I. Holiday Christmas Horror Movies Releasing in 2020
Commonly, stories crafted in the holiday season like Christmas are assumed to surround the most joy of the holiday. In recent years, directors tend to turn traditionally joyful celebrations into nightmare scenarios. Obviously, 2020 is exactly the time when horror has an impressive way of taking the happiest holidays and making them into the most horrific by morphing innocent traditions and customs into something more sinister. Now let’s check out the top holiday Christmas horror movies 2020 list below.
1. All The Creatures Were Stirring
First released in 2018, the horror movie All The Creatures Were Stirring follows a couple on Christmas Eve as they venture into a bizarre theater where they are greeted with several horror stories all pertaining to the holiday season. It features demons, ghosts, and a threatening game of White Elephant at an office Christmas party. While providing ample amounts of scares, All The Creatures Were Stirring has the additional element of being a horror-comedy, which may appeal to some who like moments of levity with their holiday chills. It was available to stream on Shudder on November 30, 2020.
2. Christmas Presence
Just like All The Creatures Were Stirring, Christmas Presence was also first released in 2018. And this one of the best Christmas horror movies 2020 was available for streaming on November 30, 2020, exclusively on Shudder. The horror movie is about a group of friends, who rent a lodge for the holidays rather than spending time with their families. And here they uncover that their remote location has a sinister plan for their stay in mind.
This might be the most anticipated movie in the Christmas Horror Movies 2020 list. The thriller movie features 24 short movies compiled together to create one gruesome story pertaining to cheer, fear, and the holiday spirit. With two dozen directors, all of whom bring different perspectives on the sub-genre, contributing to the movie, Deathcember has the opportunity to provide fans with holiday-themed horrors they may not have seen before. While Christmas is a major contributor to the sub-genre, it is possible that this new addition could feature stories surrounding Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and other less often explored celebrations. Deathcember was available on November 24, 2020, on major digital streaming platforms in the U.S. and Canada.
4. The Nights Before Christmas
