10 Monster Movies to Haunt Christmas

24 Dec

Gremlins (1984)
This horror-comedy presents what is traditionally an aviation monster to a prankster. From innocence to innocuous, the tiny creature that Billy Peltzer (Zach Galligan) receives as a Christmas gift shows how dangerous life can become if he does not follow the rules. This film shows what happens when accidents happen, and chaos that ensures explores all the deadly urban legends that can occur during the holiday. From exploding toys to the dangers of trying to climb down a chimney, well, some fears need to be confronted.

The dose of cute versus disgusting has a dark edge that makes this film a delight to watch. And who doesn’t love Gizmo? Howie Mandel lent his voice to give this character life, and this film is the epitome of what made the 80’s horror scene fun!
