Dreaming of a 'Black Christmas'? Watch the trailer for the horror remake

Summer may not quite be over, but the holidays are right around the corner. Today, Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions are spreading good cheer in the form of the first Black Christmas trailer. The upcoming horror reimagining hails from director Sophia Takal (Always Shine), working from a script she wrote with April Wolfe (Widower). Check out the trailer in the player below, but be warned: if you’re not familiar with the 1974 original, this trailer may reveal more plot details than you might like.

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.

Black Christmas is produced by Jason Blum for his Blumhouse Productions, by Ben Cosgrove and by Adam Hendricks for Divide/Conquer. Blumhouse’s Couper Samuelson and Jeanette Volturno will executive produce with Divide/Conquer’s Greg Gilreath and Zac Locke.
