Interwoven stories that take place on Christmas Eve, as told by one festive radio host: A family brings home more than a Christmas tree, a student documentary becomes a living nightmare, a Christmas spirit terrorizes, Santa slays evil.

A young woman grieving the loss of her mother, a famous scream queen from the 1980s, finds herself pulled into the world of her mom's most famous movie. Reunited, the women must fight off the film's maniacal killer.
When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) gets disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Meanwhile, this lack of festive spirit unleashes 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 one another if they hope to survive.
Michael Dougherty describes the Krampus in this film as Santa Claus's shadow: "He's not the unstoppable monster that kicks down your door and rampages and grabs you. There's something darkly playful about him. He's having a good time doing what he does, and he enjoys the cat-and-mouse aspect of it." See more »
Tom's plan to use the snow plow is flawed. It has been sitting with its lights on for over 24 hours by the time they get to it. The battery would of been dead by then. See more »
You're not thinking of going after that snowplow alone, are you?

I really Enjoyed the Movie so sorry if i don't really have much negative to say.
-Scary scenes are actually scary. (suspence build up pretty well, i liked seeing the "Monster" which I usually dislike in other Horror Movies)
-Krampus is pretty accurate. (And Scary)
-Additions to the old myth are either working well or are too funny to not include.
-Brings the world closer to the real old Christmas we "enjoy" in central Europe.
-Funny half of the movie working well.
-Scary half works perfectly fine.
-Overall pretty good contrast to the rest of the commercial holiday.
-Maybe a little slow on the start.
-Maybe overall a bit too harsh for some viewers. (but no blood or overuse of the F Word, but still pretty scary but the closer the end the more serious it gets with less comedy)
The cinema was pretty much enjoying it some people hated it i guess. But i felt it was quite good and had a good evening.
I would say overall if i wanted to watch Krampus in the very beginning, which i didn't intend to, i would be happy with the actual Movie.
It Keeps its Promises and does very well what it intends to do. Don't expect something like Tucker and Dale, Shawn of the Dead or Braindead more a mix of Jeepers Kreepers and and regular Christmas Comedy, but does this much better. (i disliked jeepers creepers and all this Christmas comedy but liked this)
