June 24, 2022 14 min read

If there is one film genre that seems to develop cult fan bases like no other, it is horror. While many people identify the cheerful phrase "he sees you while you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake" with Santa Claus, a horror enthusiast may relate the phrase with a certain big screen figure.

However, when it comes to buying a horror enthusiast a Christmas gift, some members of the family will be stumped. But don't worry, Famvibe has got a list of Christmas gifts for horror fans this year. After all, you don't want to let down the horror enthusiast in your family this holiday season, do you?

27. Zombie Arm Back Scratcher

This horror present provides you with the ideal method to scratch your back while settling in for a marathon of Halloween-themed television shows. It is, of course, far preferable to having your back scratched by a real zombie.
