Someone recently asked me about my favorite holiday movie, and I realized that, although I don’t see myself as a holiday movie fan, I actually have a lot of favorites. All involve mishaps, most have romantic entanglements, and many feature angels. There wasn’t a vampire in the bunch.
Because it would be a mistake.
“The Vampire Christmas Story”
All Ralphie wants for Christmas is a bb gun. But his parents insist that he’ll shoot his eye out. When his father’s prize leg-lamp breaks the front window, vampires swarm in for their holiday feast. Ralphie’s parents run to give him his present, but, alas, the steel pellets cannot harm the ravaging fiends. Ralphie realizes all too late that he should have specified silver pellets.
“The Vampire Miracle on 34th Street”
“The Bishop’s Vampire Wife”
A reserved bishop has lost his way, getting more caught up with fundraising for a new church than with the true meaning of Christmas. A mysterious and gorgeous man appears and says that he’s come to help the bishop. He spends most of his time charming people and macking on the bishop’s bored and neglected wife.
The only one of the holiday movies that might work as a vampire story is “Elf” because the elf comes to save his father’s publishing business and then writes a bestselling novel. Bestsellers and blood-suckers? They go together like eggnog and rum.
Have yourself a very scary Christmas!
What holiday movie do you think should NOT be made with a vampire theme?
