Six alternative Christmas films

21 December 2012 7:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Get a different angle on the holiday season, with these six flicks

Santa Claus (1959)

Don't be fooled by the utilitarian title: Santa Claus is less a biopic of the jelly-bellied gift-giver than a warped Christmas fever dream in which he happens to play a supporting role. The film's real star is Lucifer, who – angered by society's unshakeable devotion to Saint Nick – sends forth a horned demon to turn the children of Earth against him. Santa, hard at work in his orbiting space castle (don't ask) is powerless to help as the campy incubus schemes to corrupt virtuous little boys and girls.

Holiday In Handcuffs (2007)

Waitress Trudie takes a decidedly extreme course of action when faced with another Christmas without a boyfriend. Brandishing an antique shotgun, she kidnaps handsome stranger David and whisks him back »

'Home Alone 3,' Lost In Disney World: A Story I Pitched To John Hughes When I Was Eight

6 December 2012 12:04 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In 1994, when I was eight years old, I became obsessed with “Home Alone.” At the time, I owned both “Home Alone” and “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” on VHS, along with two “Home Alone” posters, a “Home Alone” video game and even the novelization of “Home Alone” by Todd Strasser. I have no explanation for my fandom, other than the fact that I saw the film's protagonist, Kevin McCalister, as some type of hero, one who was forced to defend his house from two burglars on Christmas. Soon enough, I found myself writing a letter to the film's writer/producer John Hughes. Several months earlier, I had created a new chapter in the “Home Alone” series, and was now wondering whether Mr. Hughes would be willing to option it. At that point, my only knowledge of the filmmaker was that he was somehow involved with creating “Home Alone, »

Home Alone 5 in the Works

15 March 2012 11:16 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

ABC Family has announced that production has begun on the fifth installment in the "Home Alone" franchise. The new movie stars Malcolm McDowell, Edward Asner, Debi Mazar, Eddie Steeples and Christian Martyn. It is set to premiere as part of network's annual "25 Days of Christmas." In "Home Alone 5: Alone in the Dark," 8-year-old Finn (Martyn) is terrified to learn his family is relocating from sunny California to Maine, and the scariest house he has ever seen. Convinced that his new house is haunted, Finn sets up a series of elaborate traps to catch the "ghost" in action. Left home alone with his sister (Jodelle Ferland) while their parents are stranded across town, Finn's traps catch a new target - a group of thieves (McDowell, Mazar, Steeples) who have targeted Finn's house. The new movie is directed by Peter Hewitt (Garfield, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey). The fourth film, "Home Alone 4 »

Sequels: 'Home Alone 5,' 'The Cat in the Hat' Gets Animated and 'Jurassic Park' Returns in 3D

15 March 2012 3:58 PM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

For those who were brave enough to endure Home Alone 4, you might have thought that was the end of the franchise. Well, apparently not as ABC Family is moving forward with Home Alone 5. The fifth installment in the franchise will completely scrap Kevin McAllister from the franchise and instead rely on Finn, an eight-year-old played by Christian Martin. From there, the story pretty much plays out like the previous four films. Finn will be trapped in an old, creepy house with his sister while their parents are marooned on the opposite side of town. A character twist has been added in which entails Finn believing in ghosts and setting trap to catch said haunts in his house. So when thieves come around, the traps are already set.   Home Alone 5 is set to air on ABC Family next...

Home Alone 5 is Happening

15 March 2012 3:05 PM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

It's the gift that just keeps on giving! Some 22 years after the original Home Alone hit theatres and turned Macaulay Culkin into a superstar, production on the fifth installment in the Home Alone series is now underway, targeting a holiday 2012 release. Culkin, of course, dropped out of the franchise after the immediate follow-up, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, with Home Alone 3 starring some other kid (but still being written by John Hughes, believe it or not). Many people probably aren't even aware that there was a Home Alone 4, but it was made for TV and released back in 2002. Now the fifth movie will follow the same path; it is scheduled to premiere on ABC Family as part of their "25 Days of Christmas" programming event. Hey, at least it's not a remake, right? According to Deadline, Home Alone 5 will star Malcolm McDowell, Debi Mazar, Edward Asner, Eddie Steeples, »
