Black Christmas is a 2019 American slasher film directed by Sophia Takal, and written by Takal and April Wolfe. It is the second loose remake of the 1974 Canadian film Black Christmas, after the 2006 film, following a group of sorority sisters preyed upon by an unknown stalker. The film stars Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Lily Donoghue, Brittany O'Grady, Caleb Eberhardt, and Cary Elwes.
Development of the film began in June 2019 when Jason Blum announced that he would be producing a second remake of the 1974 film through his studio Blumhouse Productions. On the same day, Sophia Takal joined the project as director and co-writer. Principal photography began soon after the announcement and took place in New Zealand during 27 days.
Black Christmas was released by Blumhouse Productions & Universal Pictures in North American theaters on December 13, 2019 by Universal Pictures, coinciding with Friday the 13th. It received mixed reviews from critics and has grossed $18.5 million worldwide.
