We can finally agree that it is the Festive season now that December has hit, and to get you in the Christmas spirit we have a new clip from Krampus. In the clip we get a few seconds of a Krampus chase, where the Christmas demon jumps from rooftop to rooftop to secure his prey. It’s quite terrifying.
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.
Director Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat) is behind this dark festive treat and from what we’ve seen so far, Krampus looks like it’s embodying a fantastic visual style. The relentless snowstorm looks beautifully perilous, perfectly summing up the film’s desire to mix horror with the exquisite.
You better watch out, because Krampus will be unleashed in cinemas on 4th December 2015.
