Manchester Evening News - - FILM REVIEWS -

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 vil­lain 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 teen 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).
