If you haven't noticed, everytime you take down your Christmas decorations, it seems like a week's gone by and here you are putting them back up.

The same holds true for Christmas horror movies. These days, filmmakers seem to try and out do each other for the brightest holiday scare. Ever since the cult success of Silent Night, Deadly Night Christmas doesn't seem to be as sacred anymore.

Sometimes the Christmas horror season works and sometimes it hits you like a rock's inside a snowball that just hit your head. It's just that painful.


BETTER WATCH OUT (2016)


If you're looking for something suspenseful, then this is your go to holiday horror movie. You'll definitely be glued to your seat for this independent film from Australia.

Luke's (Levi Miller) parents have gone out for the night and his babysitter, Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) is babysitting him one last time before she leaves for college in a few days.

With Luke's hormones out of control, he tries to seduce her anyway that he can and while she knows what his intentions are, she can't seem to fend him off.

When a pizza arrives that they didn't order and a few other things go haywire, the two are trapped in the Lerner's luxurious home along with Luke's uninvited friend, Garrett and Ashley's boyfriend, Ricky (Aleks Mikic).

Someone has been very naughty this Christmas and may not live to celebrate next year.


RED CHRISTMAS (2016)



"In horror," Dee Wallace told me, "there are two things that shouldn't be messed with. Murdering children and Christmas."

I understand those two rules, but in Red Christmas, Wallace plays Diane, an American who has lived and raised a family in Australia and is grateful that this year the whole family will be together one last time before she sells the family home.

With the family assembled and ready to open their gifts, there's a knock at the door and they invite hooded and bandaged Cletus (Sam Campbell) in. Cletus is on a quest to meet his mother and the family is ill at ease with him there.

Once they get rid of him, family members start to die off pretty rapidly and Diane's "perfect family" Christmas ends in blood.


Mrs. Claus (2018)


Here's a movie that you should try to avoid at any cost.

About a decade ago, Alexandra Werner (Ronni Lea) was pledging a sorority and through her humiliation, made it. At the sorority's annual Christmas party, she's humiliated once again by Amber (Kaylee Williams). Later that night, Amber is killed by Alexandra, who then commits suicide.

Here it is ten years later, and Amber's younger sister, Danielle (Hailey Strader) is pledging the same sorority and confronts the ghosts of her past.

Well, it's time for the annual Christmas party again and guess what happens?

You'd be right if you thought the guys and gals at the party would be slaughtered, but first, Alexandra's mother (Helene Udy) drops by to let Danielle know that she's going to get her just deserts since her sister killed Alexandra.

And Mrs. Werner comes into town just as the campus whore, Sophie (Daiane Azura) disappears.

The only (and I mean only) saving grace is Heather Bounds as Kayla. She's great as the Martha Stewart wanna be and her acting comes across very naturally.

Sadly, this is a very predictable movie and not worth your time.
