Dead Snow Though not strictly about the holidays, this Norwegian zombie slasher still has enough holiday vibes to satisfy any festive horror fan. The zombies aren't normal shamblers either; they're jackboot wearing, goose-stepping Nazi Zombies! CRACKED.COM

The Nightmare Before Christmas Tim Burton and Henry Selick's 1993 animated film gets everything right, from Danny Elfman's endlessly catchy score to the masterful stop-motion animation and character designs. Only a true Scrooge would skip this one. CRACKED.COM

Krampus A new Christmas horror classic from Trick 'r Treat director Michael Dougherty, 2015's Krampus brings the ancient holiday demon from German folklore into a modern day setting. As much a comedy as it is a horror film, Krampus works so well thanks to its all-star cast, which includes Adam Scott, David Koechner and Hereditary's Toni Collette. CRACKED.COM
