For those who are sick with Christmas being about big-budget movies and spending time with the family watching the same corny stuff, the low-budget Christmas horror genre was invented. These are the finest of its pickings.
Don’t Open Till Christmas
A lot of the Christmas horror films are about Santa running wild with a knife. This one is about a killer who is out to get anyone with a Santa suit.
Not much of a horror film anymore, but it’s still dangerous to get Gizmo wet.
Nixon and Hogan Smoke Christmas
A movie about Santa turning into a zombie after smoking the wrong batch of weed.
A story about a woman who just wants to get home and spend Christmas with her kids, but a lovesick security guard has a different plan.
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
A great twist on the Santa tale, as an excavation group uncovers a huge burial mound with one occupant still alive, with Santa turning out to be an immortal, supernatural being hellbent on punishing wicked kids.
Santa, actually the spawn of Satan in this film, goes on a killing spree after being forced to deliver presents for 1000 years.
Silent Night, Bloody Night
Inheriting a mansion sounds like fun right? Not when it used to be an asylum, and the mansion isn’t empty as it might seem to be.
A Dutch film taking on another twist of a killer Santa. This time, it’s a ghost who murders people whenever the holiday coincides with a full moon.
Pretty much about kids going crazy, violent crazy on the adults during Christmas in a small town.
