Christmas has provided filmmakers with lots of inspiration over the years. We have our classic Christmas specials and films like It’s A Wonderful Life, and our terrible attempts like Christmas With The Kranks. But there’s another type of Christmas movie out there; films that are just too weird to be bad. They may fall short of genius, but there is a sublime quality to them, a certain something that just needs to be witnessed. Preferably while tanked.

Well, over the last four days, I did some heavy research on the subject, and came up with the following six films.

The Magic Christmas Tree

As you may have gleaned from the title, the family motion picture The Magic Christmas Tree is about a Christmas tree that talks. And since no Christmas family motion picture would be complete without a happy witch, greedy giant, or runaway lawnmower, they have those too. It also features a thrilling scene where Santa Claus is captured. You’ll want to see that!

Elves

It’s really your classic holiday tale. A girl discovers she’s the focus of an evil Nazi experiment that involves wicked elves and the selective breeding of a race of super-soldiers. One thing leads to another, and she and her friends are locked in the mall with a killer elf. Only Dan Haggerty’s disgraced alcoholic detective turned Mall Santa can put the pieces together and save the day.

Jim Carrey in ‘A Christmas Carol’ Clip http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jim-carrey-in-a-christmas-carol-clip/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jim-carrey-in-a-christmas-carol-clip/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 A new clip from Robert Zemeckis's A Christmas Carol has crash landed like your embarrassment of an uncle after a few too many eggnog cocktails. That's a compliment. To the movie. Your uncle's a mess.If you're not familiar with the Dickens classic, then don't watch, because for some reason the studio decided to put the ending online before the movie hits theaters. If you are familiar with it, then I encourage you to watch, if only to see how far Zemeckis's animated filmmaking has come since Polar Express, in which all the characters looked like they hailed from the Village of the Damned. But this time around, Scrooge and company actually seem like they have soul. Not James Brown level, or even on the level of your fat uncle when he busts out the soundtrack to The Commitments and tries to sing along, which only ends up getting the cats all hot and bothered. But it's a step in the right direction.
