Christmas is a time for giving, eating, and spending time with your family. It’s also the only time of year where it’s acceptable to watch Christmas movies, which is a bit of a shame because some of them are really good. So get ready to hunker down on the sofa with a mince pie and a glass of wine, and watch yourself some of the best Christmas films you can get your hands on.
It’s a little unorthodox considering this is also technically a horror movie of sorts. But Gremlins is set at Christmas time, and it is a hilarious tale with an adorable fluffy creature at the centre. Just don’t be fooled by the film’s fairly low-key first and second act, things go absolutely nuts with the arrival of the titular monsters. Fun, gripping, and Christmassy. What more could you want?
Gremlins can be seen on Sky Movies Horror at 12.30pm on Christmas Eve. It’s also available to buy from iTunes.
