Storyline

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.

Goofs

While out searching for Beth, Tom helps out Howard by shooting the thing that attacks Howard 3 times with his sixshooter. Back in the house, Tom asks Howard about ammo. All Howard has left are shotgun shells. Later on, Tom uses the sixshooter again and fires 6 times. As there was no additional ammo left for this gun, he could have only fired 3 more times.

Good Film
2 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Three days before Christmas, a suburban family gets together to celebrate the holidays.

One child named Max wants to continue the family's Christmas traditions, but tensions between members of the family keep everyone from having a good time and the family lose their Christmas spirit, especially Max, who rips up his letter to Santa and throws it to the wind after his cousins read it out at the dinner table Shortly afterwards, a severe blizzard appears and cuts out power in the entire town and Christmas will never be the same.

Now Despite it's Christmas Background this film is anything but cherry. In fact this film is one of the best main stream horror films produced in quit some time.

In this film we get a cross between "Night of the Living Dead" and "Gremlins". If your fans of those films then you will enjoy this movie.

If you have small children please do not let them watch this.
