Plot summary

What is Black Christmas movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Black Christmas" movie plot summary.

While walking home, Hawthorne College student Lindsay is impaled with an icicle by a masked individual. The rest of Hawthorne College is preparing for the Christmas holiday break. Riley Stone (Imogen Poots), a student at the college's Mu Kappa Epsilon (ฮœฮšฮ•) sorority, is still struggling to move on from being raped by Delta Kappa Omicron (DKO) fraternity president Brian Huntley (Ryan McIntyre). Her sorority sisters Kris (Aleyse Shannon), Marty (Lily Donoghue), Jesse (Brittany O'Grady), and Helena are taking part in the DKO talent show. Kris has drawn the ire of the DKO fraternity and Professor Gelson (Cary Elwes) following a petition from her requesting that university founder and notorious misogynist Calvin Hawthorne's bust be moved from the main building and another requesting Gelson be fired due to his refusal to teach books written by women. Riley learns that Brian will be back in town to oversee the talent show.
The group arrives at the DKO fraternity where Riley catches a glimpse of a strange ritual involving new pledges for DKO and black goo leaking out of the Calvin Hawthorne bust. She stumbles across Helena about to be sexually assaulted by one of the frat boys, saves her, and takes Helena's place in the talent show. Upon seeing Brian in the crowd, she performs a song with her sorority sisters blasting the rape culture at the fraternity and stating that Brian raped her. Meanwhile, Helena is abducted by Lindsay's attacker. The girls start to receive threatening DMs from a Calvin Hawthorne account similar to what Lindsey had received before she was murdered. Sorority sister Fran is killed by the masked man. Riley has a strange encounter with Gelson, where she finds a list of the MKE girls among his papers.
