7. "Scrooged" (Richard Donner, 1988)
Probably one of the more under-appreciated Christmas films of all time, Richard Donner’s spin on Charles Dickens was a hell of a vehicle for a late-1980s Bill Murray and a delightfully creepy alternative to Frank Capra. When I think Christmas movies, one of the first things that pops into my head is the “Put a Little Love in Your Heart” singalong over the closing credits, a nice fourth-wall-crashing moment that puts a big bow on this charmer. But I have to say, even as an adult, I’m a bit freaked out by whatever is going on under the Ghost of Christmas Future’s robe.
