So we thought of doing a little list of horror set at Christmas… but, that is so boring and overdone… so instead we are going to tell you what we are watching and looking forward to this Christmas…
This is a tradition, for approx 4 years now, we have watched this short film EVERY Christmas. If you do nothing else on this list, just check it out… you won’t be disappointed. (not for the faint hearted.. hehehe)
Watching: Black Christmas
Okay, so this is probably the epitome of Christmas horror.
It is arguably, the first slasher film, and it definitely set off the whole sorority girl massacre idea anyway. Except this doesn’t include stupid girls running around half naked, instead featuring intelligent college girls (according to the movies, they don’t exist anymore, at least not within sororities… hmm!?) and tackling a lot of real issues around sexism.
In our humble opinion, the film is actually the most frightening horror film we have ever witnessed. It sends shivers down your spine, even for a hard core horror buff. If you are looking for a real scare, sit down with a cup of hot chocolate, a nice warm fire and this is the perfect fright to snuggle up with a loved one in front of for a truly chilling watch this Christmas!
Listening to: She&Him/Steel Panther
She&Him – Baby It’s Cold Outside
If you didn’t know, Zooey Deschanel sings… and the videos for She&Him, her little duet/band? are brilliant… definitely channeling a psycho/slasher vibe here!
Yeah, we are also listening to Steel Panther, because there is a Steel Panther song for EVERY OCCASION… so if you like your mince pies mixed with a little metal, this one’s for you:
Can’t Wait For: Tusk
Okay, so we don’t know when this is gonna happen, but… Kevin Smith is currently plotting a horror film… we are super excited!
Skip to 5mins in…
