It is almost Christmas again- doesn't the year fly by? It is time for those golden oldies to come on TV and some not so good movies that we have seen again and again..To start with, here at Jigsaw's Lair, we are not all about the dark side. Yes, we do indulge in it a lot more horror than most people, but we do have a softer side. Christmas is about family and enjoying some great films that make us smile or cry.We both like to watch It's a Wonderful Life at Christmas. I, Amanda, tend to enjoy it more than Jigsaw, but hey, it's Christmas!
Another classic I like to watch is Gone With the Wind. It would not be Christmas without this epic movie. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is still one of my all time funny Christmas movies. I just love it and I watch it every year. Hmmm, what else? Gremlins of course! It is not strictly a Christmas movie, but I enjoy it at this time of year. Then there is Die Hard and White Christmas....So many sentimental movies that we like to watch.....Brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?
Now, don't get me wrong, I love the sentimental Christmas movies, but what would Christmas be without a gem like Silent Night, Deadly Night. It brings the true Christmas message to life. To see a killer Santa on the loose really makes you enjoy it all the more. Sinister grandad scares his grandson by telling him bad stories...Can you top that for festive fun? And what about Black Christmas? A psycho hides in the attic of a sorority house and kills young women one by one...Gives you a warm glow inside....Christmas Evil tells of a poor delusional man who decides to become Santa and delivers bloody gifts for everyone....Santa is indeed giving... Silent Night is another killer Santa movie which is not great, but worth a look if you have time on your hands.Well, there are plenty more movies that I would watch at Christmas, but these few come to mind. If you have any suggestions for a good Christmas movie , then let me know...
