The first trailer for Krampus has hit the web, the follow up to Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat, and it looks like a whole lot of fun. Krampus looks to be a the a new homage to the late 80’s Christmas Horror Slashers while still maintaining a sense of humor that made Trick ‘r Treat such a cult classic in the home video market. Yet I’m still wondering what happened to the Trick ‘r Treat sequel that was announced a couple years back.
Krampus releases on December 4
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.
