    How about Santa Claus Conquers the Martians? (or is that too science fiction for this list)

    You know, I must have posted that right after watching it because I don't remember. I checked out the wiki page and apparently something happens on Christmas Day.

    I often watch movies and something happens during Christmas and I think, "maybe this should be a Christmas movie?" But then I can never remember :eek:

    In fact, something I watched recently had a Christmas reference and now I'm gonna rack my brain to figure out what it was!!!

    I thought it was funny when looking at Comcast's holiday horrors they had Child's Play listed. I believe Chucky was a birthday present, not a christmas gift, no? :rolleyes:

    I think The Initiation (1984) takes place on Christmas. Not sure if it is ever verbally referenced, but there's a scene where the guy wanders through a Christmas display / store in the mall.

    Also Mom (1991).

    Sole Survivor (1983) takes place during Christmas, though only mildly hinted.

    Watched Scream Factory's Dark Angel blu-ray tonight, and that takes place on Christmas. So I guess you can add it, assuming you consider it to be a horror movie.

    Also, The Fear features a Christmas amusement park. As does Sean Cunningham's The New Kids, but again, that's assuming you consider it a horror movie.

    Here's another one:

    Christmas with the Dead

    ...anybody seen it? Apparently it's from the same dude who wrote Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers.

    A few other notables that seem to be missing from previous lists:

    The Mystery of Edwin Drood
    (1935)
    The Devil Doll (1936)
    Whoever Slew Auntie Roo? (1971)
    The Legend of Hell House (1973)*
    Blood Beat (1982)
    Deadly Games / Game Over (1989)

    * - While there are no explicit references to Christmas in The Legend of Hell House, the events in the movie are dated and start about a week or two before Christmas and end in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve or Christmas day.

    ...and there is apparently a metric shit-ton of super-obscure / amateur films:
