Christmas Films for Geeks

My favourite thing about Christmas is the Christmas Lectures, even though I always manage to miss most of them. I’m not good at keeping up with the tv.  My second favourite thing about Christmas though is the Christmas Films! These are the Christmas films I love.

Monster Christmas Films

monster christmas films - gremlins


I only saw this for the first time last year, I don’t know why I waited so long to watch it. It’s the perfect Christmas film, piles of snow, cute fuzzy creatures, a love story and lots of violence and mayhem!

Troll Hunter

This isn’t set at Christmas, but it has some snow in it, therefore it counts.

 Action Christmas Films

action christmas films - die hard

Die Hard

As Gremlins, but with a rather attractive Bruce Willis instead of fuzzy creatures! I watch this every Christmas without fail.

Horror Christmas Films

Rare Exports – A Christmas Tale

A Finnish horror film, you will never think of Santa Clause the same way after watching this.



Dead Snow

My boyfriend made me put this in. It’s full of snow and zombies and plenty of gore. It is rather crap but a lot of fun.

Fantasy Christmas Films


Live action version of the Terry Pratchett story where Death has to play the Hogfather at Christmas time.


The Never Ending Story

Not set at Christmas, and I don’t think there’s any snow in it but for some reason this makes me feel very Christmassy. Maybe because it’s been on tv every Christmas since forever.



Lovely version of a lovely story!


Funny Christmas Films

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Almost set at Christmas, we saw this at the old Hyde Park picture house last Saturday night. Very funny, the bit where John Candy is driving the wrong way on a motorway is genius!
