Krampus – Official Trailer #1 – Toni Collette

krampus Krampus is basically what Americans refer to as the evil version of Father Christmas, or Saint Nicholas as they call him. Why? God knows.

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.

The film is headlined by Toni Collette and Adam Scott, also stars Allison Tolman, David Koechner, and is directed and co-written by Michael Dougherty.

In the trailer for Krampus, what starts off as an amusing comedy, goes well down the comedy/horror route and I’m looking forward to this when it’s released in the UK on December 4th.
