When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family's home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive. Featuring an ensemble cast that includes Adam Scott (TV’s Parks and Recreation), Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine), Allison Tolman (TV's Fargo) and David Koechner (Anchorman), this is a wonderfully dark and subversive "must-see film." –WEGOTTHISCOVERED.COM

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.

The movie sends mixed messages. It's hard, but gooey, too. Trick 'r Treat showed that Dougherty has a mean streak (with wit), but with Krampus, he's clearly been charged with delivering a wide-appeal PG-13 film.

Too many obnoxious relatives, evil critters and weak gags at the expense of fat kids and foul-mouthed old ladies.

Christmas horror comedy is dark but has genuine good cheer.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Krampus is a Christmas-themed horror movie that blends scares with humor and genuine warmth. The main character is a boy who believes in Christmas and in family but temporarily loses heart. Although the story has a fairly dark, somewhat ambiguous ending that may be upsetting for sensitive viewers, fans of "alternative" holiday fare are likely to enjoy it. Scary/violent elements include monsters and fighting, guns and shooting, as well as children in peril and some shocking/frightening imagery. Language includes one use of "f--k," plus "s--t," "bitch," and "a--hole" (the latter spoken by a child). There's some adult drinking, mainly played for humor, as well as a child taking a sip of peppermint Schnapps (given to him by an adult) and a quick reference to a teen smoking pot (he holds up a Christmas-themed bong). Sex isn't an issue, but a married couple does show affection to each other.
