Loosely inspired by a months-old Twitter exchange with @veshecco 💀 🔪🎄My husband & I have fondness for this odd little genre, & we watch one film/TV episode each year while we set up Santa. This may be the most personal glimpse into my marriage I could provide 😆 These are the top ones we've enjoyed 🎶it's the most wonderful time of the year🎶
  1. Santa's Slay
    Static
    The oldest son from Big Love & Claire from Lost have to battle evil Santa (he used to be a murderous demon but was sentenced to deliver presents for a 1000 years due to some nonsense...& the 1000 years are now up!)
  2. Gremlins
    Static
    If you don't know this film, then clearly you aren't yet fully traumatized by the idea of a real person shimmying down a chimney Santa-style. Also, cute singing critters turn into violent boogers when fed after midnight
  3. Silent Night Deadly Night
    Static
    Kid wth traumatic childhood (guy dressed as Santa kills his folks in botched robbery, plus horrible nuns in orphanage) goes on a murder spree after being triggered by combo of Santa exposure & Catholic guilt, particularly regarding lust
  4. Black Christmas
    Static
    A few girls remain in their sorority house at beginning of holiday break. Mysterious killer in the house starts picking them off 1 by 1. Fun fact: Same director as A Christmas Story
  5. Black Christmas (remake)
    Static
    Lacey Chabert! But (surprise, surprise), as is the case with all horror remakes, it's no where near as good as the original
  6. American Horror Story: Asylum - "Unholy Night" (Ep 2)
    Static
    Ian McShane as Murder Santa! It's my fave one-off episode from the series. Not for the faint of heart
  7. Christmas Evil
    Static
    Formerly titled You Better Watch Out. Kid sees his mama being intimate with Santa Claus & it sets a screw loose. Your typical deranged dude getting violence mixed up with his sexual awaking. He grows up trying to become the real Santa, murdering grown ups & leaving toys for kids. His brother (Dale from The Walking Dead) realizes something isn't right. Hilarious ending
  8. Tales from the Crypt - "And All Through the House" (Sea 1, Ep 2)
    Static
    Brand & Mikey's mom murders her husband on Christmas. Unfortunately for her, an escaped mental patient dressed as Santa knows she's been bad
  9. Krampus
    Static
    There are a lot of films with this title, but I mean the one released last year with Adam Scott & Toni Colette. About a demon Santa that need to be defeated. This one's on tap for this year's viewing
