Krampus: Sad Tidings

Krampus: The Reckoning

Hot on the hell heels of Krampus (2015) and A Christmas Horror Story (2015) comes Krampus: The Reckoning (releasing November 3, 2015). This is the third one in a row to feature the mythological menace. How did a German-speaking Alpine folklore anti-Santa go from being a near complete unknown, to rise to the top of the holiday horror hit list? He must have a good publicist.

Krampus: The Reckoning

Here’s what you’re getting for Christmas: “Zoe is a strange little girl, with a not so imaginary friend the Krampus who is the dark companion of kindly old St. Nicholas. The Krampus has been unleashed upon a small town and the legendary demon will seek out all the naughty people to punish them at Christmas time. No one is safe as the Krampus hunts them down, tortures them and then drags their helpless souls to the depths of hell.”

Krampus: The Reckoning

Seems like a nice enough fellow, though unlike the first two Krampus themed movies, Krampus: The Reckoning features a computer-modeled creature instead of a real Krampus. Talk about a lump of coal in your stocking. But hey, the holiday season can always use more demon creatures from beyond to put some much-needed balance to all that “glad tidings” crappage.
