A Chiller TV Christmas guarantees frights

When you work at a horror network, you tend to get into the holiday mood a little differently.

For instance, instead of subjecting viewers to stories of misfit toys and weather misers, Chiller TV is ushering in the week before Christmas on Dec. 17, beginning at 8 p.m., with a top-13 countdown of the "Decade's Scariest Movie Moments."

The counting down will be down by pop culture and horror movie experts. Additionally, participants include Kyle Massey (Dancing With The Stars finalist), renowned special makeup effects supervisor Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead), comedians Dan Gurewitch & David Young (, actress Betsy Russell (the Saw anthology), writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), actor Tony Todd (Final Destination) and horror film director Lucky McKee (May), among others.

Also, the Chiller 13's "most memorably spine-tingling moments" will be followed up on Dec. 31 with a New Year's Eve zombie marathon. So while you're wishing you're undead after either eating too much pie or arguing politics with family, you can watch classics The Evil Dead with envy for the victims.

Watch the teaser for Chiller 13 below.
