Hundreds of Christmas movies have been made over the years and some are plain old classics we watch annually including a number of underrated Christmas movies.
Then there are the films that fall just out of the limelight. These films don’t get the attention they deserve and we wanted to give them a shoutout. Here are five underrated Christmas movies.
The Snowman (1982)
One crisp, winter morning, a young boy wakes up to find a thick blanket of snow has covered the ground as far as the eye can see. Filled with excitement, the boy decides to build a snowman using a tangerine for his nose, coal for his buttons and eyes, and tops him off with a hat and scarf. Later that night, at the stroke of midnight, the snowman comes to life!
The young boy and the snowman embark on a magical adventure of discovery where the snowman explores the young boy’s world and in return he takes him flying to his home in the North Pole. Upon arriving at the North Pole, the two join a party as the guests of honor to a very special person. Based on Raymond Briggs book, The Snowman is a family classic for generations to enjoy.
Now, The Snowman is technically a 26-minute tv short, but we considered it a movie on this list. On top of this, we know the film is highly rated on Rotten Tomatoes, but made this list due to the limited number people who are aware of its existence.
