There’s no beating around the bush: Christmas does not lend itself to horror or sci-fi. Let’s be honest guys, we’re all (probably) adults, we know that there’s nothing scary or mystical about Christmas except for how sick you can get of those damn songs and how many people get trampled during Black Friday. It’s the holiday of warm and fuzzies and mass consumerism. So why do directors insist on making these holiday horror and sci-fi films? What’s the appeal as a subject?
I’m not one to beat a zombie horse, but I guess I got to spell it out for future movie makers so we can stop this ridiculous trend. Christmas is cheesy enough as it is, we don’t need these polluting the pine-needle-scented air anymore.
