Krampus is a horror-comedy that doesn't go far enough into either of its two genres ... there's too much wasted potential to make this a true holiday horror classic.

Some clever soul might have done something moderately effective with this idea, but Krampus is too dumb to be scary and too listless to be entertaining.

The movie sometimes gets lost in all its monster fights, but then the ominous, somewhat ambiguous ending ties everything together. Krampus may be too much for sensitive viewers, but lovers of alternative holiday viewing will rejoice.

Otherwise, this holiday-season fright flick never leaps far enough outside of its own box; the movie flirts with going full-on monster mash, with really cutting loose, but the mayhem is too little, too late.

The legend of the Krampus, often referred to as the shadow of St. Nicholas, is a fertile one indeed, but this "Krampus" - a missed opportunity for anti-saccharine counter programming - isn't likely to create many new believers.

Unfortunately, the narrow scope of his story - which is primarily set inside the characters' abode - makes the film feel akin to a Christmas-themed home invasion thriller minus the surprises.

Still, it nicely blends horror and humour, delivers scary stuff at its best, and is well worth the watch if you're sick to the stomach of traditional Christmas slush.
November 5, 2019
It's a pleasantly perverse idea with potential for grisly humor, cultural satire and the kind of murderous fantasies that run through all our heads when relatives overstay their welcome.
November 5, 2019
It's passable when it hits its stride, but too black-hearted to feel like any kind of classic.

The risks taken in this film are appreciated. The film is ideal for these Christmas days. [Full Review in Spanish]

The twists and turns keep the movie afloat and it doesn't go without merit considering the genre. [Full Review in Spanish]

Krampus is like a deformed version of a classic Disney fairy tale. The delirium, this time, is appreciated. [Full Review in Spanish]

As cliché as it may sound, Krampus is the gift that keeps on giving.
August 7, 2019
Delves deep into Yuletide lore to deliver something wholly original, making it something of a breath of fresh air for horror aficionados.
April 17, 2019
A wholly unpredictable romp which culminates in a wonderfully bonkers third act.

Krampus nails its goal to perfection. [Full Review in Spanish]

The anti-Christmas movie that wants to be naughty, but ultimately misses the mark.

Krampus won't be the perfect Christmas present for everyone, but with its creepy visuals and twisty tale, it's just the thing for those who like some monsters decorating the tree.

Not that scary but Krampus and his murderous gingerbread men are fun. Watch after losing your own Christmas Spirit: when you've run out of sellotape while wrapping presents and then realise someone's eaten all the purple ones out of the Quality Street.

Krampus is a film that will be added to my list of Christmas movies I have to watch every year. It ties in old traditions with how the holidays are today.
