5 Unconventional Christmas Movies For People Who Hate Christmas Movies

Christmas movies are not for everyone but here are some for the Christmas movie hater

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for Christmas movie lovers. If you are like me, then Christmas movies probably are not your cup of tea. Rom-Coms and comedies are usually what dominates the Christmas movie genre, and they usually are not good. Who remembers Jingle All The Way, Christmas With The Kranks or even Four Christmases? I hope you don’t.

It is hard to find a movie to watch during the holidays but don’t you worry, I’ve got your back. I have found the unimaginable, good Christmas movies to watch if you are not a fan of cheesy Christmas movies.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

We can all relate to Jack Skellington

BUY HERE: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton’s holiday classic is perfect for the person who despises Christmas and has a deep fond love for Halloween. Sounds impossible? Well, The Nightmare Before Christmas has it all. It finds a balance between being a Christmas movie and being something entirely different. If you have a dark heart or just feel out of place during the holidays, give this a try.

Eyes Wide Shut

Christmas and cults might not go hand and hand…depending on who you ask

BUY HERE: Eyes Wide Shut

Christmas can make you question if you even belong here. Stanley Kubrick sure knows the feeling. In his swan song, Tom Cruise goes a journey to discover himself during the most inconvenient time of year – Christmas. If you like dark cult movies, then Eyes Wide Shut may be for you. Just don’t expect to be overwhelmed with Christmas spirit after this one but who does anyway?

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

“Merry Christmas, sorry I fucked you over”

BUY HERE: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

The good old murder mystery Christmas movie. Robert Downey Jr. stars in this Christmas satire with a neo-noir feel. The characters are a private eye, a struggling actress, and a thief. Yes, this is not the type of movie your Christmas caroller would watch during the holiday which makes it perfect for this list.

Krampus

Santa brings the gifts, Krampus brings the pain

BUY HERE: Krampus

The German holiday favorite has finally got a movie, and it’s really good. This horror-comedy will appeal to both fans of Gremlins and Trick r Treat. It celebrates the dark side of the holiday by actually giving those naughty kids what they deserve. It starts off mocking your typical Christmas comedy before turning into a full-on scare fest. Horror fans, this one is for you.

Gremlins

Three rules: no sun, no water and don’t feed him after midnight

BUY HERE: Gremlins

Anyone hates just how commercialized Christmas has become? Then check out Gremlins. It critics Christmas and how everything about it has become a way for businesses to profit. It is both funny and dark while still having a Christmas theme. The creepy reimaging of “Silent Night” will definitely feel like you’re watching a Christmas nightmare. Joe Dante will make you think twice next time your kid begs for a dog as a present.
