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.
Heard some good things about this rendition of the forklore and while not bad with some funny moments and a decent cast, I wasn’t totally enamored with this one. The effects were alright and the horror elements were fine, but never really was fully engaged. I don’t know, not exactly a horror Christmas classic and not much desire to revisit anytime soon. **3.25/5**
A Very Good throwback to 80s horror.
Plot: A boy who has a bad Christmas ends up accidentally summoning a Christmas demon to his family home.
This was a fun movie to watch, the kind of film I’ve been wanting to see done with much love and respect to the fans of the genre. Each of the cast does a good job portraying their characters even if the characters are not the friendliest people in the world. The practical effects are terrific and are a huge relief from all the CGI these days. Even though I don’t hate CGI, a lot of filmmakers tend to overuse it these days. This film only used CGI when necessary which is something that most filmmakers should learn.
I only have 2 problems hence why I gave this an 8 and that is the ending is kind of weak and not every joke worked for me, but that’s it. This film is a really good throwback to the 80s with a really good cast, script, story and great practical effects. Please go see this, these type of films need to be made nowadays, not reboots of movies and TV shows.
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.
