“Krampus: The Christmas Devil” is a film about that freaky little side kick of ole Saint Nick, Krampus. The film is expected to release in time for the holidays later this year. It is directed by Jason Hull and stars Bill Oberst, Jr, Rich Goteri, Mike Mili, Jay Dobyns, and AJ Leslie. A teaser trailer for the horror film about the devilish creature has been released along with some cool stills from production which were posted on the movie’s Facebook Page.
Special Agent Jeremy Duffin (AJ Leslie) leads a darkened life of memories stemming from an abduction as a child, where he was dropped into a frozen lake and left to die. Now, as Jeremy recognizes a pattern in the deaths and disappearance of children resembling what could have been his ill-fated end, he begins a personal quest to find the man disturbing a normally peaceful Pennsylvania town.
Unbeknownst to Jeremy, the man he is searching for is actually a creature of yule tide lore, Krampus (Brad Weaver), and has begun his final Christmastime task of finding his final victim, Jeremy's daughter, Rebecca. With the aid of his Department captain (Rich Goteri), Jeremy is able to track and locate the location of the kidnapper, but this results in the death of two of his fellow officers.
As Krampus approaches his final task, Jeremy is branded with the capture of his wife and child by the newly released felon, Brian Hatt (Bill Oberst, Jr). Can Jeremy protect his family from a vindictive ex-con and the Devil of Christmas, Krampus? The third action-thriller from director Jason Hull, is sure to keep children off the naughty list for years to come.
