Storyline Heading
Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. But as Riley Stone and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters-athlete Marty, rebel Kris, and foodie Jesse -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, Riley's new crush Landon or even esteemed classics instructor Professor Gelson. Whoever the killer is, he's about to discover that this generation's young women aren't about to be anybody's victims.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Mystery Thriller - Despite having a PG-13 rating and having very little bloodshed, this second loose remake of the '70s cult horror movie is not for kids, with some intense moments of violence, strong language, and mature themes involving rape. Imogen Poots and Cary Elwes are the two familiar faces in the film. Females, especially teens and young adult ones, are target.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...while none of the film's more unbelievable plot elements are necessarily wrong-headed, they do feel tacked on in ways that the rest of "Black Christmas” does not. Thankfully, Takal and Wolfe's remake mostly feels personal and urgent thanks to some atmospheric scare scenes and some sharp dialogue ...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average Takal and co-screenwriter April Wolfe obviously aim to update Black Christmas for the Me Too era, but they settle for hollow wish fulfillment rather than meaningful social critique.

The Guardian Full Review
Poor ...woke slasher remake is an unholy, unscary mess... The second attempt to resurrect the 1974 campus-set horror is a well-intentioned yet ultimately unconvincing modernisation. It's an unwieldy and messy thing, drearily directed and boringly written...
