Another Scary Christmas Film List — This Time from the Folks at Rotten Tomatoes
As the Christmas countdown continues, “Ho-Ho-Horror! 10 Scary Christmas Movies” is a rather eccentric offering by Michael Adams from the popular movie review site Rotten Tomatoes. Because not all of these are precisely horror, but are possibly just scary due to context, or even, like SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS, frightening mainly because they were even made. As for unnerving context, perennial favorite IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE makes #4 on the list insofar as it starts with a “banker-instigated financial meltdown” and, to continue to quote from the site, “[t]hat it ends with a popular bail-out of the bank (well, Building And Loan) is another reason this one won’t be remade anytime soon.”
Be that as it may, there are others that fit more easily into standard horror, including some that were also cited on HALLOWEEN FOREVERMORE’s “Top Five” list on December 3. So view at your own risk by pressing here.
