Alain’s Top 5: Christmas Movies

by Alain Elliott

Although horror is my favourite film genre, it is closely followed by Christmas movies. I love them and will watch almost any type of movie if it’s festive themed – rom-com (yes really!), horror, comedy, sci-fi (there’s not enough of those), animated, anything you can think of! So for Nerdly I thought I’d write up […]

Stars: Christopher Lee Page, Caitlin Crommett, Erik Kammerland, Thomas Hedengran | Written by Erik Kammerland | Directed by Johan Bodell There are many many horror movies that centre around a cabin in the woods and unsurprisingly, The Cabin is another that can be added to that list.
