Best Christmas Horror Movies Streaming Shudder Right Now

After all the gratitude and gluttony of Thanksgiving, Christmas is a time for sharing with others, quality time with family, and gaudy decorations. But for horror fans, Christmas is the time for Krampus and Santa slashers. It’s a time for relishing in the death and decay of Winter and the dark and stormy nights. Christmas horror is an often overlooked subgenre, but it has its roots in the creepy origin stories of many Winter holiday traditions. Around the world, different Christmas monsters bring gruesome punishments to naughty children. Even the omniscient Santa Claus “sees you when you’re sleeping” and “knows when you’ve been bad or good.”


The Winter holiday season is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a Christmas-themed horror binge? For any horror movie marathon, Shudder is the perfect streaming app. It has a well-curated list of horror movies from old to new, as well as its own exclusive content. A monthly subscription is only $5.99, and a free trial is available for new users. Now, no one wants to spend Christmas browsing thumbnails and watching a bunch of trailers to find that not-so-feel-good movie to cozy up to. So get the fire lit, grab some eggnog, and take a pick from below, because Collider’s done the hard part and put together a list of the best Christmas horror movies on Shudder.
