The Krampus Is Here!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, unless your left stranded in a remote house, without power and hunted by a horned demon-like creature. The trailer for the greatly anticipated Christmas horror flick Krampus, hit the internet this week, and it looks amazing!
Directed by Michael Dougherty and starring a great cast including Adam Scott, Toni Collette and David Koechner, Krampus is based on the legend of a Pagan demon called Krampus, an Anti-Santa creature that punishes bad children during Christmas. The Horned anthropomorphic creature is covered in hair and has cloven hooves and horns of a goat, similar to early imterpriations of the Devil.
The film will follow young Max (Emjay Anthony), who turns his back on Christmas, thanks to his dysfunctional family.. When they accidentally unleash the wrath of Krampus, all hell breaks loose and beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own. Now, the fractured family is forced to unite if they hope to survive.
Krampus Will hit US Cinemas December 4, 2015, with UK dates following shortly after.
