    Halloween gets the holiday best and is the best film out of all of the holiday horrors.

    Well of course Halloween, this one's too obvious.

    But for the sake of arguement, Mother's Day and Silent Night Deadly Night are quite amazing.

    Holiday horror is the shit!

    april 1st brought us April Fools Day, Slaughter High and Killer Party!!

    but Halloween is the best, because the atmosphere of autumn creates spookiness, with the evenings lasting longer, more hours of darkness outside, and pumpkins, harvest, scarecrows, etc

    Valentine's Day is always a good day to watch people get hacked to pieces (in 3D).

    It is terribly unoriginal, but I have to say Halloween. There's no denying that it is the holiday that celebrates horror more than all others. Here in Denmark Halloween has only recently been introduced, while Shrovetide (in February) is a much older tradition for children dressing up.

    And I love the Halloween franchise - Halloween II was what got me hooked on horror on my teens, and it stille scares me to this day.

    Halloween is my favorite holiday and John Carpenter's 1978 original film is simply timeless.

    I'll be a contrarian and go with APRIL FOOLS DAY.It's a love it or hate it film but I think it embraces the spirit of the holiday in a way that some of the others don't.It's a tricky film for a tricky day.

    Probably not my favourite Holliday themed horror film of all time, but it's my current favourite at the moment: Mother's Day.

    And yes, I'm looking forward to the remake.

    Favourite holiday-themed horror movie: The genuinely creepy Black Christmas.

    Favourite horror-movie-watching holiday: Friday the 13th. (I gather we're using the word 'holiday' loosely here). I always feel obliged to watch something on a Fri 13th, and best of all, it always lands on a Friday (yes, really!) so it's not a work night! :D

    I'm just going to say April Fool's Day to be different. Not a bad little film and quite entertaining.

    Gotta go with my old favorite, the original Halloween. I've enjoyed it since I was a young kid. It captured the spirit of October 31 perfectly.

    Christmas. There's better offering IMO (Black Christmas, SNDN, To All a Goodnight, etc.).

    Halloween for sure, but I also think Christmas makes for a good time for screening horror or any of your favorite films. I'm surprised how much great horror is set around the Xmas holidays.
