Krampus Photos

The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while Krampus is figuring out how to rip off their heads. The first photos from the upcoming Christmas horror Krampus have been revealed via USA Today. From the same director who reinvented Halloween horror with Trick 'r Treat, Mike Dougherty is next bringing us Krampus, starring Adam Scott, Toni Collette, Allison Tolman, David Koechner and many others. It's about the Krampus monster (seen in a shrouded silhouette below) who comes to haunt children. I saw some footage from this at Comic-Con and it looks damn good. Until the trailer hits, check out these photos.

Here's the first set of photos from Michael Dougherty's Krampus below. View the first teaser poster here.

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.

I have a feeling this will suck!

Nah, from Mike Dougherty, it's the other way around. Have you seen Trick 'r Treat?

Alex Billington on Sep 8, 2015


noop! But now you mentioned it,i will watch it soon. It's my favorite genre...

ari smulders on Sep 8, 2015


Trick r Treat was a lot of fun, definitely watch it.

For some reason I thought Kevin Smith was involved with this project, but I guess I was mistaken.

I think Kevin Smith was developing a completely different movie based on the Krampus myth. Not entirely sure, but maybe two projects were in the works, and this one made it out first. Smith went on to do his Yoga Hosers movie.

Alex Billington on Sep 8, 2015


Ah, that makes sense, I doubt his project will ever see the light of day following this though, Dougherty is the king of genre films.

there is "a Christmas horror story" - the trailer is out. it looks pretty entertaining to me.

The creature made me think of the "monsters" from 'The Village'...which didn't give me a good feeling.

That movie was great until about halfway through when you find out what they really are. Then it all fell apart.
