Top 10 Christmas Movie Villains

Happy new year! Okay I did anticipate this post would be out in December but I got waylaid eating copious amounts of cheese whilst watching On the Buses. Honestly the truth and why would I lie? Really?

Anyway whilst the tree is still up (which it is, just) and there’s five jars of part-eaten chutneys in the fridge, it’s still Christmas. I’m literally drinking a mulled wine right now.

Top 10 Christmas Movie Villains

10. The Grinch

A little obvious perhaps but he literally stole Christmas.

9. The old boss in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation who doesn’t want to pay Chevy Chase his bonus 


What’s scarier than being tied up and gagged by Randy Quaid? NOTHING.

8. The shark in Jaws: The Revenge

It has Christmas trees. It’s a Christmas movie.

7. Gremlins


“No matter how much he cries, or how much he begs – never feed him after midnight!”

6. Mr Poppy in Nativity

I know that technically the real villain in Nativity is the leader of the rival school but Mr Poppy is so deranged and mental and totally irresponsible and SO LOUD that I had to include him.

5. Bill Murray in Scrooged


Bill Murray doing what he does best – being an arrogant, rude bastard.

4. The Evil Bitch in Love Actually

More like a punch in the mouth love. Leave him alone you evil bitch!

3. Gary Busey in Lethal Weapon as ‘Mr Joshua’



2. Hans Gruber

Well, it had to be so didn’t it.

1. Harry and Marv – The Wet Bandits

Undoubtedly the best Christmas villains ever!!!!!! Though not the ‘best villains’ ever, I mean they let themselves get taken by ONE eight year old kid.

And his brother’s pet tarantula.

    Nice idea for a list, though I’d have to swap 1 and 2 for sure. Hope you had an awesome Christmas and a great 2020 ahead.

    I love this list – especially the Assistant in “Love Actually” – as you can tell at the end of the film, she still has her hooks in him it seems, and that’s a big mistake on his part! I would add the evil Mr. Potter from “It’s A Wonderful Life” – although I admit that Pottersville looks like a party town!

  7. The evil slut and the Hans Gruber are just pure evil and Ironically in the same movie together.

    I would go with ‘Bad Santa’, but I suppose he isn’t villainous enough!
    Got any Brie left? Only I still have to shift a lump as big as a pot lid. I could post it… 🙂
    As ever, Pete. XXX
