Tess Pfeifle, the lead researcher for Astonishing Legends, joined us to talk about Krampus. Before talking about the movie, Tess helps us discuss the Krampus myth from around the world. It was a great pleasure to have Tess visit us in the crypt.
I was late to watching this one, mainly because I didn’t know the tone the movie was going for. I was surprised by the black humor that was in it. Not only was it hilarious, but also a great horror movie.
Our original plan was to review Krampus back in 2017, but we never had the chance to record it. I immediately thought of Tess when we decided it was time to review this movie. We hope she decides to come back and review other horror movies in the future.
“While the holiday season represents the most magical time of year, ancient European folklore warns of Krampus, a horned beast who punishes naughty children at Christmastime. When dysfunctional family squabbling causes young Max (Emjay Anthony) to lose his festive spirit, it unleashes the wrath of the fearsome demon. As Krampus lays siege to the Engel home, mom (Toni Collette), pop (Adam Scott), sister (Stefania LaVie Owen), and brother must band together to save one another from a monstrous fate.”
