Plot Outline:

A young boy in a dysfunctional family has to sit through yet another disappointing holiday - but this time, he's had enough. Fed up with the Christmas spirit, he turns his back on everything... only to summon Krampus, a demonic force bent on punishing non-believers. As beloved icons turn twisted and evil, the boy will have to pull his fractured family together if any are to survive the festive onslaught. -- Chris Kavan

There have been a few attempts to mix Christmas with horror, all with varying degrees of success (or not). Krampus mixes in comedy with horror and, while it's not entirely successful, it's good enough to pass the time and is certainly a nice change of pace from It's a Wonderful Life.

I know. I know. Christmas is far behind us already

And partly because I was curious how a horror Christmas movie would look like. It's something different than the annual traditional Christmas junk we see on the tube. I was a little bit disappointed about this film, because the horror level is pitifully low. It was amusing though, on some level.

Holiday Mis-Givings

'Krampus' invokes the fun 80's horror comedies that skew more towards a family audience, while not being entirely kid friendly. It strikes that perfect tone between frightening and funny, never letting one outweigh the other and coinciding nicely. That said, I was left wanting much more. I felt both areas needed more of a punch. It was almost too safe at certain times when it could've gone further. Individual fun moments are sprinkled in that utilize holiday customs in dark ways. I loved the look of the entire film - from the snowed in festivities, to the decorations, to Krampus and his many different minions, - it all felt like classic Christmas. The holiday is done justice. A majority of practical effects/costumes add to the seasonal mis-givings. I very much appreciated all thi...
