christmas themed horror

Looking for a fun Christmas themed horror movie? Look no further than the 2003 film "Dead End," about a family who takes a shortcut on the way to their grandmother's house for Christmas. Ray Wise and Lin Shaye star as Frank and Laura Harrington, a couple who get lost with their family on a seemingly endless and deserted country road. Mix in a mysterious Lady in White, a terrifying black hearse and a panic stricken family and this will be sure to be one Christmas movie you'll never forget. This little gem is available for your viewing pleasure on Netflix Instant Watch.

When most of us think about Christmas, it's only natural that we think of nazi experiments involving elves, am I right? That's right, today we are taking a look back at the 1989 Christmas classic, "Elves." Now try to follow me with this plot: Troubled teen Kirsten and her friends hold a seance ritual in the woods and awaken an elf. Not elves as the movie title suggests. Just. One. Elf.

Unconventional Christmas films have always been a favorite of mine, whether it's a film about a murderous snowman or an unhappy gingerbread man, I'm usually on board for spicing up the dullness of Santa and snow. While “The Christmas Tale” does feature a Santa, it takes place in a warm palm tree laden town in Spain. But the focus here is not on Christmas, it's on how to approach someone who has put themselves on the naughty list.

I'm not so sure I'm prepared to say this Christmas themed horror film "12-24" looks "good", but the people behind it who emailed me the link the other day must have known that Yuletide themed horror films are one of my guilty pleasures.

It's Christmas Eve, and a group of disparate characters are heading home for the night when the dead begin to rise and seek human flesh. Who will survive the onslaught?
