    Merry Christmas, horror fans, and welcome to HO, HO, HORROR MOVIE PODCAST! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Episode 188 is our seventh annual CHRISTMAS HORROR extravaganza where our main event features a showdown between Sophia Takal’s insanely controversial Black Christmas (2019) vs the classic Black Christmas (1974) vs the previously controversial Black Xmas (2006). We’ve also got Christmas-themed mini-reviews of The Night Sitter (2018), I Trapped the Devil (2019), and Horror Movie: A Low Budget Nightmare (the last of which is a behind the scenes look at crass Christmas Horror cult classic, Red Christmas). All of that plus a sleigh full of Christmas present giveaways, including an HMP t-shirt and stocking stuffers from awesome sponsors like Fright Rags!
    Coming up next time: We’re bringing you Horror Movie Podcast’s Top 10 Horror Movies of 2019 as well as the Top 10 horror movies of the HMP community! Check out this blog post to learn how to submit your Top 10 Horror Movies of 2019 list.
