Comments: A group of fortune hunters searching for treasure German gold find something else. As they fight over a ancient stone he is released, the Krampus. The fear from the men is immense. Things do turn bloody.
Than we skip ahead to Christmas time. A family is visiting the grandparents. Father, mother, daughter and son. Plus another family father, mother and son. The first family seems perfect and the second dysfunctional.
The acting is not the greatest but it is not the worst either.
The family members are getting along at Christmas with some small problems from Troy one of the sons. He is lazy, stupid, rude and horny.
Bonnie is a beautiful woman that lives in the area. She is definitely the sexy one in this movie. We get to see her topless.
The younger son with the cute sister, well he finds a rock and the Krampus is unleashed. Terror stalks the countryside.
Death comes to those who encounter the Krampus. The blood and gore does amp up as the movie goes on. The surviving members find themselves on the run as death follows them. They pick up Coop a fiend of Boonie’s and they have a plan.
You can easily tell this is a low budget film. The creature effects are not very realistic.
The ending is anticlimactic and weird.
The story of the Krampus is a good one but this movie barely mentions his mythological origins and tells you next to nothing about him.
There a few scenes that do bring out the horror of the Krampus. He is like a big strong evil monster hunting those who have awakened him.
