The app continues its fifth day of gift-giving with one of two free movies. Which title you get depends on where in the world you live.

iPhone and iPad users able to tap into Apple's 12 Days of Gifts app can score a free film as Monday's treat.

Through the app, Apple has been doling out free downloads since December 26 and will continue playing virtual Santa until January 6. The gifts vary based on your country.

People in the US or Canada can download "Hugo," a 2011 film from renowned director Martin Scorsese. Folks outside the US and Canada instead get "Home Alone," the 1990 Christmas comedy directed by Chris Columbus and starring Macaulay Culkin.

The 12 Days app is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. However, it requires iOS 7.0 or higher. That means those of you with older iOS devices stuck on version 6.x are out in the cold this holiday season.
