Merry Christmas, friends! This week we're taking a break from watching and yelling about holiday movies so that we can kick up our feet, have a few drinks, and play some holiday games. What holiday games, you might ask? Well, let's just say we surprised ol' Bradford with a game some might consider a crime against humanity...

It's December, which means it's time to take a break from Christmas movies. Instead, we're celebrating July at Christmas, and what better expression of July than Roland Emmerich's 1996 action epic Independence Day! Also, fun fact: We recorded this episode literally the day before the trailer for the sequel dropped. Fortuitous timing, but that means we couldn't break it down in all sorts of stupid ways. C'est la vie.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Joe and Jon take a moment to give thanks that all movies aren't as inexplicably terrible as the 1989 Nazi-horror movie Elves

Just because Halloween is over doesn't mean the Horrordays can't continue! This week we're taking one last dip into the spooks and scares of the season with Jack Frost. No, not the one where Michael Keaton comes back to life as a snowman who hugs kids. The one where a serial killer comes back to life as a snowman who kills kids. And adults. This snowman does not discriminate.

It's Home for the Horrordays here on Christmas Creeps, and we're celebrating all the holiday spooks and scares with a musical about the most popular guy in town and the job that he hates! It's Henry Selick's Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas!

October is the season for all things spooky and monstrous, and for us that can only mean one thing: GREMLINS! Join us on a ridiculous 70-minute ride through Joe Dante's 1984 classic about little green maniacs tearing up Ronald Reagan's America.

It's Labor Day, which means we've rounded the corner and officially entered the season of actual Christmas Creep. And what better way to celebrate the unofficial start of fall than with a cozy little film about hillbilly otters and their hootjug holiday?

This week, the Creeps attempt to wrestle some sense out of Peewee Herman's 1988 Christmas special, resulting in one of our least coherent episodes to date. I'm sorry, Santa. If you think this episode is really some dumb bad nonsense, why not email us and tell Johnny 5 all about it?

This week we're embarking on a ridiculous mission to watch the entire Home Alone series backwards, starting with 2013's made-for-TV Home Alone 5: The Holiday Heist. A kid who's not Kevin McCallister defends a home that's not in Chicago, IL from burglars (and Malcolm McDowell) who aren't trying to steal everything in the house. It goes about as well as you'd expect.

On this week's episode, the Creeps take a rocketship to the dopiest sci-fi Christmas movie ever made: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians! Not gonna lie, this episode starts running out of steam once we realize there really isn't a whole lot worth discussing about this movie. It's that transparent and terrible. But the conversation careens into some weird topics, so gird your loins and stick it out! No, not like that, you weirdos!

This week, the Creeps discuss the Christmas movie that set the template for all other movies in which a complete idiot rescues a holiday from the clutches of despair. That's right, Ernest saved Christmas before it was cool. Deal with it.

It's Birthday Boy's Choice this week as we celebrate Johnny-5's birthday by watching and discussing the granddaddy of all holiday heist movies starring Bruce Willis. That's right, we're watching Hudson Hawk, but for some reason the conversation immediately reverted back to Die Hard. Go figure.

A special guest drops by for this week's episode, in which we honor the memory of Robin Williams by watching and discussing one of his last feature films: A Merry Friggin' Christmas. Hold on tight, folks, it's about to get real up in this 'cast.

To take the edge off the cloying feelgoodery of Christmas Shoes, this week we're talking about Danny Boyle's Millions, a film that also features a precocious kid, dead parents, God, Jesus, Christmas, and all the pizza money can buy.

This week we dig way down to the bottom of the barrel and find a filthy pair of Christmas Shoes. Yup, that's right. We actually made ourselves watch the Rob Lowwe-starring, made-for-CBS TV movie based on the most feel-bad holiday song of all time: CHRISTMAS SHOES.
