A recent addition to the roster of horror classics set during the holidays, Krampus, like its brethren, flips the most magical time of year for its darker fare, here zoning in on ancient European folklore that warns of Krampus, a horned beast who punishes naughty children at Christmastime. When dysfunctional family squabbling causes a young boy to lose his festive spirit, it unleashes the wrath of the fearsome demon. As Krampus lays siege to the Engel home, mom (Toni Collette), pop (Adam Scott), sister (Stefania LaVie Owen), and brother must band together to save one another from a monstrous fate.
