'Tis the season for holiday movies and specials. Families love to tune in to 'Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer' and 'A Christmas Story.'

But some of us need a break from this barrage of wholesomeness, and that's where Christmas horror movies come in to play.

Last month I discussed the scarcity of horror movies based on 'Thanksgiving' and discussed the 'Halloween' franchise in October.

But the glut of holiday horror movies seem to revolve around Christmas.

But quality doesn't equal quantity; my initial goal was to make a list of the 10 best X-mas horror films, but there just aren't that many. But there are some 'so bad they're hilarious' takes on the genre that horror fans can get a kick out of.

With this in mind, here's a list of 10 notable yuletide horror flicks, starting from the best-worst, and ending at a truly great (yet small) sub-set of movies.
