    Krampus Unleashed

    β˜…Β½

    Not as bad as 'Krampus: the Christmas devil' which my friend and I watched immediately before this but certainly nothing to write home about.

    The setting was really off. Why was this set at Xmas at all? Krampus seemed not to be tied to the season.

    Most of the characters were so irritating (a variation on Kevin the annoying teenager and a strange coal studying version of Kevin McAllister from 'home alone' to name just 2!) that you can completely understand how quickly they got over each other's deaths.

    Not recommended at all.

    Hooptober 4: movie no 17.

    It has been many years since I saw this and I had forgotten how good it is.

    The sheer simplicity and efficiency of the plot is great. The ending is a bit of a downer but fits the overall tone of the film.

    The fact that the movie happens almost in real time and the pacing make this a late night horror movie of the first order.
