Michael Dougherty’s Krampus sure opened up the floodgates for all sorts of copycats, huh? Right around the time the film hit theaters, several similarly-titled movies began popping up; there’s even a film out there titled Krampus 2, which of course doesn’t have anything to do with Dougherty’s holiday horror gem.
But a female Krampus? Well, that’s a new one!
Set for Blu-ray release in November is Mother Krampus, directed by James Klass. The film is actually based on the legend of an entirely different Christmas demon, that of Frau Perchta, a witch that comes to take children on each of the 12 days of Christmas.
Check out the first images below.
Tara MacGowran stars as the title character, alongside Claire-Marie Fox, Faye Goodwin, Tony Manders, Michelle Archer and Oliver Ebsworth.
Mother Krampus heads home on November 7.
