    One more vote for Ben Affleck's Surviving Christmas........ I recently sat, aghast and open-mouthed at this travesty, not quite able to believe my ears at the script.

    Ben Affleck plays the role as a buffon, high pitched voice and bouncing around the place. Utterly unbelievable and equally slappable. It's simply AWFUL. The worst film I have ever seen, never mind the worst Chrimbo film.

    Jingle all the way is great. And not in an ironic way, I genuinely enjoy it a lot its fun.
    I watched Christmas Evil this year, on the recommendation of John Waters. He called it 'the greatest Christmas film ever made'. It's rubbish. It's not even as good as Silent Night Deadly Night, and thats not really setting a high bar.

    WHAAAAT? Santa Clause The Movie? Hell no! Oh my god, I adored that film growing up and have seen it countless times. Sure, some of the acting leaves a lot to be desired, but ultimately its a really warm tale with the best Santa in any film ever!

    I quite often agree with you Mark, and when I don't it's often about something trivial. But I'm shocked that your number one worst Christmas movie of all time would in fact be in my Top 3 Christmas movies of all time!

    Not to pull a bah humbug, as I think its normally both impolite and thoroughly pointless to disabuse people of things they've enjoyed, but any of the above defending the train-wreck live action Ron Howard / Jim Carrey The Grinch.... need, or, to use internet impolite shouting, NEED, to see the perfectly crafted animated gem that is the Dr Seuss / Chuck Jones Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
    1. It is 26 economical minutes vs. the film's baggy 104 (and not in a funny baggy trouser way).
    2. It is a collaboration between the then living Dr. Seuss and animation legend Chuck Jones, the Ron Howard film was done, literally, over Theo Geisel's dead body.
    3. Boris Karloff narrator, the magnificent Thurl Ravenscroft, singer, vs Anthony Hopkins and Jim Carrey.

    Once you've seen the original, you will discover that your estimation of the Howard/ Carrey film fiasco is three sizes too large (they only made the Michael Myers Cat In The Hat to make their Grinch look good). It is tragic that this classic is not in the regular holiday rotation on UK tv, where the film unfortunately is all too present. I'm only sorry that I'm too much of a Grinch myself to have written this in sprightly rhyming couplets.

    Of course, I'm also disappointed that Alejandro Jodorowsky's Santa Sangre is not, apparently, a Christmas film. Haven't been so let down since I found out that Donkey Punch was not a new entry in the Shrek franchise.

    To add to the festive horror:

    Santa Claus (1959): A Mexican version of the myth, in which Santa lives on a cloud in an observatory and fights the Devil - or, at least, Pitch - with the help of Merlin. Yes, that Merlin.

    Santa And The Ice Cream Bunny (1972): Santa's sleigh gets stuck on a beach in Florida, conveniently close to the Pirateworld theme park. He tells a story about Thumbelina as a film-within-a-film, as children attempt to free the sleigh. Eventually the Ice Cream Bunny (you've all heard of him, right?) turns up, somewhat myxomatotically, on a fire engine to pull Santa out of the sand.
