Usually, preparation for Christmas takes all our free time, and we do not have time to find a suitable film. Fortunately, you can take advantage of our TOP list of films that play up Christmas and New Year in a new style. Here are the top titles that have received our seal of approval.
It is an evil spirit who joins Santa Claus on Christmas night to kidnap naughty children. He beats them up or takes them to his cave to eat. Krampus is the demon prototype, so it has horns and other elements inherent in otherworldly entities. According to the plot of the same name film, a dysfunctional family gets together to celebrate the holiday, which makes the Christmas spirit disappear. Krampus doesn’t like this, so he attacks all family members.
The film is about Emily Blunt, a college student in Pennsylvania. She is going to celebrate Christmas with her family in Wilmington, Delaware. On the trip, she is joined by a male student heading to Wilmington too. Travelling in a Christmas mood is accompanied by mysterious events and creepy figures that cannot be explained.
7.Better Watch Out
The title of the film speaks for itself. The film premiered in 2016 and is still at the top of the list of the scariest Christmas movies. 17-year-old Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) is babysitting 12-year-old Levi (Luke Lerner), who tries to seduce her in various ways. After several unsuccessful attempts, he acts like a psychopath trying to kill his babysitter. Better Watch Out is full of unexpected moments, and despite the spooky storyline, it’s great for watching with friends.
At first glance, this film cannot be called a horror. The story begins with Peter Peltzer (Zack Galligan) acquiring a mysterious creature called a Mogwai. This gift had specific instructions, so Mogwai should not come into contact with water, be exposed to sunlight, and eat after midnight. As with most such films, the rules are broken from time to time, which leads to bad consequences.
A year after his father’s death, Charlie (Joseph Cross) is grieving and bored. One winter day, he built a snowman in honour of his father and began to play the accordion that he received as a dying gift. At this moment, the spirit of the dead father returns to earth and possesses the snowman! Sounds pretty scary, right? But it’s actually a funny comedy named after a horror movie from 1997.
6.Anna and the Apocalypse
This Christmas movie combines elements of comedy, horror, and musical. Anna and the Apocalypse film has a lot in common with the cult classic Shaun of the Dead except for a large number of songs that complement the main plot. The film became so popular that it was nominated for several British Academic Scotland Awards.
It’s Christmas Eve, and all family members are preparing for the main holiday of the year. To get home as soon as possible, Frank (Ray Wise) decides to take a shortcut through another area. Oh, at this moment real mysticism and horror begin. Panic-stricken, he doesn’t know how to get back on the right route. However, this is not the scariest part because he will face ghosts and all kinds of bad, scary things.
8.Silent Night, Deadly Night
The film, called “Silent Night, Deadly Night”, is about a psychopath who kills people dressed as Santa. The story of the film follows the events of 1971 when Billy Chapman (Jonathan Best) witnessed the murder of his parents by people in Santa Claus costumes. The boy spent the next 13 years in an orphanage and then even tried to live a normal life. Events unfold in such a way that a man begins to kill people, and these elements have caused controversy among the parents because the kind Santa Claus is shown as a terrible monster.
9.The Nightmare Before Christmas
Filmed by Tim Burton, this is one of the few animated films that is great for both: Christmas and Halloween. Tired of a boring life, Jack Skellington discovers a cosy Christmas town and becomes obsessed with this holiday. The film is devoid of creepy episodes, so it is great for watching with children.
Each of these films deserves your attention. Why don’t you watch them all on Christmas break, eh?
