Co-Writer Defends BLACK CHRISTMAS PG-13 Rating

Blumhouse and director Sophia Takal’s remake of Bob Clark’s Christmas slasher classic Black Christmas will be hitting a theater near you – you guessed it – this Christmas.

Yesterday we reported the MPAA slapped the remake with a PG-13 rating for violence, terror, thematic content involving sexual assault, language, sexual material, and drinking.

And today, co-writer April Wolfe took to Twitter to defend the PG-13 rating, writing:

Here’s the deal: We wrote it with an R in mind. When they did the test screenings, was clear that this movie needed to be available to a younger female audience because the subject matter is timely. Also, I want to indoctrinate girls into horror. Doesn’t make it any less vicious!

This new remake centers on Hawthorne College which is quieting down for the holidays. Then wouldn’t you just know it, one by one, sorority girls on campus are being killed by a stalker. But the killer is about to discover that this generation’s women aren’t willing to become hapless victims as they fight back.

Directed by Sophia Takal (New Year, New You) from a screenplay she co-wrote along with April Wolfe based on the original film by A. Roy Moore, this version of Black Christmas is produced by Jason Blum, Ben Cosgrove, and Adam Hendricks.

It stars Imogen Poots, Lily Donoghue, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany, O’Grady, Caleb Eberhardt, Simon Mead, and Cary Elwes. Universal Pictures will unleash the Blumhouse Production on December 13, 2019 – coinciding with Friday the 13th.

    R rated horror films have always been accessible to underage people. They gravitate to them because of the taboo nature of them. Strip away the R rating, you strip away the appeal.

    Given that my mother is the one who raised my sister and I on horror, well, the reasoning here just doesn’t hold water.
