Christmas Horror Movies

I have a video project coming up in December and I need a list of horror movies that happen during Christmas. Here's what I have so far:

The five Silent Night, Deadly Nights (ugh)
Black Christmas and the remake
Gremlins
Jack Frost 1 and 2 (ugh!)

Tales From the Crypt anthology movie from 1972, has a segment with Joan Collins being terrorized by a maniac dressed as Santa Claus. It was remade for the HBO Tales From the Crypt tv show (season 1) as 'And All Through the Night'.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned The Nightmare Before Christmas, although technically, it's not scary and just has horror characters.

Umm I believe Child's Play. Chuckie was a xmas gift. Correct me if I'm wrong. Also Misery. The car crash to "Let it Snow" was great!

Santa's Slay is a modern masterpiece.
Silent Night Deadly Night 1 & 2 are right up there with the best movies of all time.

"The Christmas Tale" part of the 6 films to keep you awake. If you don't mind subtitles. It's made by one of the makers of "REC" and I love it. A very 80's ish movie.

That whole box set turned out to be much better than I expected.

I think thats my favorite out of the ones mentioned. I could see it being scary to kids, but the storyline and it was fun to watch.

Silent Night, Deadly Night is one of the greatest accidental comedies of all time, and a very un-PC one at that.

Spoiler:
The wrong Santa getting shot in front of the orphanage

Wrong forum for this, but there's also the two Futurama XMas episodes.

Though this wouldn't qualify, City of Lost Children has a rather warped Christmas themed dream sequence at the beginning. It was great. Krank as Claus! Excellent stuff. But it only lasts five minutes if that. Rest of the film is also excellent ...

You could always include Gremlins, technically speaking.

I've read some stuff online that basically confirms that
Spoiler:
Harry does indeed die when his van crashes. It flying away is sort of his hallucination and what he wants to happen. Apparently they deleted the final shot, which was the flaming wreckage of his vehicle below.
