Christmas Comes Early as First Trailer for Krampus Ends up in Our Stockings!


Hey everyone, I know this is somewhat old news from a couple days back, and I know that I have been busy recently (currently working on a screenplay I was hired to write, but more on that later), but I just want you all to know how insane Krampus is!

So, many fantasy television series have touched on Krampus before (Grimm comes to mind), but I’m not aware of a film that has ever been made on the subject. For those of you who do not know much about this legend, Krampus is seen as a more horrific parallel to Santa.

Writer/Director Michael Dougherty (who many should know from his cult hit Trick ‘r Treat) has just dropped the first trailer for his horror/comedy depicting a family trying to defend their Christmas cheer from the horrific beastly Krampus. I saw the trailer twice, and I just don’t know how to feel. On one hand, I like the tone of the trailer, but on the other hand, I question if the film can hold out that tone for the length of a feature film.

So tell me, fandom, what are your thoughts on the Krampus trailer? What do you like? Will you be in the theater seat this Christmas? Let me know!
