5 Christmas Horror Movies – From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

Published

on

By

It’s Christmas time, and Krampus is coming to town to scare everyone who hasn’t gotten into the holiday spirit. And while the idea of mixing comfort and joy with jolts and screams might seem unusual, there’s a proud tradition of Yuletide scares.

So if your idea of a holiday hero is Jack Skellington rather than George Bailey, here’s a list of five entertaining horror movies that will bring an extra chill to your December. (For a more complete list of scary, funny, exciting, sad, and pretty much every other kind of holiday movie, check out my book Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas.)

In this fiendishly funny and frightening Finnish import, an excavation team makes a mysterious discovery while a young boy researches Santa Claus, only to discover that the old man is a fearsome legend who exists to punish naughty children. As strange events begin occurring around town, the boy fears that the diggers have uncovered Santa’s resting place, and that the man in the red suit plans to exact a hideous revenge.

Christmas Evil (1980) 75% (aka You Better Watch Out)

Forget every other film you’ve ever seen about a serial killer who gets turned into a homicidal snowman: this one’s the real deal. Stemming from a genuinely ludicrous concept, this story about a prisoner whose DNA mixes with experimental acid in the Snowman Capitol of America finds the humorous in the horrific, and vice versa. Keep an eye out for a pre–American Pie Shannon Elizabeth, who turns up to get assaulted by the titular monster. (Not to be confused with the Michael Keaton movie of the same name – that one’s arguably even creepier.)

Quibi’s Demise Spurs Hand-Wringing for TV Partners

Published

When CBS News launched a new version of its popular “60 Minutes” for Quibi earlier this year, it was seen as a much-needed way to extend a venerable TV brand into the media venues younger viewers covet. The six-minute “60 in 6” featured an array of new correspondents and tackled QAnon, race relations and more.

Now CBS faces the prospect of keeping the show going with another partner or under its own steam.

The demise of Quibi, the short-form video service led by Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman, will cause complications for a wide range of TV partners who supplied new and often innovative programming to the streaming upstart, which promised to deliver top-quality entertainment in episodes that would last ten minutes or less. NBC News, the BBC,  Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, Kevin Hart, Queen Latifah and Chrissy Teigen were among the popular actors and media entities that latched on to the venture.

Several programming partners were unable to provide immediate comment on what Quibi’s end meant for their work, including Blumhouse, which has produced horror series for Quibi. A spokesman for “60 Minutes” was not able to make executives available for comment, but two people familiar with the show’s Quibi offshoot say they have seen indications from top producers that their efforts are valued and that CBS News intends to find a way to keep the program going.  “Some of the correspondents who were hired for this ’60 in 6’ show may one day work on the Sunday show,” Bill Owens, the executive producer of  “60 Minutes,” told Variety in March.  Approximately 30 people staff “60 in 6.”

NBC News did not offer immediate comment on what might happen to those productions after Quibi shuts down. A BBC spokesman was also not able to offer immediate comment.

Others expressed confusion. One studio, which is currently producing multiple series with Quibi, has heard nothing from the company, according to a person familiar with the matter, and executives remain unclear on the future of its shows, at least one of which was picked up for a second season.

Some may look to craft other alliances. CBS Studios intends to shop the Liam Hemsworth and Christoph Waltz high-proflie action series “Most Dangerous Game,” to other venues. Quibi had renewed it for a second season prior to folding.

Meanwhile, Matt Rogers, host of Quibi’s “Gayme Show,” posted a series of tweets noting he originally pitched the show to Netflix,  and said that he’s “enthusiastic about taking (‘Gayme Show’) elsewhere.” In  each episode of the series, two contestants who identify as straight vie with a celebrity “life partner” while squaring off against a series of challenges.   Quibi had previously renewed “Gayme Show” for a second season but Rogers’ comments suggest that  the series has run out of time in Quibi’s very short corporate cycle.

However, one viewer didn’t seem to believe Clare and called out the hairstylist from Sacramento, Calif.

“My husband took @clarecrawley to senior prom, @clarecrawley you went to prom,” the follower wrote on Instagram alongside footage from the episode and a series of hashtags that included #Senior ball and #1999. “Note: she went to all-girls school he went to a all-boys school call it want you want, Senior Ball or Senior Prom, it took place in the spring.”

The social media user, who appears to have since privatized her account and deleted the post, also published photos of what appeared to be the 39-year-old reality star and her date during their high school days.
