There have been dozens of Christmas-Themed horror movies like Black-Xmas and Silent Night, Deadly Night, but there have rarely been Christmas related sequels to popular horror franchises.
A new holiday classic could be born if many movie franchises focused on a holiday sequel. People usually like happy and family friendly movies on the holidays, but a little fright is never a bad thing.
The following movies would make great Christmas horror films and the plots are easy to adapt to storylines for the characters.
Friday the 13th: Camp Christmas Lake: Every winter, Camp Crystal Lake freezes over and Camp Christmas Lake is born. The annual ice-skating competition is back this year, but global warming has caused the far end of the lake to melt.
Jason Vorhees awakens from his frozen hibernation, escapes from the melted ice, and the killings begin just as the ice-skating competition gets underway. Ice skates sever heads, the ice turns bloody, and Jason goes on a bloody massacre.
Nightmare on Elm Street: It’s the Christmas season. As children dream of Christmas morning, presents, and the love of the holidays, Freddy Krueger is planning his ultimate holiday mission.
Posing as Santa Claus, Krueger haunts the children until they are scared of Santa all together. With Christmas on the brinks, he increases the fear by creating some of the worst holiday nightmares.
Children are attacked by evil elves, speared with Christmas trees, and suffocated by stockings. The towns people must use their holiday spirit to take Krueger down before Christmas day arrives.
Dawn of the Dead: Black Friday: The zombies have invaded the mall again, but this time it’s on the most crowded shopping day of the year- Black Friday. Led by a zombified Santa Claus, the living dead quickly take over the mall, bargain shop, and eat brains.
It is up a rogue group of employees to fight off the zombies. They are already used to defending the crazed shoppers, but now the stakes are raised. Using random tools at their disposal, the battle begins, but can they survive long enough for help to arrive.
House of Wax: The Christmas Village: It’s the ultimate holiday destination. The Christmas Wax Village features dozens of statues, decorations, and Christmas lights. Little do people known is that under the wax Santa, elves, and other decorations are real humans.
Wanting to expand the display for the next season, the crazed creator seeks out new victims. A group of teens must travel through the vast village to try and escape before their blood is drained, wax is applied, and they become a part of the wax wonderland forever.
Leprechaun vs. Santa: Sick of Christmas overshadowing St. Patrick’s Day, the evil Leprechaun sets out to kill Santa and take over Christmas.
When an elf steals the Leprechaun’s gold coin, chaos begins in the North Pole. The elves team up to take on the Leprechaun, but he brings in a few “friends” of his own.
