What to know

critics consensus

Krampus is gory good fun for fans of non-traditional holiday horror with a fondness for Joe Dante's B- movie classics, even if it doesn't have quite the savage bite its concept calls for. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

While the holiday season represents the most magical time of year, ancient European folklore warns of Krampus, a horned beast who punishes naughty children at Christmastime. When dysfunctional family squabbling causes young Max (Emjay Anthony) to lose his festive spirit, it unleashes the wrath of the fearsome demon. As Krampus lays siege to the Engel home, mom (Toni Collette), pop (Adam Scott), sister (Stefania LaVie Owen) and brother must band together to save one another from a monstrous fate.

    The film is trying to be a new Gremlins, using the festive season for some horror and the set up works rather nicely with the arrival of the unloved extended family. The tone is then somewhat undecided, too silly for grown-ups and too creepy for kids, especially when it comes to Krampus' multilpe helper creatures. That's borderline annoying a few times and would have worked much better with the emphasis on the main antagonist. But even he gets silly once we see underneath his hood often enough. At least the final twist is surprisingly evil.

    Didn’t love or hate this. It was an okay Christmas horror. Dragged out a little long, though it wasn’t.

    A traditional horror film that uses CGI sparingly and doesn't take itself too seriously. A delight!

    A fun, silly bit of holiday horror. This film could have gone much further in several directions: campier, scarrier, darker. There are not many thrills under the tree, but it has some delightful henchmen lurking among the boughs and holly. The film's score is notably clever but not enough that you'll be likely add the soundtrack CD to your Christmas list.
