– After a dysfunctional family (like most families) clashes together during a family Christmas celebration and ruins the Christmas spirit for young Max; Krampus, the anti-Santa Claus complete with horns and hooves, arrives to punish those who don’t believe in Christmas and in Santa. Krampus uses himself and other holiday icons to attack the family and the family must fight together to be able to survive. The Krampus looks like it wasn’t screened for critics at all (or at least until last-minute) which is never a good sign. Plus it’s described as a horror comedy but almost every trailer shows never shows any of the comedy.
– Stars Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania LaVie Owen, Krista Stadler, and Gavin Norton. Directed by Michael Dougherty. Rated PG-13.
