New Poster for the Christmas Horror Film KRAMPUS
Legendary Pictures has released a new poster for Michael Dougherty’s upcoming Christmas horror film Krampus. Dougherty is the writer and director who brought us Trick ‘r’ Treat, so you know you’re in for a good time. Everything that I’ve seen from Krampus has looked awesomely terrifying.
The movie is based on a figure from German folklore who has become popular again in recent years. I’ve always felt Krampus would be a great subject for a horror movie, and it’s great that it’s actually been made. Here’s the synopsis:
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 and his mischievous underlings have been created by the combined efforts of Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, both renowned for their epic work on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies and King Kong, among many others.
The movie also stars Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Stefania Lavie Owen, and Krista Stadler.
The film will be released by Universal Pictures on December 4th.
