Holiday Horror to watch on Netflix this week

Black Christmas (2019)

Black Christmas is a holiday slasher film, a loose remake of the cult classic film from 1974. (not to be confused with the 2006 remake) The story follows a sisterhood of girls who attend Hawthorne College and are preparing for a season of holiday parties. When a masked stalker begins a killing spree of the sorority sisters, the girls take matters into their own hands.


The Danish horror-fantasy series Elves follows a family who decide to spend their holidays vacationing on a remote island. Unbeknownst to them, ancient elves thrive on the island. They quickly discover the residents are strongly religious and live in balance with the fierce woodland creatures. When the elves begin to terrorize the family, their holiday getaway turns into something very different than their planned attempt to reconnect their family.

All My Friends Are Dead

This one isn’t actually a Christmas horror, but All My Friends Are Dead takes place during a New Year’s Eve party with Christmas decorations still displayed, so that’s close enough. The Polish horror-comedy follows friends ready to ring in the new year, but as events unfold, secrets are exposed, and hearts are broken, leading to a shocking outcome.

Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities: Episode 4 – “The Outside” (2022)

She receives the gift of a popular lotion, Alo Glo, which upon the first application, Stacy develops a rash, which begins her horror story.
