1974 appeared with Black Christmas a pioneer of the Slasher genre. The film, in which a group of college students stay in their dorm over the Christmas holidays just to be slaughtered by a killer, quickly reached cult status. After 2006, a first remake of the Slasher movie already appeared, soon the second remake of the classic in the cinema. The trailer of Black Christmas promises exciting and scary scenes and a lot of action. In contrast to the original, the girls defend themselves neatly. The trailer suggests that the murderer comes from a male fraternity and follows the murders of a kind of ritual. But the young women do not want to put up with that and arm themselves for a fight. Who expects a pure Slasher horror movie will be disappointed. Nevertheless, the remake should be interesting, especially for fans of the original.
Now the FSK has awarded the German age rating for Black Christmas. Like the original and the first remake from 2006, Black Christmas will also be released from 2019, ages 16+. Cinemagoers can look forward to creepy and brutal Christmas.
