Horror fans are very excited about Michael Dougherty’s first feature length film since his much loved Halloween horror anthology, Trick ‘r Treat, and now we finally have the full synopsis for Krampus to share with you.
Bloody Disgusting discovered the synopsis for the Christmas themed horror, and you can read it below.
Written and directed by Michael Dougherty, the cast of Krampus includes Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania Lavie Owen with Krista Stadler.
Co-written by Todd Casey and Zach Shields and produced by Legendary’s Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Alex Garcia, this darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul will be released by Universal Pictures.
The horror-comedy tells the story of young Max (Emjay Anthony), who turns his back on Christmas as his dysfunctional family comes together and comically clashes over the holidays. When they accidentally unleash the wrath of Krampus—an ancient entity from European folklore—all hell breaks loose and beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own. Now, the fractured family is forced to unite if they hope to survive.
