‘Krampus’ Trailer: Be Good For Goodness Sake

Posted in The Screening Room by - September 09, 2015

Krampus looks to be an interesting take on the tried and true Christmas film genre while not being full-on horror. It also has an interesting cast of well-known actors like Toni Collette and Adam Scott, which should lend some more mainstream appeal to a film about a Christmas demon. 

Legendary Pictures’ Krampus, a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday. When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.

Krampus is out December 4.
