The Scariest Moments in Non-Horror Christmas Movies!



Sometimes family films are scarier than horror films.

Who could ever forget the first appearance of Old Man Marley in Home Alone? Wielding a shovel, the bearded Marley was something of a local legend in town, believed to be the serial killer known as the “South Bend Shovel Slayer” – he allegedly killed his victims with a shovel, and then dissolved their bodies in salt. Of course, Marley ends up being a lonely old man with a tragic story, turning from suspected villain into unlikely hero in the final act. But goddamn is he scary in that scene where he catches Kevin looking at him through the window. Chills. Total Chills.

Fun side note: late actor Roberts “Old Man Marley” Blossom portrayed real-life, skin-wearing serial killer Ed Gein in Deranged, released sixteen years prior to Home Alone!

We’re here today to talk about those scary moments in otherwise not-intended-to-be-scary Christmas films, and we recently reached out to the Bloody Disgusting readers over on Twitter to help us compile the ultimate list.
