I don’t know about you, but I would quite happily watch Krampus if it was put on in front of me. As a mythological figure, Krampus has fascinated me for a good long while, so it was to my relief when I found myself relatively impressed by the film stills that I pulled from Google Images. I also felt a sinister little smile creeping across my face when I heard some of the dialogue that’s shared in the trailer… ‘St Nicholas isn’t coming this year…’ and ‘What kind of goat walks on its hind legs?’
I’m not usually a horror comedy watcher, and I can’t think of any really decent horror comedies off the top of my head, but I wouldn’t lose anything by giving Krampus a watch. My only hopes are that the film is only very lightly layered with comedy and that Krampus himself scares the shit out of me in more than one scene. Check out the trailer below.
