We all get tired of the typical Christmas movies after a while.  The animation, the extreme sappiness, the kid themes...they just get old quick. Here's a list of some alternates you can watch instead!

Silent Night, Deadly Night

A young boy witnesses a mall Santa commit an awful crime. Years later, the traumatized boy snaps and goes looking for revenge.

 

Batman Returns

Catwoman and the Penguin launch an attack on Gotham City during the Christmas season.

 

Gremlins

The insane cuteness of Gizmo in a Santa hat is balanced out by the horrific story of how the father of Phoebe Cates died.

 

Die Hard

This movie is the subject of an eternal "is this a Christmas movie or not?" debate. I land on the side of YES.

 

Rocky IV

The match between Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago takes places on Christmas!
