The Raid 2 – Movie Connections

The Raid 2 Connections - Iko UwaisRama, an undercover cop, infiltrates Jakarta’s criminal underworld through Uco, the impulsive son of crime boss Bangun.

Anti-Christmas Movies

Christmas is Cancelled!
Christmas is Cancelled!

A Christmas Story. It’s A Wonderful Life. The Muppet Christmas Carol. Home Alone. There are movies infused with holiday spirit that make the sleeps until December 25th more bearable.

These are not those movies.

Here are films that use the darker aspects of Christmas to tell their tales. And we’re not talking Gremlins or Die Hard. Below we have murderous tots, Christmas Eve police brutality, Yuletide demons, and attempted suicide in front of a Bugs Bunny cartoon.

Happy Holidays everyone…
