Storyline

Based on the German Urban Legend of Frau Perchta, the Christmas Witch, who takes a child each night over the 12 days of Christmas. For the 12 days before the Christmas of 1921, children went missing near the local towns woods. A traumatized girl was found, but her mind had gone - she later died of her horrific injuries. Just before the Christmas of 1992, a further five children disappeared again. Their bodies were found in the same woods. Angry and seeking vengeance, the locals hung a woman they believed to be the killer. But before dying, she cursed the town that one day the Christmas Witch, Frau Perchta, would come for them to avenge her death. 25 years later, the story has become little more than a local myth. But as children start to go missing again, everyone begins to wonder if the tales of a curse might be true. This Christmas it's not only the children that are in danger, it's the adults too.

Trivia

Perchta or Berchta (English: Bertha), also commonly known as Percht and other variations, was once known as a goddess in Alpine paganism in the Upper German and Austrian regions of the Alps. Her name may mean "the bright one" (Old High German beraht, bereht, from Proto-Germanic *brehtaz) and is probably related to the name Berchtentag, meaning the feast of the Epiphany. Eugen Mogk provides an alternative etymology, attributing the origin of the name Perchta to the Old High German verb pergan, meaning "hidden" or "covered". Perchta is often identified as stemming from the same Germanic goddess as Holda and other female figures of German folklore (see Frija-Frigg). According to Jacob Grimm and Lotte Motz, Perchta is Holda's southern cousin or equivalent, as they both share the role of "guardian of the beasts" and appear during the Twelve Days of Christmas, when they oversee spinning. Grimm says Perchta or Berchta was known "precisely in those Upper German regions where Holda leaves off, in Swabia, in Alsace, in Switzerland, in Bavaria and Austria." See more »

Why was this ever made?
24 August 2018 | by qthowardSee all my reviews

I have seen some bad movies but this is the worst in my opinion. I usually can tell a bad movie within 5 min of watch time; sometimes even less. I gave this movie a chance because I liked krampus. I actually liked two krampus movies and the third one was just ok. But this, was shyt on a stick ,pretending to be a corndog. Disappointment all around. The story, the actors, the acting, the blood and gore, the special effects, the climax, the ending. I don't know how this movie is on hulu for ppl to watch. I feel like i should be refunded a year of hulu subscription fees because I was able to watched this. Hulu should have standards. Only watch this movie if you want to see the worst movie made thus far. I feel like actual middle school kids could make a better movie.
