It's officially Christmas by my watch and that means one thing: 24 hours of "A Christmas Story." It sounds pretty awesome. I haven't seen "A Christmas Story" since last Christmas so it'll definitely be a treat. But if 24 hours of wholesome family togetherness and a constant repeat of "you'll shoot your eye out, kid" aren't cutting it for you this season, then sink your teeth into my list of Christmas horror movies.

Below I have listed some great horror movies to enjoy that all involve the magic of Christmas. These are just suggestions, you may have already seen these, you may have not. I've only recently seen two of these movies for the first time and I must say, they totally amp up the Christmas spirit! Now, if you're feeling like maybe a weirdo for enjoying horror flicks on what is supposed to be a night of spreading cheer, don't. Hollywood Reporter has a great read on why horror flicks are more appealing this time of year! 'Tis the season!

    Black Christmas

    1974

    This classic holiday slasher still stands the test of time, and it's still creepy AF! Can you imagine finding out someone living in your attic?!

    Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

    This was recommended to me by my boss and I gotta say- not bad! For many, finding the long lost tomb of Santa would be quite the discovery, but I don't think anyone could have imagined the evil it would unleash!

    Silent Night, Deadly Night

    1984

    This is a great example of the holidays making someone SNAP! Of course, watching your parents get murdered by a psycho in a Santa suit and being raised in an abusive school could be contributing factors...

    P2

    2007

    Okay, I only recently saw this at the recommendation of a friend and O.M.G! Creepy stalker plus working late on Christmas Eve equals an intense edge of your seat holiday!

    Krampus

    2015

    Okay, so many think this movie wasn't that scary, but I do think it is! A half goat half demon whose origins can't really be traced but who is well known for rewarding well behaved children and brutally punishes bad kids. This movie is a ton of fun and will totally make your nephews behave on their own!
