We know everyone is trying to shake off their Halloween hangovers, but AMC Networks has just the cure! As we ease into November, we have the holiday season to look forward to, and that’s where AMC and AMC+’s ‘Best Christmas Ever’ event comes in.

Sure, the holidays can be merry and jolly, but they can also be horrifying, a fact that AMC knows all too well. Here’s what horror fans have to look forward to this Christmas:

The Sacrifice Game  makes its debut December 8 on both Shudder and AMC+. Samantha and Clara are two boarding school students who aren’t able to go home and be with their families during the holidays. Things get even worse when a menacing group shows up at their school at Christmas. Written by Jenn Wexler (The Ranger, Darling) and Sean Redlitz, The Sacrifice Game is new holiday horror to add to your list.

Joe Bob’s Creepy Christmas will premiere live on Shudder TV and AMC+ TV on December 15. Join Joe Bob Briggs, Darcy the Mail Girl and the rest of The Last Drive-In gang for a double feature of drive-in horror fun. As they have for the past few years, the crew will be auctioning items / experiences and donating the money to some very worth causes. The special will be available to stream on demand beginning December 17.

Silent Night is already available to watch on AMC+, here is their synopsis:

"“Parents Nell and Simon have invited their closest friends to join their family for Christmas dinner at their idyllic home in the English countryside. As the group comes together, it feels like old times – but behind all of the laughter and merriment, something is not quite right. The world outside is facing impending doom, and no amount of gifts, games or Prosecco can make mankind’s imminent destruction go away. Surviving the holidays just got a lot more complicated.”"

Also available now on Shudder and AMC+ is The Apology, which stars Anna Gunn, Janeane Garofalo and Linus Roache. Darlene is a recovering alcoholic who is hosting the family Christmas gathering 20 years after her daughter disappeared. Darlene’s best friend Gretchen is there for support, but things take a dark turn when Darlene’s ex-brother-in-law Jack shows up. As the group is trapped in the house thanks to a severe storm, things take a very un-merry turn.
