Earlier this week we took a look at holiday ghost stories, and while it may be hard to believe, Christmas has given us some incredible horror movies. A lot of the Holiday themed horror movies are awful and "straight to DVD" but we have had a few that truly have something to offer.

Here are the top 4 horror christmas movies!

4. Black Christmas (1974)

This horror movie is very dark, and has a huge cult following. There are multiple sequels and remakes. It has a 7.2 on IMDb. It isn't fun, but is truly horrifying if you are a paranoid person.

During their Christmas break, a group of sorority girls are stalked by a stranger.

 

3. Better Watch Out (2016)

While not super focused on the holidays, it still plays a role. This movies is an absolute sleeper. I found it by mistake, and honestly had my mind blown with how many twist, turns, and solid acting there was. It's no master peace, but it is a wild, and disturbing ride. It has a 6.5 on IMDb

On a quiet suburban street, a babysitter must defend a twelve-year-old boy from intruders, only to discover it's far from a normal home invasion.

2. Gremlins (1984)

A drastic turn from the disturbing other two. It is a fun, light hearted Christmas horror movie for the whole family. I use horror lightly here, but this movie was a great first step for me as a kid into scary movies. It has a a 7.3 on IMDb

A boy inadvertently breaks three important rules concerning his new pet and unleashes a horde of malevolently mischievous monsters on a small town.

1. Krampus (2015)

I love this movie, and wish more people did as well. It's fun, scary, and truly shows the worst side of Christmas! It has a 6.2 on IMDb.

A boy who has a bad Christmas accidentally summons a festive demon to his family home.
