We didn’t get around to posting the first trailer for the third version of Black Christmas, though I gather it was very spoilery. This second one isn’t too bad in that respect, and it looks like we could be in for a decent sorority house slasher with – surprise surprise – a feminist twist, though you can gleam the latter from the official synopsis below. Of course the question is whether people will want to see yet another Black Christmas, especially seeing how the first remains such a classic.
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.
