Legendary Pictures in-conjunction with Universal will be unleashing ‘Krampus’ this year. This horror-comedy follows Max, played by Emjay Anthony (Insurgent) . The young man has turned his back on Christmas during the holiday, as his family’s dysfunction reaches an all time high. Krampus, an ancient deity who punishes bad children on Christmas and is the opposite of lovable Saint Nick, is unleashed and the bickering family must find a way to work to together if the want to survive.
This twisted version of a holiday movie stars ‘Parks and Recreation’ actor Adam Scott, Toni Collette (Hostages), Allison Tolman (Fargo), David Koechner (Anchorman), Conchata Ferrell (Mr. Deeds), Stefania Owen of ‘The Lovely Bones’ and others. ‘Krampus’ was written by Todd Casey and Michael Dougherty, who also directed the movie.
‘Krampus’ will be released just in time for the holidays, on December 4th.
