For many folks, the holidays invoke a warm and fuzzy feeling, along with the need to watch light-hearted movies centered around the magical holiday season. For others, not so much. Some people don’t like the fluff, or at the very least, need a break from all the “ho, ho, ho” and good cheer. And there are movies for these people. While I’m not saying these are Oscar-worthy films, if you like weird horror-inspired or edgy Christmas movies that are a little more hardcore than Rudolph, these are some Christmas horror movies for the creepy child inside of you who wants it to be Halloween all year round.
In most of these movies, Santa is no longer the warm, jolly, plump and loveable bowl full of jelly. There are evil murderer Santas, and even alcoholic, dirty, and nymphomaniac Santas. And this particular Jack Frost isn't the one from the sweet Michael Keaton movie. No, this snowman is out for blood and is pretty gruesome. And the smiley gingerbread man you know and love is now a stone cold killer. Grab some spiked eggnog, and make sure the kiddos are tucked into bed tight before you cozy up to any of these spooky horror holiday movies. Otherwise, they may be having nightmares for years to come, and you'll definitely have to tell them the truth about Santa Claus then so they won't think he's lurking in the closet with a hatchet.
