12 Bloody Days of Christmas: Day 6 ‘Creepy Christmas Movies’

24 hours of A Christmas Story goes with Christmas just as much as sugar cookies and baked ham. It’s a tradition. Yesterday, I took a look at horror’s favorite classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. But today, I’m here to talk about traditional tales. Familiar, heartfelt movies that make us laugh, cry and fall deep into the Christmas spirit. But what happens when your favorite Christmas stories are twisted in such a way that they become horrifying; a true vision of terror. As I soon discovered, many of these films can easily be twisted into a scary movie. On the sixth day of Christmas, Bloody-Disgusting gave to me – “Creepy Christmas Movies”.

Day 6: Creepy Christmas Movies
When I was figuring out today’s article, I came across a bunch of horror movie trailers: Black Christmas, Silent Night Deadly Night, Jack Frost- Christmas horror movies gone awry. But then I soon discovered that there were dozens of mock Christmas movie trailers out there. It’s true- there are different takes on different movies, edited in such a way to make us believe that they aren’t homespun family tales, but instead terrifying examples of Christmas cheer. I watched my fair share, but below, I’m sharing my favorites- the ones that made me laugh, the ones that could truly pass for an actual trailer, the ones that took childhood memories and crushed them.

A CHRISTMAS GORY

What if there was something else besides that leg lamp in the FRAGILE box?

SAW MEETS HOME ALONE

Comparing Jigsaw to that Culken kid seems appropriate.

ONE MAGIC CHRISTMAS

Yeah, I’d poke fun at the angel in the creepy trench coat too.

THE SILENCE OF THE WHO’S

Someone was bound to bring the Grinch into this mix.

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN

And I think he’s packing more than some presents and candy canes.

NATIONAL LAMPOON DEMON

There’s only so much you can take during the holidays.

CHRISTMAS WITH THE KRANKS

Horrible holiday movies deserve to be transformed into horror. Makes for good entertainment.
