Well, the only good thing about the movie is the story line but don't let that fool you. First of all, the acting - mmmm no acting at all in this film. I starting laughing when she (the Psychiatrist) walks into the hospital and speaks with the reception. Not sure what happened there but that lady sitting behind the desk just didn't seem comfortable with her 2 minutes of screen time. All the actors seemed to be robotic, in slow motion and even when they walked, it wasn't realistic. The whole feel of the film wasn't realistic. The conversation between the people dragged out and so slow, I was getting nervous and began shouting at the screen for them to hurry up and finish their dialogue. Certain scenes didn't make sense either. One scene where a woman starts to cry over her husband. Here we were to think he died recently. She starts to overact with her tears, sobbing like a crazed woman when we find out he has been dead for around 20 years! The young girl, I think she thought she was ideal for the role. At times she did a not too bad scene but again, not good enough to make me believe her character. The effects were nothing great - made for television effects and Krampus himself, looked good in the dark shots but when you saw him whole and in the light, well, you be the judge.
While searching for this page found out that there are a lot of Krampus movies on the way. I think I can all ready say this is the worst of them all and probably made by some "friends" to hop a long on the Christmas bandwagon. One star is actually to much for this film and it really belongs at he bottom of a barrel or at least far out of sight. If you sit thru 10 minutes of this and still watch the rest you either had something to do with this or your some what of a nitwit who never seen any flick before this one. Avoid the mistake that it will get better and actually have"something" because it's just not there. I am looking for worth to the other 2 installments because their aren't much good Christmas horrors out there. Only one I can think of is "rare exports"and the rest are more outdated ones from the 70s and 80s. Almost forgot one of the remakes they made and that was O.K. but more in part and not as a whole(it dragged a lot of storyline). Just remember DO NOT WATCH THIS ONE! It will only lead to agony. 2 thumbs down. Plain awful.
Okay, there is one glaring review by someone who gave this movie a 9 and raves about what a great movie it is. And even states that it is far superior to several other Krampus themed movies coming out this year. HHAAA!!! I saw one of the others, "Krampus", in the theater a week ago, and I must tell you it was also absolute trash, but it's an Oscar winner compared to this bucket of movie puke! The fact that this certain 9-star "reviewer" constantly praises the young lead actress and the director leads me to believe that this person is, somehow, tied to this movie (probably the director himself or the father of the actress using an IMDb alias profile). This movie was terrible! Just terrible. It drags on and on and on with very weak dialogue and slow action until a scene finally changes. Sloppy directing and some horrible camera work. I think the director may have taken a home-study course in video production... and flunked out. Here's a little storytelling advice for the director: The sloppy, white-trash, soft-core porn scene in the beginning was TOTALLY unnecessary and a scene like that does not serve to advance the plot. You just put it in there to try to give your horror movie some kind of substance, and probably a couple of friends a chance to be naked in a horror movie. It was like watching a porn video made by some amateur next door neighbors - and not very good looking ones, at that. So next time (God help us if there is one) skip that kind of garbage. It doesn't add validity to your horror movie, it only serves as a sign of weak storytelling. And stop lingering with your scenes. They just drag on. Build some tension. And for God's sake, spring for some kind of real creature makeup effects instead of a lo-res, poorly animated monster. The burnt remains of his victims were more convincing than Krampus himself. And by the way, his name is pronounced Krum-poohs, not Kram-pus. "Kram-pus" sounds too much like "Gramps" and it just really doesn't invoke any level of fear. Do your research before your write or direct a movie. The young lead actress is nothing to behold, just another face in a crowd of 1000's of hopefuls. I know we all want to encourage young talent, but come on, Mr. IMDb Alias, her acting was not that great. I've seen better acting on Nick Jr. sitcoms. And the guy playing the lead detective... wow. Did he take acting lessons from Ferris Bueller's Economics teacher? You know, the guy who just droned "Bueller, Bueller" for an eternity? There was absolutely no level of excitement in this guy's voice whatsoever. He sounded like he had a perpetual taking-a-dump kind of grunt to every word he mumbled. Christian Bale did it better as Batman. Well, in closing, if you're considering watching this, I'd suggest you just skip this piece of garbage and thank heavens you weren't a part of its production. Or you could do your very own MST3k episode with it.
I am not going to call it awful because the story was pretty good, but the acting was terrible. The lead female with her droopy sad eyes, became annoying to look at just like that big bald guy with the ugly smile who looked like Daddy Warbucks. This story is interesting but so unbelievably rushed at the end. Some parts of this movie made no sense. Maybe it is just me, I dunno. I did not love this movie or hate this movie. I am somewhere in between. I think if the acting was better I might have enjoyed this movie a whole lot more. Regardless, if you want to see a movie with bad acting and ugly actors, this is the movie for you.
Hard to watch, almost fell asleep a few times and I do ask myself, why didn't it? It's quite a bad movie, from every point of view, it's cheap, with bad acting, horrible dialogue, tries too much to blend in some horror elements and the Krampus itself ...I know a small budget allows too little glamour on screen but still, 2015 comes with some standards. Anyway, I went it with some expectations, but I ended it with red eyes and yawn after yawn. This isn't a horror movie, it's a weak production, with one of the worse sound tracks ever, that will make you roll your eyes more than anything. Cheers!
