Showdown

Bad Santas

Best non-traditional holiday films

Add a list or tag with showdown:badsanta

For the final Showdown of the year, list your top holiday movies… with a twist! We’re talking non-traditional seasonal films: bad Santas, Hanukkah horrors, festive freak-shows, Krampus kitsch, Yuletide action. If it’s on your naughty list, or simply a very merry indie alternative to cheesy holiday blockbusters, we want to know about it. P.S. We want this to be professional, efficient, adult, cooperative. Not a lot to ask.
