Blumhouse Rebooting Black Christmas for Universal
Imogen Poots will star in the feature releasing later this year.
By Chris Morse
We can never get enough Christmas horror here at Dead Entertainment, so we are certainly pleased to report that Blumhouse and Universal are remaking Black Christmas and it will be hitting theaters this December! The original film debuted back in 1974 and was directed by Bob Clark, who also directed another classic in A Christmas Story, which is as fun of a fact as you could ask for.
The story follows a group of sorority girls who are being stalked by a stranger... one who calls them from inside the house! The film was remade back in 2006 and it didn't quite do justice to the original, so a Blumhouse-produced effort is certainly more than welcome. Given the company's track record for horror, we think this one is no doubt in good hands.
Starring in the Black Christmas remake is Imogen Poots (Green Room, 28 Weeks Later), Aleyse Shannon (Charmed), Brittany O’Grady (Star), Lily Donoghue (Halt and Catch Fire), and Caleb Eberhardt (The Post). Directing is Sophia Takal, who recently helmed an episode of Hulu's Into the Dark titled "New Year, New You." She also co-wrote the script alongside April Wolfe.
The film will hit theaters on December 13th, 2019. As always, stick around with us here on Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this project and everything else horror.
