Finally, a Christmas movie I can get behind! Instead of being maudlin and glamorizing what has essentially become the time of year when we gauge how much someone loves us by the amount of stuff they buy us, we instead get what appears to be a life and death battle against the Krampus (who’s like an anti-Klaus in that while Santa rewards children who are good, the Krampus punishes those that are bad. He seeming does so by either drowning, eating or carrying them off to Hell).
Though no matter how he goes about it, he makes that whole lump of coal thing not too bad a compromise.
And sure, the likelihood is that the Krampus from Krampus won’t be as interesting that the Krampus from The League, though that’s to be expected when the latter happens to be powered by Taco.
