Remaking Black Christmas: My Casting Choices

I know what you’re thinking! “Karli, there were 2 remakes of Black Christmas already! Why are you talking about another one??” Although I enjoyed the 2006 film, I felt it failed to capture the magic and mystery that the original Black Christmas provided. One of the best aspects of this film is that it perfectly combined horror and comedy. The characters provided depth and real personality. For this article, I wanted to pick a cast that I think could do the characters justice! I hope you enjoy and let me know who you would choose! And if you would like to see my other casting choices, please check out my Remake Collection! (REMINDER: this is just hypothetical fun! I love and respect everyone mentioned and this series isn’t meant to tear anyone down or be disrespectful!!)
