You can check out the film’s synopsis and trailer below:
“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) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters – athlete Marty (Lily Donoghue), rebel Kris (Aleyse Shannon), and foodie Jesse (Brittany O’Grady) – 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), Riley’s new crush Landon (Caleb Eberhardt) 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.”
