Santa Claus will be coming to town soon and he’s gonna check his list twice to find out who’s naughty or nice.

We certainly hope if you’ve been good because if you have been really naughty, Krampus the child-eating demon will punish you for the lack of holiday spirit.

This December, be prepared to face your worst nightmare through Legendary Pictures’ upcoming holiday horror movie, “Krampus“.

Best known for his 2007 horror film “Trick ‘r Treat”, director Michael Dougherty is helming this movie based on a screenplay co-written by Zach Shields, Todd Casey and Dougherty himself. Alex Garcia serves as the producer alongside Dougherty and Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni.

For “Krampus”, Dougherty took his inspiration from the look and character of horned figures through some postcards and illustrations that he retrieved over the years. His take on Krampus is that the creature is not just “judge, jury and executioner”, but also the “shadow” of Santa.

Krampus Movie Still

Emjay Anthonhy (of “Chef” fame) is starring in this movie as young Max, who has reached the age where he clings to the idea of Santa.

However, he is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas when his fractured family clashes over the holidays. The lack of festive spirit in Max’s family unleashes the wrath of Krampus, a horned-and-hooved anthropomorphic figure that punishes non-believers every Christmas.

All hell breaks loose as Krampus and his mischievous helpers lay siege to the dysfunctional family’s home, forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.
