I am super excited about Michael Dougherty’s upcoming Christmas horror film ‘Krampus‘ and I have to say that the Krampus Cards that Legendary Pictures has just released are putting a smile on my face. Yes, we’re replacing Santa with the Krampus in this film so instead of Christmas Cards we’re getting these lovely gems.
These aren’t typical family holiday cards though so don’t expect any family photos of Allison Tolman (‘Fargo’) and Emjay Anthony (‘Chef’) who are staring as the mother and son in this feature. This one is a little more foreboding to match the type of festive nature that would fit with a visit of Krampus. While Santa may watch who is naughty and nice, let’s just say Krampus deals with the naughty kids in a way that is just a little harsher than delivering coal in their stocking.
With how huge of a fan of Doughtery’s last holiday film, ‘Trick ‘r Treat,’ this is currently at the top of my radar for horror films next year. He has already proven that he can take a holiday and put a really fun and unique spin on it so with how great Halloween was, I’m looking forward to seeing what his take on Christmas will bring.
I just kind of wish that the release date was in December.
Are you looking forward to ‘Krampus’? Do you think Doughtery has a sure fire hit on his hands or is he digging into overused territory be revisiting another holiday? Share your thoughts below!
“Based on the ancient legend of a pagan demon who punishes the wicked, Legendary Pictures’ KRAMPUS, a twisted horror comedy set during the holidays, is written and directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick ’r Treat). Co-written by Todd Casey and Zach Shields and produced by Legendary’s Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Alex Garcia, this darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul will be released by Universal Pictures.”
‘Krampus’ will be released on Wednesday, November 25, 2015
