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.

Trivia

In a cut scene, the fathers hear a blizzard warning for the Central Ohio area that covers "Franklin County, Delaware County, Ramona Falls, and Warren Valley." While Franklin and Delaware Counties are real (and place the film somewhere in or near the greater Columbus metro), Ramona Falls is really in Oregon, not Ohio. Warren Valley is the fictional town where Michael Dougherty's Trick 'r Treat took place. See more »

Goofs

In Mucho Mart, just as the camera starts to close in through the curtain in the back of the store where the play was being held. A customer with at least a 43 inch TV box is walking from left of the screen to the right of the screen. The box was obviously empty to have been able to be held simply by the underarm as the person is doing. See more »

Meeehhhh....

Greetings from Lithuania.

"Krampus" (2015) is sometimes kinda pretty creepy, sometimes a little scary, sometimes a little funny movie that eventually gets boring by trying to be different and by doing that, it quickly becomes very average. It is not a bad movie by any means, but it's just so ... average. There is nothing in it that you would like to return for a second viewing and nothing that you would be glued to your screen during first viewing.

Overall, "Krampus" tries to be scary and kinda original Cristmas movie, and sometimes it succeeds, but mostly it doesn't by the end i didn't care what will happen to one or another two dimensional character. It is not a bad movie, but it's a quickly forgettable one.
