For a time of joyous celebration, the holidays do seem to inspire an awful lot of horror, kittens. Maybe it’s something about those long, dark nights. Or maybe just that slightly sinister man in a big red suit. Whatever the reason, let’s see how many of these thirteen holiday horror classics you know! Guess the movies in the comments below and I’ll pick one lucky winner to receive a $10 Amazon instant gift card. Here we go!
- Movie #1
- Movie #2
- Movie #3
- Movie #4
- Movie #5
- Movie #6
- Movie #7
- Movie #8
- Movie #9
- Movie #10
- Movie #11
- Movie #12

That’s it! Now put your guesses in the comments below. I’ll randomly select a winner on Saturday for the Amazon gift card. As a special bonus, if you can name which
two three of these movies have already been featured on TYoH, I’ll give you an extra entry in the drawing. Good luck!

Film #6 is Gremlins, but that’s all I know for sure. One of them has to be Silent Night, Deadly Night… maybe #11
Santa’s Slay is probably in there, too.
Correct on your first two guesses! For the third, I can neither confirm nor deny with no number…. 😉
1) hmmmm no clue…
2) the Black Christmas remake??
4) Dead End
5) Don’t Open Til Christmas??
7) Black Christmas
8) is this that Dutch movie called “Saint”??
9) Santa’s Slay
10) Silent Night
11) Silent Night, Deadly Night
12) Christmas Evil??
8 out of 13! Not too shabby!
6. Rare Exports
Ooo, good pull, but no. Think 80’s holiday horror classic! 🙂
1) Gingerdead man
2) Black Christmas remake
3) Christmas Evil
4) Dead End (really like this movie BTW)
5) Don’t Open til Christmas (definitely)
7) Black Christmas 1974
8) Rare Exports
9) Santa’s Slay – the best scene in the movie (Fran Drescher: “Santa! ha, ha, ha, ha, ha”)
10) Silent Night
11) Silent Night, Deadly Night
You really got me on the last 2. you couldn’t throw in a Nightmare Before Christmas pic to make it easy?
I’m guessing Don’t Open Til Christmas and Silent Night, Deadly Night for the bonus points.
“Boy, this was fun. Are we at the airport Clark?”
Very nicely done – 10 out of 13! I’ll give you a hint on the last one: it’s a horror short and one of the ones we’ve previously featured on TYoH!
I am coming at this from another angle. So far I know that none of them are Jaws or Star Wars. Or Fargo.
There’s snow and body-disposal-by-woodchipper. Don’t be so sure.
Ooh, I should watch Fargo tonight. Haven’t seen it in a while.
Nothing like a little kidnapping and murder to put you in the mood to spend the holidays with family.
I know I’ve seen 4 & 5 but can’t remember names, and 10 looks awesome, look forward to the answer on that one!
Thanks, Gina! I’ll post the winner and the names of the films on Saturday. 🙂
I know what #6 is but that is about it…. ** Hangs head in shame** and I totes met Billy…. in case you forgot or something….
Pics or it didn’t happen.
I ask that you kindly refer to “Three Words to Describe Walker Stalker” …. The gallery holds the proof…. (Shameless plug to get more readers)
I’ve got the other two, but I cheated for those.
*checks the rules*
Nope, I don’t see where it says cheating isn’t okay.
It’s the only way to be.
Lots of “I should know this one” but no answers. Hi Eva!
Hi there, Mz. Maau! I’ll have the winner and the movie answers up tomorrow…feel free to come back and visit any time! 🙂
I’m afraid I did lousy on this one, sweetie. The only ones I got for sure was #6 (Gremlins) and #7 *Black Christmas). Do I have to turn in my Horror Nerd Santa hat? 😦

Nice work, remotehans! Spot on for the main list, but two for three on the bonus! 🙂
Also not Spies Like Us
You’ve watched some of these movies WITH ME. 😐
Wow, I didn’t do well on these at all.
I would’ve got Gremlins of course, and I’ve seen Silent Night, Deadly Night, but I don’t think I’ve seen these others.
However, it did make me think of the Tales from the Darkside Christmas episode. Did you ever watch that show? I remember the Christmas episode was pretty scary. At least it was when I was much younger and watched it 🙂
Fun as always. Hope all is going well for you.
Oh, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that one! It is on my list for watching tomorrow – thank you! How is everything in the world of Paul D. Dail? Any new horror in the works?
“It wasn’t Santa Claus”
That series was definitely in my roots of childhood horror development.
Anyway, things are going well for me, writing-wise. Finished the first draft of my second novel recently. Just need to get started on the edits now (read: mix of excitement and dread). Finally getting around to making The Imaginings into a trade paperback. My Free Five stories have been doing great, and I’ve been working on submitting some of my other short stories to pro markets so I can get my HWA membership (and maybe even a buck or two).
All that along with part-time teaching and raising two toddlers. Hmm. I suddenly feel pretty proud of myself. Now if some of those publishers could also realize how awesome I am 🙂
How are things in your world?
Here you go.
…people forget that Gremlins was a holiday horror movie, glad you included it.
Thanks, Robert! It’s always been a favorite. 🙂
