Check out some mirthful mayhem in a new Krampus clip!
With the film hitting theaters this weekend, Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have just released a new Krampus clip that offers a taste of the Christmas tale from Trick ‘r Treat writer and director Michael Dougherty. This one features David Koechner facing off against some homicidal gingerbread men. Check out the new Krampus clip in the player below and, in the gallery viewer below, check out nearly a dozen newly-released Krampus stills!
The Krampus movie follows young Max (Emjay Anthony) who, after his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, becomes 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.
Krampus also stars Adam Scott, Toni Collette, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Stefania Lavie Owen and Krista Stadler. What’s more, the film boasts impressive creature design created by the combined efforts of Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, both renowned for their epic work on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies and King Kong, among many others.
Written and directed by Dougherty, the Krampus movie is co-written by Zach Shields and Todd Casey and produced by Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni, Alex Garcia and Dougherty. The film will be released by Universal Pictures on Friday, December 4.
