Who would you call to battle a rising tide of the undead? The police? The army? Simon Pegg? If none of them were available, you might have to turn to scouts, as is the case with Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse, which is aping Drew Struzan with its new poster. The movie finds three scouts, lifelong friends, who are trying to attend the party marked as the social event of the year. But instead of having fun, they must team up with a tough cocktail waitress to try and save their town from a zombie invasion. Can these unlikely heroes make it through the undead apocalypse? They’ll need all their scouting skills, but we’re sure success would lead to the best badge ever created. Aiming at a largely low-fi approach to the effects to give it that extra kick of nostalgia (with a few digital tricks added »

Sorry that it’s been a while, dear readers. A combination of computer trouble and being busy with other things has kept me away for the last couple weeks. But the column is finally back, and this week’s Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at the upcoming horror-comedy Krampus.
Premise: When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know that 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.
My take: Krampus is a horned, humanoid creature from German-speaking Alpine folklore that punishes naughty children during the Christmas season, »

Legendary's bringing festive frights to this year's ScareHouse in Pittsburgh. This fall, the renowned haunted house will feature attractions based on Michael Dougherty's Trick ’r Treat and the director's upcoming holiday horror film, Krampus.
Press Release: Pittsburgh, Pa (September 15, 2015) – The fear experts from “One of America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions” (Travel Channel) have joined forces with Legendary to create two all-new attractions based on the twisted imagination of Michael Dougherty, the writer/director of the films Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus.
Krampus will be released on December 4, 2015, by Universal Pictures. This darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul is co-written and directed by Michael Dougherty and supported by the Oscar®-winning creature-effects wizardry of Weta Workshop. Krampus features a stellar cast that includes Adam Scott (“Parks and Recreation”), Academy Award® nominee Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine), Golden Globe nominee Allison Tolman (“Fargo”), and David Koechner (Anchorman series).
The legend of Krampus is awoken! »

Today we have the trailer for the upcoming Christmas horror movie "Krampus," starring Adam Scott, Toni Collette, Allison Tolman, David Koechner and Emjay Anthony. Check it out below. Plot: When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (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. The new movie is directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick 'r Treat) and is set to hit theaters on December 4th. Trailer: »
There are a variety of theories that lead to the creation of a film like Krampus. Depending on your specific demographic, either none of them matter, or none of them help create a lot of interest.
On the one hand, the bonkers marketing juggernaut that is the Christmas season, and the overabundance of sickeningly sweet holiday films that are churned out every year, occasionally leads to some form of backlash enterprise. The ’80s hit us with Silent Night, Deadly Night, and it seems that every few years there is a resurgence in the popularity of thumbing your nose at the holiday season.
On the other hand, there is perhaps something to be said for what you might call a “lark film.” Like everyone else, actors and directors want to take a break once in a while, and do something that’s just plain screwy. Fair enough.
On the third hand, »

A film that continues to fly under too many people's radar is Trick 'r Treat, an excellent mix of horror and comedy that didn't see the inside of a cinema. It's well, well worth seeking out the DVD of.
Michael Dougherty was behind Trick 'r Treat, and he's got a new project heading our way this Yuletide. Entitled Krampus, it's the story of a boy who rejects Christmas, after becoming disillusioned with his own family. But his non-belief in festivities attracts the attention of the Krampus. And the Krampus isn't a fan of non-believers.
The movie stars Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner and Alison Tolman. It's scheduled for release in Us and UK cinemas on December 4th. Here, then, is the trailer and official synopsis. Trailer first...
And the synopsis. »
I can remember vividly hating Christmas some years. The fights between family. The idiot gift exachange. In fact, there are a ton of reasons to dislike Christmas. However, when Christmas comes around, I’m always filled with cheer, because otherwise Krampus will be near. So the idea of a horror film based on one of the coolest holiday myths of all time is really inviting.
To that end, we’ve been waiting so long for a trailer I thought my head might fall off. Well the wait is over. Co-Production Studios Universal and Legendary Studios have finally released the trailer for what certainly is to become this season’s Christmas classic, “Krampus.”
Horror fans should be excited for this movie, because Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, who created the effects of such great films as “The Lord of the Rings,” “The Hobbit,” 2014’s “Godzilla,” and one of this year’s »

Think your family’s holiday get togethers are miserable? Wait until you watch the first trailer for “Krampus” — a Christmas-themed horror comedy from Michael Dougherty, the writer and director of “Trick ‘r Treat.” The Dec. 4 release from Legendary Pictures and Universal focuses on a family targeted by a demon accidentally summoned by a young boy. Adam Scott, Toni Collette and David Koechner star as the adults stuck in the comical, but scary situation as a monster an old woman in the trailer describes as “the shadow of St. Nicholas” wreaks havoc.

Christmas is a time for spreading holiday cheer and giving to your fellow man - unless you're in the new movie Krampus, and you're busy dodging a terrifying creature who wants to murder you. The horror film, starring Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, and Allison Tolman (Fargo), puts a new spin on an old legend. When a young boy accidentally summons the monster, his family has to stick together to survive the night. It's enough to make you want to forgo Christmas entirely. The movie will be out on Dec. 4, just in time to terrorize you for the holidays. »
Drawing from European folklore, Krampus looks set to redefine Christmas. The first trailer establishes a typical holiday gathering of family and friends, 12 people locked in a house in the dead of winter. But this year, St. Nick is nowhere to be seen. Instead, the mythological creature Krampus has come to life and seeks to establish a new, nasty, possibly annual event of mayhem. Coming from Michael Dougherty, who gave Halloween stories a fresh spin in Trick 'r Treat, I'm hoping for something delightfully weird. The cast is a good indicator, with Adam Scott, Toni Colette, Allison Tolman (who broke out in TV's Fargo), and David Koechner on board. Take a look at the trailer below and let me know if I'm nuts for my positive anticipation on...
