My Top Ten Winter Horror Films

Can you feel that chill in the air?

Yes, winter is upon us so I thought it was the perfect time to share my favourite winter themed Horrors to help get us through this season of freezing cold weather.

The only thing I’m omitting from this list is Xmas films as I did a top twelve Xmas Horror list a couple of years ago (HERE), this is a list of Winter Horror films.

So here it is, my list of my top ten winter Horror films (the list is not in a favouritism order):
The Thing

A crew in Antarctica finds a neighbouring camp destroyed and its crew dead. Whatever killed them is nowhere to be found, unless it’s hidden in plain sight.

Troll Hunter
