Most Christmas movies aren't about the Christmas story at all. Sure, they've got the trappings of the holiday -- even the ones mentioned on this list have presents, stress, mistletoe, snow, Santa Claus and/or parties. But in contrast, "Children of Men," set in a dystopian future where humanity has given up hope after 18 years of mass infertility (no more babies, no more future of civilization), is about a woman who miraculously becomes pregnant. She reveals her state to Clive Owen in a manger of sorts, to which he declares, "Jesus Christ!" And when she gives birth, the baby's cries cause a ceasefire -- at least long enough to get them out of the building. Peace on earth still has to wait another day.
A Stocking Stuffer -- 'Rare Exports' (2010)
Santa exists, but this Finnish film reveals that the man credited with giving gifts to children all around the world is more about the naughty than the nice. After being trapped in a grave for centuries, he's free, and he's on a killing/kidnapping spree. Be careful you don't make his list.
