Black Christmas is an upcoming American slasher film directed by Sophia Takal. It is the second loose remake of the 1974 Canadian film of the same name. Takal says even though it’s very, very loosely based on Black Christmas, the plot is extremely different. ‘It’s more inspired by the feeling that Black Christmas made me feel watching it, this idea of misogyny always being out there and never totally eradicable. So that was the jumping-off point for how I came up with this plot. I’d compare it more to how Luca Guadagnino remade Suspiria than to a straight-ahead remake.’
The film stars Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Lily Donoghue, Brittany O’Grady Caleb Eberhardt, Simon Mead and Cary Elwes. Takal cowrote Black Christmas with April Wolfe. The plot is about a group of women who are sorority sisters, who start going missing, one by one. The remaining sisters have to figure out why these women are disappearing and who’s responsible for it. The protagonists discover that the killer is part of an underground college conspiracy, and the killer discovers that this generation’s young women aren’t willing to become hapless victims as they mount a fight to the finish.
