Holiday Movies

Non-Traditional Holiday Films

Only a few of these are really holiday films, but they are all set during the holiday season and would be quite different films without the backdrop. Thet are divided into the following categories:

Science Fiction and Fantasy

Perfect for getting into the imaginativeness of the season or its dystopian aspects.

Thrillers/Action

"Die Hard" has to be first on the list because it is the one action film that really does get into the holiday spirit.

Domestic Dramas

Not sure why it is, but most of these films feature dysfunctional families.

Black Comedies

This season is not all jolly and light.

Mysteries/Whodunnits

Christmas is in the air, if not in the murderers' minds.
