Top Ten: Holiday Horror Movies

A couple years ago, Sarofsky did a fun little event for the team... A real-life Clue, murder mystery masquerade ball cocktail party. At said event, an unlikely couple was formed: Gertrude and Mortimer... Better known as Tnaya and James.

Since then, Tnaya and James have been quite the duo... Still going strong as co-workers after all these years. This week, they decided to collaborate on a top ten list... Top Ten: Holiday Horror Movies. Read on!

10. Silent Night Bloody Night (1972)
The mansion. The madness. The maniac. No escape.
A man inherits a mansion that was once a mental home. Hijinks ensue.

9. Silent Night Deadly Night (1984)
You’ve made it through Halloween, now try to survive Christmas.
After his parents are murdered, a tormented teenager goes on a murderous rampage dressed as Santa.

8. Dead End (2003)
Read the signs.
Lyn Shaye and Ray Wise are fantastic in this story about a family trip to the in-laws on Christmas eve gone horribly wrong.

7. P2 (2007)
A new level of fear.
Being trapped in a parking garage on Christmas Eve might be the only thing scarier than your family’s holiday party.

6. Sint (2010)
December 5th will never be the same again.
Also known as Saint, this over the top holiday slasher from the Netherlands is a Christmas gem. Don’t let subtitles scare you off, you can find it dubbed in English!

5. Terror Train (1980)
All Aboard…If You Dare!
A classic slasher film with the greatest scream queen of them all, Jamie Lee Curtis. This dizzying film is the perfect companion for a New Year’s Evil.

4. Jack Frost (1997)
He’s chillin'… And killin'.
Truly the best killer snowman out there. With jaw dropping snowman effects, you’ll be terrified to think what Christmas lights and icicles can do.

3. Krampus (2015)
You'd better watch out.
A visually stimulating wonderland of scares, laughs and murder. The best adaptation of the German folklore nightmare to date, this will teach kids to stop whining for the whole month of December.

2. Black Christmas (1974)
If this movie doesn’t make your skin crawl…It’s on TOO TIGHT.
Pre-dating Halloween by over three years, this is a masterpiece that must be watched. Fun fact: the same director of this did the legendary film, A Christmas Story. Make it a double feature and check out the 2006 remake!

1. Gremlins (1984)
Cute. Clever. Mischievous. Intelligent. Dangerous.
The Christmas horror film of them all, Gremlins is the perfect balance of scares and fun. Enjoy again and again every year.
