What the heck, I haven't done a list in a while! And it is the season to be festive. What better way to be festive than to watch some films! I love watching movies, and there are some weird, creepy, and downright cool characters out there in holiday land...
KWEENY'S FAVOURITE HOLIDAY MOVIE CHARACTERS
Let's start with the obvious: Sally and Jack from Nightmare Before Christmas! I pretty much love all the characters in this, but Sally and Jack take the cake. They are so adorable and cute. Their is this innocence about their relationship, something so rare to find these days. I love how it unfolds, and I love the tenderness that transpires between them. It's not overly sexualized, but there is a sense of genuine love that they have for one another. It warms the romantic parts of my dark, black heart.
Evil Santa from Santa's Slay. This movie is retarded holiday crap, but I love it. I love that they got a wrestler to play Santa. I love that he's a big, burly, Norse asshole who goes around killing people. For the performance alone, Evil Santa is worth watching.
Ricky Cladwell from Silent Night Deadly Night 2! This scene in particular is one of my favourites. I laughed my ass off watching this movie. I know he's intended to be creepy and crazy, but mostly he's just silly and funny because of Freeman's performance. It's Garbage day mother fuckers!
The Gremlins from the original Gremlins film! It was a holiday film after all, but damn were those little critters creepy, weird and silly as hell! I love how they got into trouble. If you fed them after midnight, you had a huge mess on your hands. This movie was one of my fondest holiday memories. Can I have one as a pet?
The Grinch from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas! He has a disdain for the season that rivaled my own at the time I first watched this movie. I am kinda a grinch sometimes, but Creepmas cheers me up. I am glad I found Creepmas, so I don't have to steal children's gifts to make myself feel better that all I am getting for Christmas is coal and a paddling from Krampus!
Scrooge from A Christmas Carol! I love this Charles Dickens tale, mostly because of this miserable old man! I haven't seen him in CGI (as this movie is a clip from that) but he sure looks creepy in it! There have been many adaptations of him, but as long as he is a horrible, grumpy man I am happy. I always kind of hated the ending of this one though. Happy endings bore me.
Yukon Cornelius from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer! To be fair, a lot of characters in Rankin Bass's holiday stuff are CREEPY AS HELL. But this guy...he just keeps licking his pick axe. IT WEIRDS ME OUT EVEN NOW! I don't know why that is his super power or why he can wrestle yeti's and shit, but I don't wanna know. I just hope he never tries to lick me. I'd go screaming for the hills.
