On December 25, 2015 I had the pleasure of watching this film in theaters. I must say that it is and isn't what I expected. I expected the odd CGI that was involved, but I did not expect the sort of quality that the film had. Also, I expected to be bored of the film within twenty minutes, but the film felt as short as twenty minutes. As you all know I am not the biggest horror fan around, but horror comedy is a different story. Krampus had a few jump scares here and there, but overall the film knew what it was trying to be. Odd interjections of comedy in the fashion of Troll 2 created a laughable, but also creepy product. Nonetheless, I did like the film for what it was.
Also, the cast was fun to watch with Adam Scott as a father, Toni Collette as a mother, that one creepy actress who played the grandmother, and David Koechner as every other character he usually is. To be honest, it seems to me that Koechner always plays the same exact role. This is a shame because he is such a great actor. I hope he eventually ends up in a situation similar to Steve Carell, where he can get some serious drama roles and show everyone just how talented he really is. With that little rant on David Koechner, I will leave you guys to watch the film yourselves. Let me know what you think in the comments below if you want to.
The Bottom Line: This is a fun horror comedy that could easily have a cult following if it were just a bit lower budgeted in production.
