Christmas Horror: An Ongoing List

I love horror movies! 

It's actually my all time favorite genre of movies!

A few years ago Tim and I threw a Scary Christmas Horror Holiday Movie Night. It was great fun. I'm completely desensitized to any of the scares in horror movies but I still love horror movies and it was a lot of fun living vicariously through my friends getting scared watching some of the films we picked. Perhaps one day we will throw another Scary Christmas Horror Holiday Movie Night. Perhaps, we might even make it an annual treat. But for now, after watching Krampus last weekend (see the post here) it made me want to re-write and update my list of Christmas horror movies which I'm sharing with all of you. If you are into really bad movies here is the list for you! There are also some not so bad movies and even some good and really good movies on the list too... but probably more bad ones than good ones. I haven't got anywhere near watching all of these movies myself (as you can see I've rated the ones I've seen which is just a very tiny percent of all the movies on this list). In any case, for those such inclined, happy holidays full of gore, scares, and Christmas cheer!

  1. Oh wow, what a list! Horror movies used to REALLY freak me out, so i haven't seen most. But I'm considering giving them another whirl. This is a good go-to list! XO

    1. I hope this list helps :D Happy viewing!!! :D :D :D

  2. Wowzers I love horror too but had no clue there where this many xmas horror films. Im a bit burned out on horror as i watched it non stop all september and october. For some reason I associate christmas with the lord of the rings movies and now the hobbit films and the wizard of oz and its always the season for Star Trek in my world,

    Ps-I also consider dr who xmas viewing fair

    1. LOL. I can see why September and October are big on horror for you. I haven't done any big horror marathons in while myself though I do usually like to read horror books in December. I think it's because of the weather and also, it's a nice contrast to all the tinsel and good cheer! LOL I'm looking forward to getting some Christmas horror marathoning going though! I have lots of discs from Netflix on the way!

      Thanks for the Dr. Who tip. I have not even started watching that yet but it's been on my watch instant list for ages. It might be just the time to start it! :D

  3. WOW that's a big list! I enjoy watching horror films but obviously need to watch a bunch from your list!!

    1. LOL! It's a huge list for sure! There's even one on the list from Australia! :D I have some watching to do myself! I hope you get to enjoy some Holiday horror. :)
