It’s been a while since I’ve looked forward to a horror film, but with a cast that includes Adam Scott and Toni Collette, Krampus might be the one. If you aren’t familiar with the legend of Krampus, he’s the dark version of Santa who comes for the naughty children to kidnap them in his sack and then eat them.

Legendary Pictures’ Krampus, a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday.

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.
