Official Trailer for Krampus Drops

Krampus1

We’re quickly approaching the middle of September which means Halloween–which is already being celebrated in my home–is right around the corner. But the end of Halloween doesn’t mean the horrors have to stop, and filmmaker Michael Dougherty intends to keep the horrors going all the way through until the New Year. Set for a December 4, 2015 theatrical release, KRAMPUS looks to be just what the doctor ordered to get some scares into the Christmas season. KRAMPUS is written by Todd CaseyMichael Dougherty, and Zach Shields, is directed by Dougherty, and stars Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania Lavie Owen, and Krista Stadler. Check out the plot synopsis:

Legendary Pictures’ Krampus, a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday. The horror-comedy tells the story of young Max (Emjay Anthony), who turns his back on Christmas as his dysfunctional family comes together and comically clashes over the holidays.

When they accidentally unleash the wrath of Krampus—an ancient entity from European folklore—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 and his mischievous underlings are being created by the combined efforts of Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, both renowned for their epic work on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies and King Kong, among many others.

Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’re looking forward to adding a new holiday horror to your seasonal viewing list.

Stay Bloody!!!
