Black Christmas Film Remake - A Mean Girls Wannabe Failure?



Is the Black Christmas film remake a Mean Girls wannabe failure? #BlackChristmas #SophiaTakal #remake I love Christmas horror films and any scary movies, but sometimes it’s best to not remake a classic. Especially if you’re just going to try and be Mean Girls. Did you see the trailer and then rush out to see the full movie or buy the DVD or blu ray? I’d love to know your own reviews if you saw it in the cinema or streamed it online! You can scroll down for more information, or check out the Rotten Tomatoes rating, IMDb page, or Wikipedia article!
