As the time of Christmas carols, red and green lights displayed everywhere approaches and no Freddy Krueger in site, to relieve the joys of horror fans, this article serves as the best way to manage the holiday season that lost its meaning long ago and replaced it with commercialization and endless cheery music and movies. UGH! Therefore, before the drowning in eggnog here’s a Christmas horror film a 31 day-to-day film guide to guide through the tortures of this time of year. One must admit that over 45-horror Christmas theme movies exist, and ideally the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (which contains horror related items) find some themselves omitted. Although, the list has no exact order to watch them all, one should note that some do list a date as a suggestion of when the film matches with history.
Christmas Evil (1980) from director Lewis Jackson, original title You Better Watch Out, a holiday cheering tune and yet still acclaimed as a best Christmas tale, and provides a warning to parents about the psychological scars imprinted on their child’s mind about the falsehood that Santa is a fake. In this sub-genre, the comedy runs under the dark terror of the storyline where one, scar child now an adult becomes obsessed with the selfish behavior of children and parents alike that causes him to SNAP! A trivia this film marked actor’s Jeffrey DeMunn first time venture into the horror genre and if one’s recalls had spill his guts on The Walking Dead (TV Series).
Now, one can have their night complete with a double feature, of Black Christmas (1974) and then the remake from 2006, at the hands of Glen Morgan. Allow us first to start with the original from the hands of Bob Clark, who coincidentally director also, A Christmas Story, however this story takes sorority sisters, with a foul mouth Barb (Margot Kidder) trades comments to a disturbed Prowler, while the terrorizing and gift wrapping some of them. The police headed by John Saxon, a role of police officer would reprise in another ten years, in A Nightmare on Elm Street, begin to grow concerns when a 13-year-old is found dead, and sorority house has calls from within its own domain. Jess (Olivia Hussey), a woman who’s considering an abortion becomes a central figure in this dark tale, what shall become of her. Then there’s the remake, released actually on Christmas day in 2006, and blessed with some criticism from religious organizations, however the reception met with drowsy response from fans. Even though the storyline gives more background of the character Billy, who later creates a new fashionable way of using Christmas lights, that even Clark Griswold would never conceive of in the first place. Billy even shows his masterful cookie cutting skills to his dear mother, who after had incestuous relationship with him to create his sister, Agnes. A most odd scene involving, Billy (Robert Mann) and a candy cane to kill – diabetics warning society of the dangers too much sugar. Kelly is portrayed by Katie Cassidy, who many may realize has starred in three horror remakes, and while she is, join by Andrea Martin, who played a sorority sister in the original and in this version is the house mother.
Since, one night with remakes may not please oneself, an evening of two sequels might be better, with Jack Frost (1997), not the one with Michael Keaton, the feature film from director Michael Cooney. The film achieved the cult status level recently, even though the storyline gets a tad chilly, with a serial killer, Jack Frost coming back to life as a snowman, thanks to some snow and genetic material, except this one is not a friendly frost fellow, rather a murderous villain. However, in the town of Snowmonton, what can stop a killer snowman, Jack, (Scott MacDonald) only Sheriff Sam Tiler (Christopher Allport) can resolve the matter, and melt away the damnation. The film contains so many bad aspects that Santa would run out of coal for this picture, yet is the so-bad-it’s-good concept, complete with fallout from a rape from a carrot carry creature. The second sequel, Jack Frost 2: Revenge of the Mutant Killer Snowman, had both actors Scott MacDonald and Christopher Allport reprising their respective roles, except this would mark Allport’s last entry into the horror genre to date. Michael Cooney brings this storyline back, with the humiliated sheriff Tiler and Jack’s witted remarks similar to Chucky, however, no longer in Snowmonton, now place in the tropics. Jack’s transformation comes in the form of all things liquid that convert into ice references, including and ice anvil, icicles, and even an ice cube that gives new meaning to the term brain freeze. The heat does not get to Jack, the body count mounts, like and wicked blizzard, and allows for more insanity in plot and helps you deal with the insanity of the season.
Krampus: The Christmas Devil (2013) based from folklore, as a creature kidnapping children who do evil without confession, punishment and/or penances, hence linking the beast with Christian religions (perhaps as suggested pre-Christian i.e. pagan rites), and is brother to Santa. While Santa portrayed as a holly jolly man, Krampus appears as deformed, menacing and evil, and thrown into the mix Jeremy (A.J. Leslie) a local officer now hunting to stop the creature of mythological portions, and Bill Oberst Jr. stars; too. This creature needs to hurry up his mission, the disrespectful children nowadays, bullying and cruelty to others and even animals, need a visit from this beast. Individuals who work at a mall or retail store about folklore man-beast and let them view this movie to vent their building anger during this season. A purely trivial point, Krampus interest for many has grown similar to that of the Jersey Devil, and a sequel slated for completion in 2015.
The Toybox (2005) begins with innocence, a red flag for the basic horror fans, of two children Berenice and Brian, obsessed with local folklore and that she has mystic powers as a reincarnated witch, who possess the righteous to dominate others, and her younger suffers emotional issues from her position. Serveral years she (Caludine Spiteri) returns with a boyfriend just in time for Christmas, and the folklore seems to grow more powerful and attacking from within and outside. The film from Paolo Sedazzari has subtle references to many powerful subject material including overtones of an incestuous nature between the children, though more one-side and a bit imaginary from Brian’s (Elliott Jordon) point of view.
Two Front Teeth (2006) originally released on Halloween, and yet the title plays of the song All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth, debut on December 6, 1947 hence the sixth one on the list. As is the case with most Christmas horror films, the comedy lends itself into the storyline, and writer Jamie Nash, does not fail, working as director with David Thomas Sckrabulis, bringing Gabe Snow a so-call writer of tabloids. His latest scoop, an airplane crashed on a foggy Christmas Eve, by a red-nose creature (Rudolph) but wait, there’s more to the story, and the plot goes completely off-course, envision a Vampire Santa and Zombie Elves, who desire to spread blood and gore on the white snow. By this point of holiday season, you have unpacked the decorations, stringing the lights, and tired of the songs, so what better way to relax at night then with an insane film as Gabe (Johnny Francis Wolf) battles zombie elves, evil nuns, and Clausferatu (Josh Buchbinder).
Santa’s Slay (2005), a Lionsgate Home Entertainment, that presents over –the-top comedy throughout this horror flick, and stars Bill Goldberg a former professional wrestler as Santa Claus, sets out on Christmas Eve, and quickly slaughters with sheer brutality a family enjoying Christmas dinner and each other. Bill dishes the worst assault ever, far greater that his previous matches, with stabbings, force feedings, and one’s person definitely gets red face. An in-movie joke surrounds the personal lives of some real actors’ lives, such James Caan, Rebecca Gayheart and Fran Drescher – can you figure it out? Unsure – later in the film, someone gets murdered by a religious item, also to add to the religion overtones, is that Santa’s sleigh has “hell-deer” and leads to the back story. Santa is Satan’s son, who lost a bet in curling, to an Angel, but terms of it, have eclipsed and now the demon Santa slash, slays all to the bells of hell. The ending of this film involves a Zamboni and a bazooka, and a Grandpa.
P2 (2007) refers to a parking level and section, and most people have parked in one at some point in their lives, especially during the holiday season, who lurks in the shadows, or wanders the parking supposedly looking for their park. Writer Alexandre Aja works a wonderful script the places an aspiring business-woman stalked by psychotic individual after locked in a parking garage on Christmas Eve. This film works very well as almost all of the viewers have experience a form of disorientation in a parking lot, and then director Franck Khalfoun heightens the terror, with shifting shadows, echoing sounds, causing one to hurried the thought process for correct decisions and physical responses. The entire cast does a wonderful job of presenting the terror in different levels and suggestions, some bold and other subtle work very well.

A quirky plot of in-store Santa and elves create a vendetta with another Santa (CKY’s Deron Miller) and therein – SNAP – the bodies start stacking faster than wrapping gifts.

Elves (1989) a forgotten late 80s direct-to-video horror films from the mind of Jeffrey Mandel, with the film touching on another sub-genre of horror, nazi experiments add-in quite a bit of T&A, and the result a b-movie center on sinister elves. The elves summoned to assist in selective cross-breeding in order to develop the proven superhuman soldiers, however Santa Claus (Dan Haggerty) the hope to stop the Nazis.

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010) a mostly foreign film, and yet still highly entertaining hails from Finland, and directed by Jalmari Helander about a highly protected and guarded secret bury in the depths of Korvatunturi Mountains, whose time has come for exposure.

Sean Cain, the director and writer, leads the production with L.A.P.D. heroes Frank (Jack Forcinito) and Nash (Andy Hopper) battling over the zombies Frank’s wife, Sarah, makes for a volatile situation. This film contains many elements of trivia, thereby serving a present for horror fans, thanks to Sean, a huge Universal Monster Movie fan, using the Frank’s last name Talbot and Else (Felissa Rose), for respectively referencing The Wolf Man (1941) and The Bride of Frankenstein (1935), watch-out for more points in the movie. In addition, many of the zombies have interesting names and/ or actions, such as a Santa Zombie and Michael J. Fox (Shane Ryan).
Silent Night, Bloody Night (1972) features John Carradine, in a non-speaking role, as Charlie Towman and that is just one of the creepy aspects of horror tale for a weak link to Christmas. Jeffrey grandson to the original owner inherits his house, and yet townsfolk skeptical of him and the place as it is highly feared a serial killer roams the landscape or ghosts exist. Perhaps it all relates back to Wilford’s tragic accident or murder on Christmas Eve, time, truth and will tell the secrets. Mary Woronov stars in one of 24 horror films, a seasoned pro in delivering talent to this film, with director Theodore Gershuny (R.I.P. 2007), and using point of view shots tiptoeing into the incestuous relationships, rape and borderline horror rules now commonplace in the scenes.
Alien Raiders (2008) sets itself a timeline of five days before Christmas, in Arizona, with a group of masked desperadoes invade, and they aren’t seeking eggnog, although a fruitcake does come to mind, as they hunt for vicious extraterrestrials.

David (Brian Geraghty most noted for his recurring role on Chicago P.D.) takes the lead in the film, under direction of David Books and follows Chris Sparling’s screenplay even though coal lies ahead for the co-workers.
Gremlins, (1984) the often forgotten Christmas tale, from the creative hands of director Joe Dante, when a young man, Zach Galligan decides to ignore three very important rules, and unleashes from the cute cuddly Gizmo, the Gremlins. They, the Gremlins, destroy with insane chaos the picturesque town of Kingston Falls, and cause tremendous problems for Dick Miller and Phoebe Cates.

Silent Night brings a beautiful sparkle the scene with the appearance of Jessica Cameron, another addition to the scream queen ranks.
Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), a holiday favorite of horror fans, and require viewing each season, and recommend viewing it on Christmas Eve, for the uninformed, Tim Burton created the story and characters and Henry Selick director the animation film. Jack Skellington the reigning king of Halloweentown finds Christmas Town, confuses the concept and rains hell and spookiest of toy down upon the children and families. Danny Elfman and Chris Sarandon shared responsibilities for Jack’s voice, with Catherine O’Hara as Sally, with Edward Ivory portraying Santa and many other noted actors providing voices for the characters. This film truly prepares a horror fan for the next day, with the right mentality and the ability to endure all the mind-numbing Christmas Spirit elements.
Still seeking to escape on the 25th, perhaps a 5-part sequel is right up your alley, so if the children are screaming and the mother-in-law frustration becoming a tad too much for one to handle then this treat might solve that problem, especially if you didn’t get that new chainsaw or axe that you wanted. Director Charles E. Sellier Jr. brings the story from author Paul transforming it into Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984), an obvious play on words of the holiday hymn “Silent Night, Holy Night” by Franz Gruber and Joseph Mohr, however herein, there’s not quite a silent night, rather one fills the crisp air with screams of horror. One the most noted scream queen of the industry graces the screen is none other than Linnea Quigley, in only her sixth horror film of her career, and whom recently did a homage scene to this film, in Caesar and Otto’s Deadly Xmas (2012). Sellier brought this controversial film to the theaters, and met with parent protesting its release, and incredibly his last horror film. Many involved in this first film of the series, later tried to distance themselves from it, due it attacking the innocence of the time of season the image on Santa Claus. The film met with disastrous results at the box office, protests from parent groups leading to the remove of the film, and the results of the graphic natural of murder scene, even though the scenes were similar to Tales From the Crypt (1972) and Christmas Evil (1980). In addition and very shockingly the backlash to this horror film, appeared nonexistent for A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) released one week later, about a child-killing monster named Freddy. The first film brings the tale of an orphan boy, a victim of murdered parents by a Santa, and brainwashed Mother Superior (Lilyan Chauvin) who later acquires a job, dons the infamous Santa suit and SNAPS! Billy (Robert Brian Wilson) runs about slaughter those he deems “Naughty” and the body count totals more than Santa’s reindeer – closer to 13. Now, that the horror ended, but the day of Christmas has not, time to continue into Lee Harry’s Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 (1987) with someone ready to defend Santa’s choices of who is naughty and nice out steps Ricky (Eric Freeman), avenging his brother Billy’s reign of terror by any means necessary. Pray for Mother Superior now portrayed by Jean Miller, for all the Hail Mary’s may not save her this time, then again, if one has not tore into enough gifts, then this film allows for much slasher.
If you have still have the in-laws over, and the time to sing carols begins to rear its ugly head, one might escape to view Silent Night, Deadly Night III: Better Watch Out (1989) torturous time that betters itself against the agony of syrupy Christmas songs. This time Monte Hellman serves as director of Rex Weiner and Arthur Gorson screenplay involving a mixture of zombie and Frankenstein, under the demented doctor Dr. Newbury (Richard Beymer), experiments. Ricky returns finding resurrection and link to methods with ESP while ready to take charge of the finishing the naughty list. Santa Claus Ricky (Bill Moseley – an added treat) focuses his attention on a blind woman named Laura (Samatha Scully), and no one stops Santa from his rounds. As one might think Initiation: Silent Night, Deadly Night 4 (1990) continues the Killer in a Santa Suit – sorry that’s incorrect, Brian Yuzna’s uses a page of the Halloween series, namely part 3, this time the killing involves a witchcraft ritual occurring on Christmas Eve. The general plot of the film involves a reporter, Kim who investigates a story without her boyfriend Hank (Reggie Bannister) while facing off with a villainous Ricky (Clint Howard). Time to finish of Christmas 2014 and the last film in the series, Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker (1991), a version of Halloween III, with a toymaker and special needing boy, making special toys that enjoy killing their owners, children, though some wish that Sid of Toy Story had those toys. A few trivia pieces that truly make the film interesting to watch first actor Clint Howard reprises his role of Ricky, and the toymaker name Joe Peto (think Pinocchio (1940) – Geppetto), played by Mickey Rooney who slammed the first film in this franchise and yet a here he is portraying a role.
The Exorcist (1973) inclusion in the list, simple two-fold first it is a fantastic film from William Friedkin and screenwriter William Peter Blatty, and secondly the film was originally released on December 26, 1973, one day after Christmas, a sacred day many Christians, hence a bit of blasphemy that occurs. As a follow-up to this film, The Legend of Hell House (1973) which introduction state December 20, thereby again not a directly a Happy Holiday film, but the date on the screen the inclusion makes it necessary to reestablish some true horror in to the list. However since the purpose of this article and list main focus centers on Christmas Horror, then Treevenge (2013) must make the list, a short 16-minute film available for free on Vimeo from director Jason Eisener, who assisted writer Rob Cotterill. This is a hilariously bizarre film, which will shock and awe the gore-hounds with sheer delights and make one wonder about the wrath of Mother Nature, as cut down Christmas Trees exact revenge on the sinister impolite citizens. The movie reference Lucio Fulci’s Zombie and Santa’s Slay (2005) the star on top of the tree and for good measure no one not even pets miss the bloodbath, even a baby’s face results in a smashing good time of blood and violence.
Dead End (2003) is the Christmas version of Wrong Turn (2003), involving Frank who is on his way to the in-laws, with his family and for the first time in 20-years decides to take a shortcut resulting in a gift of nightmarish delights. Directors and writers Jean-Baptiste Andrea and Fabrice Canepa present a mysterious thrilling tale and an equaling developing twisting plot to engage the audience, and starring Ray Wise, Lin Shaye as Frank and Laura, respectively acting as a married couple of many years. Sometimes Christmas presents gifts that have strings, and others harken into the past to capture ghosts plunging one in freezing madness.
Santa Claws (1996), also known as ‘Tis the Season, starring the scream queen Debbie Rochon as Raven Quinn, under the direction of John A. Russo brings a holiday horror film that actually delves deeper that the story presents itself. A young man finds is mother, who’s divorced having sex with man in a Santa Claus hat, and SNAPS – kills both, fast forward to the present, and believes he’s Santa and has the gift both murder and obsession for Raven. Raven believes her neighbor is a good man; however, Wayne (Grant Kramer) is a stalking Santa. However, when Raven slights him indirectly the admirations turns to jealous and dressed in Santa Claus suit the body count races along just like the remaining shopping days in December. This particular film finds itself on many horror Christmas lists, but that is from the talented combination of Rochon (with over 170 horror film credits excels the b-movie skills) and Russo (and man who penned the original Night of the Living Dead, and doesn’t mind keeping his hands bloody).
To All a Goodnight (1980) comes from the legendary and now deceased David Hess, his feature length film, and horror nonetheless, involving a Finishing School for Girls, with limited students as Christmas break started. A group of wealthy young men who have ulterior sexual motives round up a few female friends for some nocturnal activities, however a killer arrives at the same time dressing as Santa. This film has a fine twist planted within and one wonders if Kevin Williamson saw this film as wrote Scream (1996).
Wind Chill (2007) from director Gregory Jacobs a holiday horror thriller, of two bickering college students, a snobbish girl (Emily Blunt) and a meager guy (Ashton Holmes), have an accident on the way home for winter break, and encounter dozens of ghosts whose lives ended due to various situation, but mainly the evil behavior of a highway patrolman (Martin Donovan). This film contains an understanding of a supernatural force, which compels them repeat the incidents of before, throughout night, and the horrors constantly continue for each passing hour all on December 23.
New Years Evil (1981) for many horror fanatics, this film became a ritual to view on New Year’s Eve, a standard slasher film, from director Emmett Alston and writer Leonard Neunbauer about a killer whose plan involves killing someone when New Years strikes in each time zone. Leonard who passed away in 2011, had this film as his swan song in all categories, no reason ever arose to why he vanished from the pages of script, meanwhile Grant Cramer (Derek), a producer and actor continue in horror vein and in fact was also in another Christmas horror favorite Santa Claws (1996). Emmett’s film hinted towards to obsessed fans, though never travels too far in that direction, likely not wanted to distance the movie from popcorn munching slasher crowd.
Well I hope everyone enjoys the films listed in this article and note that the ghostly tales of a Christmas Carol were not include, since it clearly remains apart from the horror realm and that Scrooge turns to the good side, and away from evil. This creation took hours to develop, and give solid thought of the films included, so, as the hectic season of hassling shopping, pushy coughing sneezing crowds, slippery snow, and troublesome in-laws mounts around you, grab some time with a Christmas theme horror film, release some rage and relax as someone streams the bowels of Holly.
