Oh, baby, it's getting colder outside.
The holiday season is full of movies celebrating Christmas (and we'll get to those soon). But before we reach the peak of that season, it's time to revisit films about Hanukkah or winter or both.
Here are five of our favorite movies available to rent or stream that are perfect to watch this time of year, whether you're in the mood for a raunchy animated musical, a kid-friendly option or even vampires.
If you love Adam Sandler's The Hanukkah Song: Eight Crazy Nights
There aren't that many Hanukkah movies out there, but Adam Sandler does his best to fill the void with this wild and raunchy comedy. It may look like other animated holiday TV specials, but there's plenty of cursing, scatological humor and drinking to make it unsafe for family gatherings.
Stream it on Cinemax.
If you just can't let it go: Frozen
The snow glows white on the mountain tonight, or, probably more accurately, on the cars parked on the street. But still, you don't really need an excuse to revisit the now-classic Disney musical. There is pretty snow, great songs and all the humor and heart you remember.
If you love a more evil ice queen: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
Tilda Swinton has perhaps never done more in a role than she does as the White Witch in this adaptation of C.S. Lewis' novel. She's a perfect villain for the classic story of four young siblings who discover a magical world inside a plain old wardrobe.
Stream it on HBO Go/Now.
If you want an adorable documentary: March of the Penguins
Sure, you can see some tap-dancing penguins in the Happy Feet animated series, but nothing quite beats this blockbuster documentary, which stole our hearts in 2005.
Stream it on Hulu.
If you like frozen horror: 30 Days of Night
Winter isn't just for cute penguins and singing princesses. It's also pretty dangerous, as seen in this horror film starring Josh Hartnett about a town in Alaska where there's a month of darkness every winter. And when there's darkness, the vampires come.
