Should we be concerned about the Black Christmas remake?

Last week we had the surprising news that Blumhouse is developing a reboot of 1974’s Black Christmas.

The Bob Clark slasher is considered slasher royalty as the mysterious ‘Billy’ terrorises a group of sorority girls at Christmas.

The reason for our concern is that Bloody Disgusting is reporting that the film, which is due out in just under 6 months time hasn’t started filming yet.

Being set around Christmas and filming in summer/autumn seems quite a tricky task and sent a few alarms bells ringing. Hopefully, we won’t have any CGI snow on Black Christmas 2019!

The synopsis is as follows –

Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. One by one, sorority girls on campus are being killed by an unknown stalker. But the killer is about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t willing to become hapless victims as they mount a fight to the finish.

Black Christmas is directed by Sophie Takal (Into the Dark) and will star Cary Elwes in an unnamed role, and be released on Friday 13th December 2019.

What do you think of the Black Christmas remake? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Don’t understand why they need to do another remake, I love the 70s horror scene and Own a few, then several years ago black Christmas had a remake and now another, I did enjoy the story but to do it again seems a little bit like they have definitely ran out of ideas, I just wish they would come up with an original story which no one has seen before, I love a good surprise, which is why remakes always slightly miss the mark for me.
