Santa has lost reindeer, has a beard yellowed with smoke and the breath that smells terribly of alcohol. Billy Bob Thornton pre Fargo in a very bad state of grace in the Coen comedy in which he plays a serial burglar Santa Claus in shopping malls. Between dwarves of color, a famous "fuck me, Santa Claus' pronounced by Lorelei Gilmore Girls and disgust for chubby children, it is proof that life at Christmas, Frank Capra permitting, can also not be wonderful.
In 1974, Bob Clark inaugurated the genre of horror and Christmas holidays in general recounting the heinous crimes of a lunatic who escapes from the psychiatric hospital on Christmas Eve and begins to take out a number of girls gathered for a dinner celebration in what once was his home. And, well ahead of Dexter, the serial killer Christmas loves using industrial quantities of cellophane ... With a horrendous remake of 2006.
Before Tim Burton becomes old and begins to deal with reworkings of fairytales idearne and others tried to produce their own. The Amazing Adventures and unconventional Christmas melodies of Jack Skellington and his companions it is a perfect example. No reindeer or elfetti, space severed heads and worms in a wonderful celebration (for other Disney) against the Christma
Rare Exports (2010)
Another round, another gift. So to speak, since in this Finnish film of 2010 Father Christmas is none other than a demon that feeds on children. Ah yes, the old bearded recovered from the ice of Lapland in this case has goat horns. Yet the elves is not that they are just good creatures and funny ...
Yes, we were not wrong because we are not referring to the lamentable tale starring Michael Keaton turned into a snowman before becoming, twenty years later, Birdman. No no, we're talking about underground stuff, namely the horror of Michael Cooney dated 1996 era full of horror schlock on holidays on the calendar. For here it is tell the criminal enterprises of a serial killer chased by the police on a snow-covered road and collided with a truck containing radioactive material and turns into a snowman murderess.
In 1984 was released in theaters what is the best example of fantasy / horror Christmas (probably) of all time. We are talking about the famous first episode of the saga of the Gremlins, directed by Joe Dante. The story you know it all so needless to repeat it but it is always good to remember that when you go to buy something alive in a shop in eastern antiquities where you do not even received dubbietto maybe some of what you are carrying home would be better get it up.
Parenti serpenti (1992)
"But then there are secrets between us?". Well, to tell the truth too much of one. And it was just secrets. Extraordinary masterpiece of Mario Monicelli and one of the films most wicked and cynical than ever not only on Christmas but also on the family and feelings. Final conciliatory? Go elsewhere, please.
Benvenuti in casa Gori (1990)
If you are a member of a large family that traditionally is found all together at Christmas you tell the truth, how many of your dozens of relatives you really want to see and how many can not stand? One answer they give it and Ugo Chiti Alessandro Benvenuti in a comedy of 1990 reveals the full horror of the social Christmas dinner: an act of compulsion that forces parents who hate each other together to spend the most awaited of the year.
Regalo di Natale (1986)
There are those who (like Diego Abatantuono, Alessandro Haber and Carlo Delle Piane) of relatives has few, has none or just prefer to be alone and go and play in secret mountains of money or even your own house of cards. As in the film by Pupi Avati in 1986. At whose house? You call them, if you like, friends. But the reality is a little less wonderful. So it just has to say "Merry Christmas, hello."
Time Bomb's rating:
Babbo Natale qui non è più un ladro, ma direttamente un serial killer. La versione cattiva di Mamma ho perso l’aereo alla francese. Già, perché in questo film del 1990 il protagonista è sempre un bambino rimasto da solo a casa la notte di Natale. Peccato che a fargli visita non sia la banda del rubinetto capitanata dallo strampalato Joe Pesci, bensì uno psicopatico vestito da Babbo Natale che è appena stato licenziato dalla madre del bambino, direttrice di un grande magazzino. E in suo aiuto non c’è nemmeno la tarantola di Buzz…
At Christmas they are all better. Or almost all. Yes, because there is someone who really hates Christmas. Parties, dinners and lunches infinite, relatives of relatives, cousins of the fifteenth degree, screaming infants, panettone without candied fruit, pandori stanchions (i) the Punic wars and 298esima vision of Bedknobs and Broomsticks and Little Lord Fauntleroy: a pain absolute. If you can not stand any more of the usual smielati Christmas films that we served up for you every year and the parties are more a nightmare than a dream, here's a playlist of movies by real grinch.
