Black Christmas remake - Blumhouse

Jason Blumhouse seems intent on nabbing up all the golden 80's horror properties, which I guess I am fine with as long as we get some quality stalk and slash.  The last Black Christmas remake was cheesy over-the-top fun where the killer whittles down candy canes with his teeth and stabs unsuspecting airhead sorority girls, but it doesn't hold a candle to the original, which I consider to be one of the essential slasher movies, and a pinnacle of the form, right up there with Halloween and Psycho.  Here's hoping this goes more for the creep out than the gross out, but I will be happy with either.  Just don't make it another horror-lite movie for tweens who need a safe space.
