WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Young Max (Anthony) becomes disillusioned with Christmas when his dysfunctional family clashes with one another during the celebrations. Unfortunately, Max’s lack of festive spirit summons a deadly being known as Krampus, who punishes non-believers through his overwhelming force of evil. The fractured family must now put aside their differences and defeat Krampus’ army of monstrous holiday icons if they are to survive the Silent Night ahead of them…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

A horror-comedy that takes no prisoners when it comes to holiday cynics, Krampus is one of the first major films to suggest you get with the Christmas spirit or else suffer the horrific consequences.
