This film made me realize I ought to believe in Santa!

Movies like this need to be more around as the future progresses and with remakes upon remakes maybe one day people will treasure this film more than they treasure, let's say It. Basically after a kid proclaims he wishes there was no Christmas he throws his Christmas List into the cold winter sky, embracing a storm. After a series of events they realize a figure from mythology, Krampus, comes to haunt them, showing the terror of Santa's twin's wrath on camera. This film should really be a cult classic and should be as well known as Jeepers Creepers or maybe even Insidious. What brought me down was somewhat of a lack of action with occasional jokes every now and then and maybe a momentary jump scare that isn't surprising. What I did like was it's feeling in holidays and how it kept that feeling throughout.

O-oh, the monsters in the attic are frightful!

I must admit that I originally hadn't planned to ever watch "Krampus", due to the assumption that it was more of a dark Christmas tale for children (like "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" or "Gremlins"), but then it suddenly became my "annual Christmas horror back-up plan"! For you see, I have this stupid but inescapable tradition of watching at least one Christmas-themed horror movie per year and I still hadn't found a suitable title around new year's! Since I've already seen all the classics and couldn't get my hand on the ones that I initially planned to see (either "Better Watch Out" or "All Through the House"), I purchased a copy of "Krampus" that was on promo-sale at my local supermarket. And I must say that I'm very glad it turned out this way, as this is seriously one of the biggest pleasant surprises I encountered in years! "Krampus" is child-friendly but not childish, and it contains far more suspense, creepy imagery and grisly monsters than I've seen in any other horror film lately. The opening sequences are downright fantastic: to the tunes of a golden oldie Bing Crosby carol, we see a compilation of less joyful holiday sights like crowded supermarkets with people fighting over presents and little kids crying on Santa's lap. It's a nice change from all the usual and fake merry scenes in movies and immediately sets the tone for a different kind of Christmas story. The film further unfolds like an old-fashioned folklore/fairy-tale, with young Max tearing up his letter to Santa Clause and cursing Christmas because his family is fighting at the diner table. By doing so, however, Max summons an ancient creature from the Austrian mythology. Krampus, the evil shadow of Saint Nicolas, punishes the unbelievers of Christmas by covering the entire landscape in ice and unleashing his monstrous toy creatures. "Krampus" feels like a mixture between the comedy classic "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" (dysfunctional family spending the holiday period together) and the Dutch horror flick "Sint" (demolishing the image of children's heroes), and the result is a fast-paced, atmospheric and beautiful film. There's even a terrific animated flashback interlude, explaining the origins of Krampus and the grandmother's first encounter with him. A lot of time and effort was also put in special effects and monster designs. It takes a while before we get to see Krampus but, luckily, he has an army of creepy minions, like evil gingerbread men, elves and scary dolls. With the excellent "Trick 'r Treat", co-writer and director Michael Dougherty already showed his great potential and with "Krampus" he forever proved that he's a multi-talented storyteller. Recommended!

the best krampus i've seen

This move is good with room for improvement. Many stars for the production, acting, and overall direction. Loses stars for lack of internal logic: this kid definitely had the Xmas spirit and his family wasn't that bad. I loved the devilish imagery and humor!
