Christmastime bears a handful of undisputed trademarks: Hot chocolate. Colorful lights. Bath & Body Works sales. And, of course, holiday movies.

From Scrooged to Gremlins to Black Christmas, click through our gallery above to unwrap some of the creepiest, scariest and darkest holiday movies this side of the North Pole.
