I was introduce to the idea of Krampus a few years ago when a co-worker and I were finding any and every holiday to do a countdown for. The idea of a villain for Santa—a Joker to his Batman—was (and is) fascinating. It seems as I discovered the legend of Krampus, he grew in popularity as well. There has been a handful of films, some part of this franchise from Robert Conway, and even an anthology film Kevin Smith was working on (before he changed the main antagonist to Kilroy).

What I really like about the trailer for Krampus Origins is that it looks like this movie, while having roots in horror, will have a fantasy element to it. I can’t wait to sink into this film (which we’ll be reviewing here on That’s Entertainment)—watch the trailer below and get your hands on Krampus Origins November 6th, 2018!

It’s going to be a killer Christmas!
