Holiday Horror: A Complete Film Guide

It is that time of year when we get to eat, drink and be merry as we hang weeds from the ceiling and forcibly make-out with people. It's a fun time of year, but it's difficult as a horror fan to find something to watch that is both festive AND scary. So I decided to do some research. Below are EVERY holiday themed/set horror flicks to be on the look out for, as well as their subsequent sequels and remakes. Some are classics, while others you shouldn't touch with a...thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.

There are a few extras thrown in for good measure. Either they are favorites of Slaughter Film, or they should be considered horror movies. Have we missed any? Are any of these your favorites?
