Bob Clark's 1974 thriller Black Christmas is often cited as the birth of the slasher movie, and its influence can be seen in everything from Halloween to When a Stranger Calls. Clark's film was already remade unsuccessfully in 2006, but that hasn't stopped Hollywood taking another crack at it.

Sophia Takal is in the director's chair for this one, with Imogen Poots, Lily Donoghue, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O'Grady, Simon Mead, Caleb Eberhardt and Cary Elwes starring.

The official synopsis reads:

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, Green Room) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters-athlete Marty (Lily Donoghue, The CW's Jane the Virgin), rebel Kris (Aleyse Shannon, The CW's Charmed), and foodie Jesse (Brittany O'Grady, Fox's Star)-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, Same But Different: A True New Zealand Love Story), Riley's new crush Landon (Caleb Eberhardt, Amazon's Mozart in the Jungle) 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.
