The Movie: A Christmas Carol (1984)
What Is It?: This made-for-TV adaptation of Dickens’s tale of ghosts bullying an old man into liking Christmas really milks the story’s creep value with a blue-faced and bug-eyed Jacob Marley, Angela "daughter-of-Donald" Pleasance as a blood-chilling Ghost of Christmas Past, and the terrifying entrance of the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.
Why Today?: Today is Humbug Day.
