5 Christmas Movies We Wish Didn’t Exist

Christmas might be wonderful, but these movies sure aren’t.

1. The Polar Express

This movie is filled with animated people who look a little too human, and the creepiness doesn’t stop there, because a bunch of kids are taken away from home by a strange train conductor. We’re all taught never to talk to strangers as kids, let alone get in a train with them. Merry Christmas, you’re getting kidnapped!

2. Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas

A furry, green Jim Carrey was in my nightmares after watching this one. The live-action version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas is filled with Whos with deformed features and wild fashion choices. In my opinion, the original animated version of this movie is strange enough-- we never needed another one.   

3. Jack Frost

This one’s supposed to be a family movie. So why, why, why does it kill a little boy’s father in a car crash and turn him into a terrifying talking snowman, only for him to melt away at the end? Someone, please pass me the tissues.

4. Santa Buddies

I love dogs as much as anyone, believe me. What I don’t love is dogs who talk (nightmares) and lack Christmas spirit. Mostly, it seems like a desperate attempt at another super-cheesy installment of the Air Bud spin-off series.

5. The Nightmare before Christmas

Is it a Halloween movie? Is it a Christmas movie? I. Have. No. Idea. The fact that it’s supposed to be an animated movie for kids is preposterous, and it certainly does not fill me with Christmas joy.

Now, I’m not a complete Grinch, these movies do have A FEW redeeming qualities. Buuuut.. I wouldn’t exactly miss them if they were gone.
