Blumhouse announced the new film on Thursday, set for release Friday, Dec. 13, along with a creepy teaser poster.

Directed by Sophia Takal and co-written by Takal and April Wolfe, the new take on “Black Christmas” centres on the sorority girls of Hawthorne College, who become the targets of a serial murderer.

But in a modern twist, the killer has no idea what he’s gotten himself into as the strong-willed women of the sorority refuse to become his hapless victims.
