A darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, this film reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday. When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max turns his back on Christmas. His lack of festive spirit unleashes the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers.
All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.
Krampus and his mischievous underlings have been created by the combined efforts of Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, both renowned for their epic work on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies and King Kong, among many others.
