Trick ‘R Treat director’s new holiday horror Krampus gets a trailer!

Now this is more like it! Hope this gets a regular theatrical release, since it’ll be here just in time for the holidays!

There’s one place that the genre doesn’t explore nearly enough and that is Christmas. Sure, there are plenty of classic holiday horror films—Black Christmas, Silent Night Deadly Night, and Gremlins come to mind—but it’s still a largely untapped area for the genre (at least as far as good horror goes). That’s why Michael Dougherty’s Krampus is such a special occasion because not only is this his first film since 2007’s Halloween classic Trick ‘R Treat, but his latest is going straight for the throat of the Christmas season. Better hope you’re not on the naughty list!

In it, a film editor with a wooden hand gets entangled in a web of murders in which he becomes the prime suspect.
