What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Black Christmas is a remake of the 1974 horror movie set on a college campus. Riley (Imogen Poots) and her friends are celebrating the last week before everyone goes home for the holidays. But when her friend Helena (Madeleine Adams) doesn't come home from a party, Riley starts to suspect foul play. She and her peers find out that a masked murderer has been killing sorority girls on campus. As they fight for their lives, the young women discover a sinister plot involving one of the fraternities, a well-liked professor (Cary Elwes), and a long history of covered-up murders. Despite the colorful Christmas decorations, expect lots of gory, gruesome violence, as well as sexual references, drinking, and strong language.
