October marches on, and so does our countdown to All Hallows Eve. This year, rather than trying to do a full 31 film reviews or something truly time-consuming like that, most of what I’m going to be posting are favorite trailers, short films, some full-length movies, and other items just to kind of help get everyone in the spirit of what really is one of my favorite holidays.
No, this isn’t a Ghostbusters post, though I do, of course, love that movie.
Instead its about what happens when you mix two of the most popular holidays – Halloween and Christmas – into one film. You wind up with the rather effective 1974 proto-slasher Black Christmas:
Of course, you also wind up with a rather dreadful 2006 remake, but the less said about that, the better.
So what’s your favorite holiday themed horror flick? Let me know either in the comments below, or over on the Durnmoose Movies Facebook page which can be found here.
