Christmas themed horror movies are notoriously awful. Black Christmas, Jack Frost, and Santa’s Slay being some of the most notable and laughable attempts at the holiday themed horror. Most of which came from the massive explosion in the 1980s during the slasher genre craze, where ever single holiday seemed to get the scary movie treatment. Yes, that’s as cringe worthy as it sounds. While there have been a few that bred a cult following, Silent Night, Deadly Night in particular, one could normally considering the concept of a Christmas themed horror movie a joke. Yet, I cannot help but be intrigued by Krampus‘ premise. Having an “Anti-Saint Nick” is an interesting premise, especially with it seeming to ditch the whole evil Santa vibe. What really stood out to for this film was actually the cast itself, as it’s not filled with your typical horror actors. Adam Scott (Parks and Recreations), Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine), and David Koechner (Anchorman) headline this Krampus, which almost makes one think this will be a bit of a dark comedy as well. Though you should really check out the trailer below before we continue on.
