Yesterday, the first images were released from Legendary Pictures’ Krampus, in theaters December 4th, a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday.
We now have the official U.S. trailer in HD for Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty’s latest holiday offering that suggests you don’t want to end up on “his” list. The best thing about the footage is that it clearly doesn’t take itself too serious, and is out to have a good time. And what better a gift for us horror fans than a genre film releasing during the holidays? There’s no way we’re getting a stocking filled with coal this year…
In Krampus, “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.”
Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania Lavie Owen with Krista Stadler star in Krampus.
