Monster of the Day #1476

I have to admit, this version has a certain flare.

[Get it?]
  • Way to make light of the situation.


    This particular Krampus looks more like a mask than the rest. Wonder if that’s on purpose. Mythical Germanic figures didn’t typically need flares…

    On the one hand it’s an obvious devil mask and a shag-carpet gorilla outfit.

    On the other hand, it’s not bad CGI. Furthermore, it’s actually kind of charming in its low-tech-ness.

    I approve. Whichever of the DTV Krampus movies this is (because obviously it’s not the one that was in theaters) will have a point in its favor. Actually, so far, the only one that doesn’t is the first one, as I rather liked the Hideous Sun Demon one, too. But that generic CGI demon….meh.

    Yeah, this guy ain’t half bad, not as good as yesterday thouh which I loved. Some of these other guys, well I’ve seen ugly Christmas sweaters scarier than them.

    It makes me think of Lord Kinbot from “The X-Files”. The red light mostly.

  • Wade Harrell

    I think this is a guy in a mask at one of the German festivals and not from a movie at all, unless it is a movie scene depicting one of those festivals.

  • Ken_Begg

    Quite possible! I haven’t actually seen any of these.

  • The Rev.

    Yeah, I’m looking forward to whichever movie the previous entry was from, because that was damn cool. I should start the hunt this weekend, as I’ve fully decided on the Krampus thing this year.

  • The Rev.

    For anyone that cares…

    As Ken mentioned, Christmas Horror Story is on Netflix.

    The one with the crappy CGI Krampus can be seen for free if you have Amazon Prime. Figures that one’s freely available.

    Hideous Sun Krampus is on a Roku channel I haven’t heard of, so hopefully I can see that for free; that one actually came out in 2013. Its sequel is also free on Prime.

    The one with the awesome Krampus, which is rightfully displayed on the box art, is a reasonable rental cost on Amazon.

    The theatrical release I’ll probably just buy, as I can’t imagine it’ll cost much more than the Amazon rental would.

    So, looks like I’m set to have a very Kramped Kristmas. Which is totally what I’m calling this if I do reviews of them. Which I might, if I finally get my pending book review for Lyz done.

  • The Rev.

    Oh, it looks like this one here is in the 2013 one, and HSK is in its sequel. Huh.
