Hello everyone and welcome to day 10 of Blogmas! I love a good horror film and thankfully, there are a lot of amazing holiday horror films. Today, I’m going to share my favourites with you.
Disclaimer: I am covering all the holidays in this blog post. I feel if I just mention Christmas horror films in this post, it will be too short. I hope that’s okay!
The Wicker Man – 1973
The Wicker Man is about a policeman who heads to an island in search of a missing girl. It’s a beautiful film that’s eerily creepy and definitely worth a watch. However, I am obviously talking about the original film and not *that* remake starring Nicholas Cage. I do have to admit the bee scene is quite funny though.
Black Christmas – 1974
I adore Black Christmas. Many people have said this is the original slasher alongside Texas Chainsaw Massacre and it’s brilliant. Mysterious, frightening and tense with some brilliant lines, it’s a definite recommendation for you all. The story shows a group of sorority sisters in their sorority house who receive threatening phone calls from an unknown person. They are then stalked and murdered by the same unknown person.
Halloween – 1978
It wouldn’t be a holiday horror film without mentioning Halloween. I think everyone and anyone knows about this film. It’s delightfully scary with some good shots and it’s a perfect film to watch on Halloween night. It tells the story of Michael Myers who has escaped from a sanitarium after 15 years and begins to hunt babysitters.
Trick ‘r Treat – 2007
Trick ‘r Treat is an anthology horror film set on Halloween night. It has 4 Halloween stories with a common element in them, a child called Sam who is a trick-or-treater wearing PJs with a burlap sack over his head. He makes an appearance in each of the stories whenever a character breaks Halloween traditions. It’s quite dark in places and I love it.
Krampus – 2015
Krampus is a really funny and spooky horror film. It has an absolutely brilliant cast and I can’t wait to sit down and watch it this year. Frustrated by the arguments between members of his family, Max loses interest in Christmas, awakening Krampus, a demon who will punish his entire family.
And there you go! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and I shall see you tomorrow!
