When you think of violent Christmas movies, chances are the first thing that springs to mind is Bruce Willis angrily shuffling through a ventilation shaft in the Nakatomi Plaza.
Die Hard is, without a shadow of a doubt, the ultimate festive flick and anyone who says otherwise needs to take a long hard look in the mirror.
However, Home Alone isn't actually that far behind

Admittedly the comedy classic has a tad less bloodshed than its explosion-laden counterpart, but it's still jam-packed full of injuries aplenty.
However, that wasn't good enough for one bored animator, who decided Kevin McCallister's week alone would benefit from a touch more gore.
Earlier this year, YouTuber BitMassive took five decidedly unbloody scenes from Christmas classics Home Alone 1 & 2 and digitally added lots (and lots) of the red stuff. It's not clear why, but there's no denying it's entertaining, and we thought that this would be the perfect time of year to bring the festive bloodbath to your attention.
The gory clips see hapless burglars Harry and Marv getting their brains sprayed all over the walls and floors of the McCallister house, as little Kevin brutalises them with a series of killer booby traps.
But animator BitMassive's handy work doesn't end with Christmas movies. In fact, the creative YouTuber has also had a pop at adding some effects to Sci-Fi/comedy classic, Back To The Future.
In the videos, Marty McFly and Doc Brown end up dead on the ground, riddled with bloody bullet holes after attempting to steal some plutonium from a bunch of Libyan terrorists.
Luckily, in the original film, Doc was wearing a bulletproof vest, but BitMassive's edit gave us a glimpse at what might have happened had he not been and suffice to say there wouldn't have been a sequel.
