    Krampus is the movie that makes you not want to be naughty, or else! Scary, with a good storyline. Don't watch it alone!

    Another goodie for the 'cheating' Christmas stack

    |
    Posted .

    There's a sort of set of horror films I try desperately to avoid. There are a few types of horror movies I avoid: the truly bad kind (that people only like ironically, or with post-modern post-irony: "I find the failure born of hubris endearing"), the bad kind some think are okay because the effects are at or near believable (even if everything else about the movie is awful), the kind that most horror fans I run into tend to like (like the former, but about gore/murder setpieces), and the most cynical kind (that often fits with any of the previous groups) that seem to just by soulless exercises in creating setpieces, cheap scares, and/or cult-followings. That inauthenticity is the worst, especially for its periodic successes. I long thought--perhaps muddling the idea with another movie or such-like--this was somewhere in the middle there: a decent budget, but somewhere along the spectrum from "truly bad" to "enjoyed because ideas/effects, with no regard for anything around it". Perhaps something like a SyFy original movie, which often seems to brush up against a fictional version of "ripped from the headlines" ("What's trending in horror?"). I heard a few solid reviews, then found Adam Scott was one of the leads and thought, "Eh, I could use some greater variety in my 'off' Christmas movies". Max (Emjay Anthony) is a young boy set to spend another family Christmas with his mother Sarah (Toni Collette), father Tom (Scott), older sister Beth (Stefania LaVie Owen), aunt Linda (Allison Tolman), grandma "Omi" (Krista Stadler), uncle Howard (David Koechner), and cousins (Howie, Jr. -- Maverick Flack, Jordan -- Queenie Samuel, and Stevie -- Lolo Owen). A Christmas play gone wrong, friction between his parents, his critical sister, and his bullying cousins cause Max to finally break down and reject his love of Santa Claus and Christmas. Unbeknownst to him, this sets Krampus loose on the family: a malevolent spirit that comes out something like a twisted, darkened mirror of Santa Claus. Through intense disbelief--justifiable, under the circumstances--the family slowly realizes they are under threat from something truly malicious. Director and co-writer (with Todd Casey and Zach Shields) Michael Dougherty has tried to revive the spirit of bigger budget horror from the 1980s (Gremlins, Poltergeist, etc), their mentality, effects (the practical kind), and senses of humour. As I often appreciate, this turns out to be not only generally successful, but also turned just-modern-enough to hopefully satisfy the kinds of people who refuse to accept a movie that's neatly linear and "predictable". The threat is made quite real--something the aforementioned movies were successful at achieving, but tending toward unstated shields around a group of core characters--without drifting into utter nihilism, that I also find rather frustrating. WETA Workshop, enlisted for effects, put in great work, that not only helps to easily suspend disbelief, but is creative, interesting, and as high quality was one expects from that crew. The envisioning of this iteration of the Krampus legend is so focused on Krampus as anti-Santa that it can't resist almost all the elements being nudged at, but especially choosing to make the assistants of Krampus not only (rather dark) elves, but also sentient, aggressive, bloodthirsty toys, like a jack-in-the-box, or teddy bear, hideous and monstrous in design. The quality of actors (Scott, Collette, and Anthony, especially) alongside those effects is married to a script that manages to nicely align the triangle between melodramatic conflict, realism, and exaggeration for humour's sake. The in-laws are the greatest tug on exaggeration (a given, I'd almost think due to Koechner), but even on their own will keep things in the right range. This is the most successful element of reviving 80's-style films I can think of, trapped just past the center of the tilt from decreasingly stagey (or "freed-from-the-stage") kinds of characters to "meticulous realism". We can laugh at the absurdities of a character because they're so clearly from a reasonable range of archetypes, tweaked just enough to give us that sense of depth and "don't judge a book" kinds of tentative movement the 80's showed so much of, as a greater trend in writing toward shaded character rolled over things. The setting and design choices are quite good as well, capturing everything the film wants to, from nods to and proof of issues characters bring up, to hitting the mark on the tone and atmosphere intended--from a relatively wealthy home at a modern Christmas, to a hellish tundra devoid of other life, near-apocalyptic from both violent-intruder and climate-wasteland perspectives, holing up not just for safety from the evil forces afoot, but also the bitter, freezing cold enhanced by their presence.  Throw in some good character moments and development, some brave choices that feel neither rote nor "anti-rote", and a good sense of humour, and this may well start to enter my annual end-of-year rotation.

    New Christmas Horror Classic

    |
    Posted .

    Absolutely loved this film, much like the same crew's work on another holiday-themed horror film (with tongue planted firmly in cheek,) Trick R Treat. If you've seen the aforementioned Trick R Treat, you know what to expect tonaly- there's genuine creepiness, and for each instance, there's also some laughs, often of the same instance in question. In Krampus, we're introduced to Adam Scott and his family, who have an outward happiness, even if there's unhappiness just beneath the surface. His brother, played by frequent Will Ferrell collaborator, David Koechner, (playing a pseudo- "Cousin Eddie" of Vacation films role here- while never overreaching to rip-off territory,) comes with his family to spend the holidays, where their mother also lives. Where Scott's family may hide their issues more successfully, his brother's family wear their issues as both badges of honor and suits of armor, and it takes digging to find their happiness buried below. This brings it to something I normally can't stand in films... but is perfect in today's climate; not so subtle political statements. Where Scott is the democrat, Koechner is a gun-loving staunch republican. Like the story itself, it's all done tongue in cheek, and never becomes overbearing; much of what's said and done is for laughs. (Upon a knock on the door, and a present being left on the porch, as they wonder who left it, Koechner quips, "it must have been a Democrat".) If anything, the political message here is one both sides should be able to agree on: when the chips are down, no matter what we believe, we're stronger working together. (If you even choose to follow through on the political clues throughout the film- as stated, this is far from a political movie, and both sides get their share of jokes in the film). Of course, it's Scott's son, bullied by his sports-addicted female cousins, that has a crisis of his yearly letter to Santa. In a fit, he rips it up and the spirit of Krampus is personified, besting the Christmas spirit that he and his grandmother seemed to carry for the entire family. What follows is a great Christmas film; much more one than horror or even comedy. It uses all of the genres it includes to make a great film about Christmas, family, and conflict... while remaining entertaining it's entire running time. And that's what's made Krampus great. You can view it in any way you choose, because each genre it represents, each message it sends is strong enough to watch it as an individual theme, or to just sit down and take it all in. There's very little letdown here, with my only complaint being a lack of screen time... or screen time of impressiveness of the title character. When Krampus is seen, he's an impressive figure, but I wanted to see more- particularly because it wears a Santa mask that's never removed. As impressive as the rest of the creature is, I would have loved to see what the FX crew had dreamed up as its true face. While I selected 5 stars, Krampus really should be 4 1/2. The minimal usage of Krampus was enough to leave me that 1/2 star disappointed. I know what I'll be watching this Christmas!

    The Nightmare During Christmas

    |
    Posted .

    When I think horror and Christmas I think Nightmare Before Christmas. Well this movie is more like the Nightmare during Christmas. I assumed with a movie like this the plot would be very simple and it was. Family comes to visit. Young boy is losing faith in Christmas. Family pushes him over the edge. Boy gives up on the holiday. Enter Krampus. What I was not expecting form this movie was the work put into Krampus and his creatures of torment. The special effects for this kind of movie are superb and the story moves along never really losing any pace. If your looking for a different kind of horror/drama movie or even Christmas movie this is it. This movie will have you invested in it right from the beginning all the way to the end with a very interesting ending and may even have you looking at how you celebrate this holiday. Christmas or horror fans do yourself a favor and check this one out!

    Nice Little Creature Effects Holiday-Themed Movie

    |
    Posted .

    This is a low-budget, Christmas themed horror/fantasy/creature-effects-driven/dark humor film that I was pleasantly surprised by. The film really hones itself in peeling back the family tension of Christmas, while weaving a strongly stylized monster movie, along with dark humor. If you go into watching the movie for the really well done creature effects, and deglorified view of being forced into spending time with family members that, outside of family relation, there aren't any real bonds, this is a well done picture. I did find that, while they did a fantastic job of stretching their dollar in the creatures and special effects, I had a real problem with the main creature's (Krampus) lack of automated mandible, though there could be an argument made that it's more mask donned by Krampus than actual face. If you enjoy creature driven films and done mind a bleak message about being forced to spend time with relatives during the holiday, you'll enjoy this film.

    Solid B movie

    It’s got some good actors in it, but if you’re looking for a seriously scary story and plot, this isn’t it. It’s the perfect B movie with a few jumps, laughs, and a decent plot.

    A Christmas Horror(?) Movie

    |
    Posted .

    Krampus is a very different Christmas horror(?) movie. You will either like it or hate it. To me the advertisements and Blu-ray covers are deceiving. The story is about a very dysfunctional family which disturbs the son so he turns his back on Christmas. What follows is mayhem. I didn't think this was very scary and may turn true horror fans away. Also, the Krampus helpers were kind of silly. But the theme and the actors are quite good. There are some major stars in this movie and the ending has a twist which will leave you contemplating on the ending. In retrospect, I did like this movie.

    A Modern Day Gremlins Style Movie

    |
    Posted .

    I have to admit, when I saw the trailer for this I was super excited. Upon viewing it I felt slight disappointment. You may take that as I didn't like the film, but that's not true. The film is great for what it does, but the moment I saw the trailer I was expecting a modern day Gremlin's vibe from this movie. Though it delivers to some extent, especially with the mischievous nature of the film, I felt the humor and fun of Gremlins was not there. Now that's no fault of the movie. That was just my expectation. The film tells a great story and does it well. I just wished it balanced a little more lighter tone with the darker tone. If you like refreshing horror/holiday themed films that don't rely on gore check it out. Recommended.

    Ho...Ho...Horror!

    |
    Posted .

    If watched as a "fantasy" with horror aspects, this film is a fun, and an enjoyable experience, complete with "practical" visual effects. The cast is rather good, Toni Collette and Adam Scott work well together, and bring subtlety to a film that would have sufficed without, but it is nice to see those moments among a macabre Christmas tale. Allison Tolman is the best present under this horror tree, and Krista Stadler showcases why she is a top talent in her native Vienna. The disc release does contain an alternate ending, but the theatrical ending is left to interpretation as it stands. Krampus will scare the younger generation, but will entertain as a nice fantasy film for the adults.

    Apparently a good Christmas movie

    Posted .

    This a now a yearly Christmas movie we watch, been 3 years now. Finally decided to get a copy for ourselves since we always watch it at our yearly family party. It will definitely be a scary movie for young viewers. Our group of young children are no longer scared after watching it a few times and understanding the moral in thia movie. The scares are good and visual effects look great. This movie has a very good moral story. No spoilers. I definitely recommend this movie to everyone.
