Top 10 Tuesday: Holiday Horrors

What’s Top 10 Tuesday? It’s a new Top 10 List every Tuesday!

With Halloween fast approaching and September’s Palm Beach County Grindhouse Series screening of Trick ‘r Treat,  this Tuesday I celebrated the various Holiday themed Horror movies. And yes, there’s more than just Christmas and Halloween!

Honorable Mention, Leprechaun (1993)
St. Patrick’s Day

It’s a bit of a stretch  but without this film that’s heavy on Irish folklore we wouldn’t have Leprechaun in the Hood.

 

10. ThanksKilling (2009)
Thanksgiving

While Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving from the Grindhouse Trailers may never get made, we’ll always have ThanksKilling. A homicidal turkey (puppet) kills college students during Thanksgiving break. It may not be a good movie but it’s funny as hell.

9. New Year’s Evil (1980)
New Year’s Eve

This slasher film features a pretty unique story with a radio show getting calls from a killer every hour when the different time zone’s hit Midnight.

8. Mother’s Day (1980)
Mother’s Day

It may not actually take place on Mother’s Day but it still works quite well. Two brother’s torture and kidnap women to please their insane mother. One of the better non-Toxic Avenger Troma films.

7. Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)
Christmas

Finnish-made Christmas movie about a accidentally finding the secret tomb of Santa Claus. After reindeer are slaughtered and Children start to go missing, it’s believed that a monstrous Santa Claus is to blame.key to why reindeer are being slaughtered and children are disappearing.

6. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)
Halloween

Sure it may be controversial that the movie I include from the Halloween Series doesn’t have Michael Myers… but it’s also my favorite Halloween and Holiday-related movie of all time. Season of the Witch is an  insane but fun story about a company using their Halloween masks to kill off Children.

5. My Bloody Valentine (1981)
Valentine’s Day

By far the best Holiday Horror that’s not Christmas or Halloween-related, featuring “Harry Warden” in a spooky miner costume killing off people trying to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

4. Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)
Christmas

Silent Night, Deadly Night may not be the best Holiday Horror or even that great of a movie but i’ll be damned if it’s not one of the most fun. Features tons of creative kills and a very believable psychopath played by Robert Brian Wilson.

3. Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
Halloween

A perfect anthology of Halloween-related horror stories all brought together by a cute little Pumpkin demon. Trick ‘r Treat was actually finished in 2007 but wasn’t released until 2009 due to problems with distribution. We’re still waiting for a Trick ‘r Treat 2…

2. Gremlins (1984)
Christmas

While this may be the most family-friendly film on the list, Gremlins still managed to scare a lot of kids in it’s day. The story of a boy receiving a strange pet for Christmas which then leads to almost entirely destroying a city. Gremlins 3 is expected to be released in 2018.

1. Black Christmas (1974)
Christmas

Black Christmas is not only a great Holiday Horror movie it’s also one of the earliest in the slasher genre. Black Christmas is one of the first that manages to keep the killer a secret for the entire film. Directed by Bob Clark who 5 years later went on to direct one of the most well-known Christmas movies of all time, A Christmas Story.

I thought this list would be a lot easier to do but I didn’t realize how many Holiday-related Horror movies are some of my favorites. It’d be nice to see some newer Holiday Horrors not related to Halloween or Christmas though. Don’t forget on September 22nd I kick off Halloween early with a screening of Trick ‘r Treat! See you next Tuesday for an all-new Top 10 List!
