3 Lesser Known Holiday Films

We all know Its a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, Miracle on 34th Street, and Debbie Does the North Pole. These films are staples of the holiday season. But there are a few others I'd like to give a holiday shout out to that I think you may really enjoy.

1) The Hebrew Hammer - Who is the Hebrew Hammer? He's Philip Marlowe, Han Solo, and Shaft all rolled into one. He's a bad-ass Heb on a mission - Save Hanukkah.

Currently streaming on Netflix - The Hebrew Hammer

2) Rare Exports - A Christmas Tale. This movie is a gift from Finland, magical, scary, and amazing. You never really know where this one is going, but when it gets there it's a strange visual rush that is not easily forgotten.

Also streaming on Netflix - Rare Exports - A Christmas Tale

3) [REC] 3 Genesis - If you are familiar with the [REC] films from Spain, and their American half-ass remakes, you know that we are dealing with Zombies. [REC] 3 is basically Zombies at a Wedding. What does this have to do with the holidays? Nothing, sorry. But its a wedding, and that's a very celebratory and festive time. So kind of holiday-ish. And there is lots of Red in it. Spoiler Alert: The Best Man does not make it. That's because the best man turns out to be a woman. In a wedding dress. With a chainsaw! 

Please enjoy the holidays, Happy Festiveus, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanuka, Joyous Kwanzaa, and have a peaceful New Year.
Enjoy the Wreaths
