Holidays Films to Make Your Christmas Scary

If you're feeling all Scrooge this holiday season, then Nick Dawson's selection of movies that take a darker look at Christmas is perfect for you.
Slide 10: 'R Xmas (2001)
"This Christmas, a different kind of snow is falling," the 'R Xmas trailer pronounced. Yes, what could conjure up yuletide cheer more than if your dope dealing husband is kidnapped by a corrupt cop (Ice-T) and you have to run around New York City trying to get the many thousands of dollars it will take to save his sorry ass. Abel Ferrara's movie, starring The Sopranos' Drea de Matteo as the burdened wife having a Christmas Eve from hell, also features a plotline in which she and her hubby––much like Arnold Schwarzenegger in the rather more wholesome Jingle All the Way––go to ridiculous lengths to get hold of the hottest seasonal toy to keep their bratty young daughter happy. A movie which puts the "crack" into "Christmas cracker."
