The 10 Best ‘Christmas Carol’ Movies
Perhaps no other holiday story is as well-loved as Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. The thrilling story tells the tale of a Victorian miser named Ebenezer Scrooge. The original Grinch, Scrooge is a wealthy man in a time of need with no empathy in his heart for others. He also hates Christmas, and all it represents. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, who warns him of the fate in hell that may befall him for his life of greed. Later, Scrooge is visited by three sprits who show him his past, present, and future.
As much a ghost story as it is a tale of redemption, A Christmas Carol has captured the world’s imagination. So much so that it’s been adapted, rebooted, and re-imagined close too many times to count. But what version of A Christmas Carol should you watch this holiday season? Decider went through the vast library of Christmas Carol content and narrowed it down to 10 favorites on streaming. Some of these are classic versions of the Dickens novel that have been cherished for close to 100 years. Others are cheeky reinterpretations that somehow capture Dickens’s voice even as they play the story for laughs. Oh, and one is A Muppet Christmas Carol. (You know, the best version of A Christmas Carol.)
Here are the 10 Best Christmas Carols on streaming. (No, we did not include the Cate Blanchett/Rooney Mara movie Carol, even though it takes place during Christmas. That joke’s been done.)
