Krampus Header Image

The first images from Krampus, the Christmas themed horror movie from the writer and director of the great Halloween anthology classic Trick ‘r Treat, Michael Dougherty, have been released online for all to enjoy.

The movie is based on old folklore, which is much more well-known in European culture and tells of misbehaving children being punished by a horned demon-like creature known as Krampus as opposed to Santa just dropping some coal in their stocking like we in the States are used to. It follows a young boy in a dysfunctional family who decides to turn his back on Christmas, leading to the arrival of the ancient being.

You can read more about the movie and check out the first official images from the movie below.

SYNOPSIS:

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.

If you missed it you can also see a poster for the movie right here, as well as a newer one below.

Krampus also stars Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Stefania Lavie Owen, and Krista Stadler, and is directed and written by Dougherty, with Zach Shields and Todd Casey co-writing the script. The movie is set to be released in theaters on December 4th of this year.
