6 Non-Traditional Christmas Movies to Stream on Netflix This Season

From raunchy comedies, to horror and action, these five Christmas-themed films available to stream on Netflix buck the trend of the traditional holiday fare.

A quick search of the word, “Christmas” on the streaming movie service pulled up 11 pages worth of movies centered around the most wonderful time of the year. Most of which is your normal family-friendly fare such as ABC Family made-for-TV movies and the like, but these six come out of left-field to break the mold of what a Christmas movie is. If you’re looking for something a little “outside the stocking” (see what I did there?), give these a try.

Santa Conquers the Martians

Plot: Zombies don’t care what time of year it is, when they want to feast on brains, they will feast on brains. This horror-comedy centers around a hapless janitor going about his normal business of cleaning the bathroom while an office Christmas party takes place outside. Little does he know that everyone at the party has been turned into zombies. Trapped in a women’s bathroom stall, the guy must fight his way out if he wants to survive. Hit the button below to see the trailer, but be warned, it is pretty graphic and gory.

Plot: What if Santa wasn’t a jolly old elf who delivers toys to children all around the world, but some sort of demon who has been buried in the mountains of Finland for hundreds of years?

Happy Naked Christmas

Plot: Take any American Pie or National Lampoon film, center it around Christmas time in Korea, and you have Happy Naked Christmas. According to Wikipedia (so take it for what you will), the film is about “Byung-ki, a taciturn village patrolman who helps out with trivial tasks like distributing promotional papers, though he dreams of fighting evil. One day, he runs into Min-kyong, an employee at the neighborhood bowling alley, and falls for her at first sight. However, his attempts to woo her go unnoticed. Meanwhile, Sang-doo, the boss of the local gang, also swoons over Min-kyong and vows to take her virginity on Christmas Eve.” Merry Christmas, everybody!
