Make your Christmas Macabre with Horror-Shop!Books/Art/Culture,News Fangoria Staff
While Halloween is certainly the highlight of the year for horror fans, there are many ways to embrace Christmas for those whose holiday spirit runs a little more on the blood red side of things. A great place to start would be in Germany (with shipping available to North America) where you can find costumes and accessories to make the holidays as dark and twisted as you like!
Many go the traditional route and dress as a classic Santa Claus for all the good little boys and girls, but why not switch things up and scare them into being good for next year as you dress up as a twisted “Horrible Santa” or “Krampus”, the horned beast that punishes naughty children during the Christmas season? If you prefer your Christmas to skew sexy as opposed to scary, check out their bikini version of Ms. Santa, the Hot Snow Woman or their Sexy Elves for something a little different to gift or wear yourself this season.
With time off from work or school and all that blistery cold weather that makes you want to stay indoors, this is your opportunity to settle in for some quality time with your television. If holiday classics like IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE and RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER don’t ring your bell, introduce your friends and family to alternative classics like BLACK CHRISTMAS and SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, or the more family-friendly GREMLINS and A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
This is also the perfect time of year to catch up on all those films you’ve been hearing about over the last few months but have yet to see, like THE BABADOOK, OCULUS, UNDER THE SKIN and STARRY EYES. Why not start with FANGO’s own Year In Horror picks for 2014 and see if you agree with our staff on what shouldn’t be missed from the past year:
So bundle up, grab a drink and a friend (or both) and settle in for a horror-filled Christmas!
