Krampus: The Christmas Devil is based on actual mythology dating back to 17th century Alpine/Eastern European lore. Krampus is Saint Nick’s evil brother. However, unlike St. Nick, Krampus brings wrath on children who misbehave. This story follows the life of Jeremy, who escapes the monster as a child, and grows up to become a police officer working to find missing children, only to stumble upon the monster again as an adult. Jeremy learns that the monster is after his daughter, but the plot thickens as Bill Oberst’s character, Brian Hatt, is recently released from prison and is now set on revenge with Jeremy.

Krampus has won Runner-up best horror film at both the 2013 Cleveland Indie Gathering and the prestigious Action On Film Festival in Monrovia, Ca. It is also an official selection in the 2014 Fantastic Horror Film Fest. The film has not yet had a bad review, with matchflick.com giving it 4/5 stars and saying “This one’s for you,” searchmytrash.com saying it’s “enjoyably eccentric,” and a “well paced directorial effort,” “the making of a cult classic” says Guestars, and Dolls of Despair saying “it’s a must see.” It was also named #15/20 on morehorror.com’s “top 20 horror films of 2013.”
