I love watching movies. I have special fondness for Christmas movies of all kinds. Lately, I’ve been hitting Netflix hard for cheesy holiday films. Now it’s time to add in a few horror flicks into the rotation. If you do a search online for “Horror Christmas Movies,” quite a few come up. Some are very slasheresque–what with a lot of blood and scantily clothed women. These aren’t really my cup of tea. I do like some substance to my horror and trust me, there are a ton of amazing choices. Although I’ve chosen just a few, I hope to discover more to share with you as it gets closer to December 25th.
A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY
IMBD Summary: Interwoven stories that take place on Christmas Eve, as told by one festive radio host: A family brings home more than a Christmas tree, a student documentary becomes a living nightmare, a Christmas spirit terrorizes, Santa slays evil.
Ever hear of William Shatner? Well both he and George Buza star in this movie. I like that there are multiple stories told and they eventually come together in the end. Definitely one that will keep the attention of the watcher.
RARE EXPORTS: A CHRISTMAS TALE
IMBD Summary: In the depths of the Korvatunturi mountains, 486 meters deep, lies the closest ever guarded secret of Christmas. The time has come to dig it up. This Christmas everyone will believe in Santa Claus.
Finding Santa frozen in Finland and holding him hostage? What an interesting concept. While subtitles often scare me, I think this is one to watch!
IMBD Summary: A boy who has a bad Christmas ends up accidentally summoning a festive demon to his family home.
This has to be one of my favorite horror films. I always watch this in December. And this is a big one, featuring stars such as Adam Scott and Toni Collette!
ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE
IMB Summary: A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven – at Christmas – forcing Anna and her friends to fight, slash and sing their way to survival, facing the undead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. But they soon discover that no one is safe in this new world, and with civilization falling apart around them, the only people they can truly rely on are each other.
While I’ve never seen this one, it’s right up my Buffy-loving alley. I am super excited to get to this one. Not only do I love Zombies, but I also have an affinity for cheesy musicals. This has it all!!!
