The opening sequence was shot on location in a single day at a department store in New Zealand. See more »
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 »
So what kind of godforsaken concoction are you whipping up now? You know how this fancy food clogs my pipes.
Well how about we go to your trailer for Christmas next year, hm? And after you spending weeks decorating and cooking and cleaning, I might just waddle in and start bitching and moaning about everything you worked so hard on!
Oh Sarah, you know I...
No, Aunt Dorothy, please! For your sake, just... stay the hell out of my kitchen!

The closing credits feature a Christmas song, "Carol of the Bells", which is twisted to mention the Krampus and warn of his coming. See more »
Christmas usually a time of cheerfulness and presents thanks to the jolly Santa is flipped upside down when Krampus comes to town. The events follow an obnoxious family, who are crude in their comedy, and have poor decision making. Funny man Adam Scott and horror vet Toni Collette make a unique couple but are relied upon heavily being the only serious roles written for the film. There is an appropriate blend of comedy and horror, which is seen in the absurdity of characters, evil gingerbread men, and killer toys, not so much the written dialogue. Once Krampus is seen fully his appearance is pretty cool looking like an old decrepit vile Santa. The ending was rather a letdown but overall it was a decent fun horror flick. It would be best to watch Krampus during Christmas time because it does have a great holiday feel to it, worthy of a watch for sure.
