Best Holiday Themed Horror Movies


The Top Ten

1 Black Christmas (1974)

I absolutely adore this film. Starring a magnificent Olivia Hussey and one of my favorites John Saxon. Atmospheric, tense and eerie. And yeah the remake isn't as bad as people made it out to be, it's pretty enjoyable. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

2 Halloween

Probably the most iconic slasher movie. Jamie Lee Curtis was incredible - Magnolia

3 April Fool's Day

Some horror fans find the ending disappointing but I love it! Great movie but it only works when you see it the first time - Magnolia

4 My Bloody Valentine (1981)

One of the greatest slasher films of the 80's - Magnolia

5 Happy Birthday to Me

The ending was unpredictable. The kills were shocking. Awesome movie overall - Magnolia

6 Trick ‘R Treat (2007)
7 Mother's Day (2010)

The original was good but this remake was perfect! Very intense and creepy - Magnolia

8 Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
9 Prom Night (1980)

A bit underrated movie with Jamie Lee Curtis. She kicked ass back then - Magnolia

10 Halloween II

If you want to know what happened after the events of the first movie Halloween II wraps it up nicely.

The Contenders

11 Black Christmas (2006)

Why so much hate? It is a decent remake. They changed it a bit but the kills were impressive - Magnolia
