I know most of you might think that the original Black Christmas is the best Christmas-themed horror movie ever, but I’m here to tell you that you’re right. Now aside from my agreement on that topic, another Christmas-themed horror movie that you need to see is Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker! I know you probably need convincing, so watch this clip below and I’ll tell you 5 things that I personally learned from this monumental scene in horror movie history:
Ok, here we go:
Always make sure to say something funny like “It’s to die for.” right before you knowingly send someone to their inevitable death.
He should have crashed at least 10 times considering his eyes rarely made contact with the road at any point in this clip.
Larry The Larvae is quite persistent.
Larry The Larvae must also be a vampire since no blood really appears when he pops the guy’s eyeball out.
It’s unfortunate that Mickey Rooney isn’t in this scene.
Well, that was fun I guess. Go watch this gem of a Christmas horror movie on Shudder now!
Oh no! It’s Grandpa from Silent Night, Deadly Night! This staring contest will be challenging because Grandpa just literally stares ahead most of the time anyway……unless of course he’s talking and scaring the shit out of his grandson, Billy. Focus! Stare into Grandpa’s beady little eyes. Don’t let the smell of Bengay that’s permeating off of his body distract you. Or the urine smell from his adult diapers. I said focus, dammit! Wait – what’s this??? Billy’s brother Ricky just ran behind you and yelled “Garbage Day!” and Grandpa looked away! You win! But Ricky loses because Grandpa is now beating him with his cane.
Ho Ho Ho! It’s time to spread that holiday horror cheer and put a little something in your stocking (that sounded somewhat dirty) to make you smile! And what is Santa going into his sack (keeps getting worse) for? Well it’s the 2008 British horror movie, The Children! It takes place during Christmas, so just go with it.
To be honest, The Children is a heavily underrated Christmas-themed horror movie. It’s creepy, well acted, well shot, and has some stomach-turning violence and gore (some against kids, so be warned). If you haven’t seen it, seek it out and enjoy it over a big glass of egg nog or some kind of ‘high alcohol content’ beverage. Below is a clip to get your holiday juices flowing. And speaking of flowing, the aftermath of this scene is pretty gnarly. ‘Slay’ bells ring, are you listening……
Ok, Thanksgiving is over. Now bring on Christmas so we can all tell our loved ones how much they’ve disappointed us throughout the year. Oh no, wait – that’s Festivus. But Christmas, yes! Cookies and egg nog and sappy trees. Doesn’t get much better than that! Unless we’re talking about the classic Christmas song ‘The Warm Side Of The Door‘. What – you’ve never heard of it? Shut the warm side of the front door!! Ok, it’s time to school you then.
See – there’s this movie called Silent Night, Deadly Night about a guy named Billy that dresses up like Santa Claus and kills people and whatnot. But before Billy goes full loco, there’s a sweet little compilation scene of Billy working at the department store with the song ‘The Warm Side Of The Door‘ playing! It’s a ridiculously awesome moment in the movie, and it catapulted the songwriter (Morgan Ames) to great heights in the music industry! Actually it didn’t, but it’s a good song. So enjoy it below and break it out during your holiday family or work function this year. Apologies that I don’t have the actual scene from the movie with the song. Maybe if you ask Santa for it for Christmas, you’ll get lucky.
What says Christmas more than a 12-year-old boy that has a crush on his 17-year-old babysitter? Actually, that has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas – but in the new holiday horror movie Better Watch Out, it sure does!
You better watch out, you better not cry……you better not pout because there’s a really good Christmas horror movie that you need to watch this year! I know, I know – it’s Halloween season. But I had the pleasure of finally sitting down and watching Craig Anderson’s Red Christmas and it indeed got me into the Christmas horror movie spirit!
Snow is falling outside. Carolers are caroling in the streets. And people are inside nestled around the fireplace while watching the 1997 horror (and I use that term loosely) movie Jack Frost. A huge guilty pleasure of mine that has earned it’s place atop my ‘Required Viewing’ list for Chirstmas, Jack Frost is full of ridiculous moments and even more ridiculous puns. So let’s treat ol’ Jack like a stand-up comic and have him deliver us his ‘Bad Pun Of The Week’!
Well it took a while to get to it, but boy did Jack Frost deliver that pun! See, if you’re slow – he wanted a cigarette. And the guy had an axe. So when Jack shoved the axe down the guy’s throat (which didn’t quite look right if you think of the length of the handle and how it stuck in the guy’s mouth), he used the axe part in his pun when he talked about asking for a cigarette! Hilarity. If you’d like to watch that scene again in glorious Blu-ray quality, then go and purchase the newly released Blu-ray copy HERE.
It’s Christmastime! Carolers are caroling. The mistletoe is being hung. And a topless women is getting thrown into a wood chipper in broad daylight by a psychotic Santa Claus.
Welcome to Monday Bloody Monday, and since it’s the holiday season it feels only right to spotlight a Christmas-themed horror movie. In 2012, Silent Night was released and was actually a decent little throwback to Silent Night, Deadly Night. And just like in the latter, Santa is out to punish the naughty. In this case, the naughty is a topless girl who is about to meet her grisly demise at the merciless hands of a wood chipper. Grab some egg nog and click the link below:
With Christmas fast approaching, I’ve started gathering up my favorite horror movies to watch around this time of the year. Black Christmas? Check! Silent Night, Deadly Night? Check! Jack Frost 2: Revenge Of The Mutant Killer Snowmen? Double check! But with my old age comes forgetfulness, and I always seem to not remember that the 2007 movie P2 is a Christmas horror movie and might deserve to be in my rotation.
P2 is a delightful tale about a woman named Angela (Rachel Nichols) who is stalked in her parking garage at work by a security guard named Thomas (Wes Bentley). Fun fact: Wes Bentley can be seen in the last few seasons of American Horror Story! So anyway, in the movie it all takes place on Christmas Eve night which is a good indication that this is a Christmas horror movie. Oh – and Elvis’ ‘Blue Christmas‘ makes an appearance during a stalking scene and that’s a bonus for me because I love that song.
And so the stalking goes on. And Angela runs around in a low-cut wet shirt, with her two main large assets bouncing around like jingle bells. Bouncing and bouncing and bouncing……..I’m sorry – what was I talking about? Oh yeah – the stalking continues and it obviously comes to a predictable cliched climax. But before we can climax, we need to have more bloody fun! So if you haven’t seen P2 and are deciding whether or not to give it a whirl, check out the clip below with one of the best ‘body smashing with a car’ kills ever. Merry Christmas, everybody!
