December 11th, 2009 by unkle lancifer · 26 Comments

Would you just look at all these stills from Christmas themed horror flicks I scrounged up! How many can you identify?

If you’re not sure, feel free to guess. If you don’t care to guess, leave a comment telling us which Christmas movie (horror or otherwise) is your favorite!

One lucky commenter is going to win a fabulous Kindertrauma T-shirt sort of like the one worn below by Kinderpal Taylor!

Note: The Kindertrauma prize t-shirt will be white and size medium, large, or extra-large (winner’s choice!) with the same artwork as the one Taylor picked up at Kindertrauma Mart.

Also: The winner will be announced tomorrow so that everybody will get a chance regardless of time zone! (Step it up Left Coasters!) Good luck to all!

    Six is Too All a Goonight. Awesomely bad and awesomely awesome.

    Alas, the only 2 of these that I knew for sure have been guessed already.  I’m crying!  (Again.)
    And in the immortal words of Tim Meadows, it is one kickass shirt!  Ronald McDonald seemed to think so too.

    I’ve been working my way through the Silent Night Deadly Night series this past week.  Last night I watched part 3…I have a feeling, as I move forward, that number one will remain my fave…

  • 10 eugeniepetiteNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 9:37 am

    1.  Gremlins
    5.  Christmas Evil?
    10.  Black Christmas
    13.  Tales From the Crypt (1972)
    This one was kinda tough!  I love Christmas Evil, if even for the ending alone.  I dunno if it’s true or not, but someone once told me that the deranged Santa in this is played by Fiona Apple’s dad.

  • 11 FatherOfTearsNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 10:14 am

    1. Gremlins.  I have to admit I’m not much of a Christmas horror buff.  I tend to gravitate to the Christams themed episodes on that show that had a guy & two robots making fun of movies.

  • 12 goblinNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 11:15 am

    No. 8 is ‘Santa’s Slay.’

  • 13 micksterNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 11:52 am

    #1 Gremlins (1984)
    #10 Black Christmas (1974)
    #13 Tales From the Crypt (1972)
    #15 Tales From the Crypt (TV series)

    I love Black Christmas (1974)! It is awesome!

  • 14 HorrorCatNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    I really need to start getting up earlier so I actually have a shot of guessing these.  The only ones I knew were the Tales from the Crypt episodes/movie.  BUT NOW I have so many more movies to choose from for my Black Christmas Party!

  • 15 littledeadmommyNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    All the ones I knew were already guessed. 🙁  and great, looks like I’ll go back to the recurring childhood nightmares about ronald mcdonald.

  • 16 matt_318No Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 3:53 pm

    I only got a few …
    1.) Gremlins (1984)
    10.) Black Christmas (1974)
    12.) Black Christmas (2006)

  • 17 aunt johnNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 4:14 pm

    It’s not a horror film, but I’ve always been a sucker for the MARLO THOMAS made-for-T.V. classic IT HAPPENED ONE CHRISTMAS.

  • 18 TaylorNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    Wasn’t there an annual TV Christmas movie with Mickey Rooney and the kid from Critters?  I feel like I would watch that one every year when I was little.
    Obviously it had a huge impact on me.  Ah, [lack of] memories…

  • 19 micksterNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 6:12 pm

    Hey Taylor,
    I think you are thinking of It Came Upon the Midnight Clear (1984).

  • 20 Andre DumasNo Gravatar // Dec 11, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    Drats I am misinformed on Christmas horror apparently. Oh well. I lost miss Horror blogosphere so maybe I will win a kindertrauma t-shirt!

  • 21 PhantomWerewolfNo Gravatar // Dec 12, 2009 at 12:58 am

    I won enough stuff for this year, so I won’t post any guesses. Just wanted to say that some of those old timey christmas decorations are terrifying! Like… more so than the movies they’re in.
    Some classics in this line up though. Christmas and horror is just so satisfying for some reason.

  • 22 fishmonger19No Gravatar // Dec 12, 2009 at 10:08 am

    These are all from “The Greatest Story Ever Told,” right?

    I’ll admit, though, I can’t really see most of these images. I’m Jewish.

  • 23 fishmonger19No Gravatar // Dec 12, 2009 at 10:16 am

    I DO know the picture with Taylor is from “Mac & Me.”
