Watch: First Trailer for Michael Dougherty's New Horror 'Krampus'
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Universal has debuted the first official trailer for Krampus, from Michael Dougherty, the director of Trick 'r Treat. This time he's bringing horror to the "most wonderful time of the year" in the form the evil Christmas monster Krampus, who comes to torment a small snowy town. The main cast includes Adam Scott, Toni Collette, Allison Tolman, David Koechner and many others. I love how much fun this looks, with the horror kicking in in the second half. I'm a huge fan of Dougherty's Trick 'r Treat and have been waiting for him to make another movie, and from the looks of it, this is going to be just as good. Get your first look below and put this on your schedule for December. Enjoy!
Watch the first trailer for Michael Dougherty's Krampus, direct from YouTube:
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. Krampus is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Michael Dougherty, of Trick 'r Treat previously. The script is by Todd Casey, Michael Dougherty & Zach Shields. Universal will release Legendary's Krampus in theaters starting on December 4th later this year.
