Dir: Sophia Takal

With: Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon and Lily Donoghue

Runtime: 106 mins

Sophia Takal directs a remake of the bloodthirsty 1974 Canadian horror film about a group of sorority sisters, who receive far more than tidings of comfort and joy from a deranged killer during the festive season.

As the Christmas holidays beckon, students of Hawthorne College prepare to leave campus for the safety of home.

They are blissfully unaware that a hooded figure roams the campus with murderous intentions.

This diabolical figure follows one girl, Helena (Madeleine Adams), home and stabs her with a broken icicle.

Classmates Kris (Aleyse Shannon), Lindsay (Lucy Currey), Marty (Lily Donoghue) and Riley (Imogen Poots) become concerned about Helena's whereabouts and find themselves trapped inside their sorority with the killer.

However, the shrouded predator soon learns that the teenagers aren't helpless victims.

They are valiant survivors, who are willing to mount a fight to the gore-slathered finish to see the dawn of a new term under Professor Gelson (Cary Elwes).
