Black Christmas

Hawthorne College is quietening down for the holidays. But as Riley Stone (Imogen Poots) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters – athlete Marty (Lily Donoghue), rebel Kris (Aleyse Shannon), and foodie Jesse (Brittany O’Grady) – 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), Riley’s new crush Landon (Caleb Eberhardt), 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. 

If you are finding the silly season too saccharine, this bold new take on the 1974 slasher classic from Blumhouse Productions and director Sophia Takal might be for you! 

‘The thing that makes Black Christmas most endearing is the strength of its sisterhood’ – The Austin Chronicle   

‘A fun film that gets its kicks out of literally smashing the patriarchy’ – Los Angeles Times
