A mixed bag.
‘Krampus’ has a lot of potential, based on the dark themes we see. However, unfortunately, it dumbs itself down in festive family gathering melodrama. I also didn’t rate the ending that much, not that it’s bad per se – it’s just meh to me.
Adam Scott is alright in the role of Tom, though is bettered by Toni Collette as Sarah; albeit minorly. The most interesting character is Krista Stadler’s Omi, though they don’t delve as deeply into her as I expected/wanted. Elsewhere, David Koechner’s character, Howard, is kinda lame, but Koechner himself is solid. Of the younger actors, Emjay Anthony (Max) and Stefania LaVie Owen (Beth) are OK.
It does do positive things. Some of the tension building is good, even if their eventual pay-offs are a little underwhelming. The antagonists look cool, especially the gingerbread men and the jack-in-the-box. It works Xmas music vibes into the score well, also.
Nothing terrible, but it didn’t work out all that enjoyably for me personally.
> A creepy Christmas tale of a family.
Probably no one would have anticipated it, this is a surprise movie, especially being an anti-Christmas theme. Possibly the one last time I enjoyed was a Finnish film called ‘Rare Export’, that’s the name came in my mind after watching this. I also could not believe this rated PG13, well it differs in other countries. Of course, there are plenty of intensified frightening scenes, even for the adults, but no gores. The violence parts were well edited/shot, yet it makes sure they’re still part of the story without showing them. I think it was a smart filmmaking keeping in mind the family audience. So in the end, I guess it paid off well.
I did not know the plot, as well as a few words that referred in the movie. But while watching it, I was worried about the graphics, because this is not a big budget film. Even the cast was not from the top league. Overall, it achieved a good result, that’s the point. There are no major flaws as well, and the small ones can be easily ignorable. Because on the other side the movie provides a good suspenseful entertainment that makes you not to move the body or the eyeballs. After I’m saying all these, you should at least consider giving it a shot. But remember there’s no story in it, it was constructed on a panic situation during the heavy blizzard when one after another begin to disappear.
The next horror cult classic
Honestly Universal should be paying me for the amount of hype i’ve created for this film among my friends and their friends. I was without a doubt super excited for Krampus for two reasons. Firstly it’s a horror film that isn’t from Blumhouse, honestly with every horror film these days being “from the producers of Paranormal activity, Insidious and The Purge” I was starting to think Jason Blum made a pact with the devil to produce all mainstream horror films. Secondly this was the kind of film I hadn’t seen in ages, something along the lines of Gremlins but more horror focused was what I’ve been wanting for a long time. So after seeing Krampus I was not disappointed at all. Was it a horror masterpiece on par with The Exorcist? No it wasn’t but thats not at all what I wanted. I wanted a fun imaginative horror film and one that finally does justice to the long overlooked legend of Krampus. The idea of a Christmas horror film is nothing new but all the well known ones (Black Christmas, Silent Night Deadly Night) are always slasher films with human villains when Christmas had it’s own traditional villain with Krampus why has it taken so long to bring him to the big screen?
But anyway Krampus is unlike any film i’ve really seen before it’s both lighthearted and funny but also surprisingly horrifying. I mean it when I say there’s some nightmare fuel in this film even if i didn’t find it that scary It is still in my opinion a legitimate horror. The Visit proved to me that horror and comedy can mix well. When a horror film is 100% serious thats OK as long as it’s warranted. When a horror film takes itself too seriously though it can make it a boring watch. A great comparison is A Nightmare On Elm Street from 1984 and it’s remake in 2010 the remake was largely panned because it was too serious while dealing with some ridiculous subject matter whereas the original made it into some morbid humour which worked much better. Krampus does the same although it is obviously more of a comedy than Elm Street.
Krampus himself looks fantastic being made entirely of practical effects and carries a great presence in may opinion he is a classic horror villain in the making. Of course he isn’t alone and is accompanied by demonic toys and wicked elves who’s sadistic and playful nature makes for some truly horrifying visuals. Oddly enough though this is still a Christmas movie and does manage to bring me those warm holiday feelings. I think this film in it’s own right will hold a special place in my heart as a holiday movie with a wickedly twisted side that I just loved so much.
In conclusion Krampus won’t win Oscars but I think if you go in wanting to have fun and experience some scares along the way you’ll be more than satisfied. Krampus is one hell of a Christmas gift.
Christmas usually a time of cheerfulness and presents thanks to the jolly Santa is flipped upside down when Krampus comes to town. The events follow an obnoxious family, who are crude in their comedy, and have poor decision making. Funny man Adam Scott and horror vet Toni Collette make a unique couple but are relied upon heavily being the only serious roles written for the film. There is an appropriate blend of comedy and horror, which is seen in the absurdity of characters, evil gingerbread men, and killer toys, not so much the written dialogue. Once Krampus is seen fully his appearance is pretty cool looking like an old decrepit vile Santa. The ending was rather a letdown but overall it was a decent fun horror flick. It would be best to watch Krampus during Christmas time because it does have a great holiday feel to it, worthy of a watch for sure.
