Eight of the Weirdest Christmas Movies

With just a few hours left before the big day, it might be nice to sit back, relax and drink in the holiday cheer from your own silver screen. The problem is, not everybody is on the same page when it comes to making a good Christmas movie. Here are eight to avoid:

One Magic Christmas (1985)

1985 was an awkward year for Disney. One Magic Christmas is truly depressing and that takes forever to get to the “magic” part. Poor Ginny Grainger (Mary Steenburgen) has no Christmas spirit. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that her husband had just been shot and killed and her two children were kidnapped and drowned. Then, it turns out that the two kids are alive and well. Then, one child is kidnapped again and brought to the North Pole. Finally, with a bit of magic from Santa, all of the tragic events appear to not have happened after all, revealing it to be a “magic Christmas.” A Wonderful Life this is not.
