The legend of krampus dates way back to obscure beginnings. Some say the spoken word goes back to the 6th century. The written word started around the 17th century. I don’t remember hearing much about it until more recently. The last 10-15 years have incorporated Krampus into pop culture much more. TV shows like “Grimm”, and several movies like “Slay Belles” and “Krampus” (2015) showcase this.
Jenn - Jennifer Rhodes met Melanie back when True Blood was popular and they have been friends ever since. She loves TV (especially things that make you smile), Doctor Who, Finding new shows, and regularly provides awesome fandom items for Muser Giveaways. Jennifer is now a proud member of the VIPers - the Melanie's Muses Spotlight Feature Team!
We all know the legend of Santa Claus. Krampus is a legend that some may not know, some might but he’s usually more mentioned in other countries. Krampus is totally opposite of old St Nick. He goes too see the bad kids and usually with switches never harming them though. Well this movie about Krampus takes a horror turn and this family ends up not being so lucky. By the end of the movie you’re thinking maybe that kid shouldn’t been such of a brat and they should of just left that snow globe alone. Wishes are never a good thing, don’t know what I mean? Well go check out this newer movie version of Krampus and you just might.
Melanie - I do enjoy a bit of the darker lore and I do love that like Dave said, it is popping up more in general culture. He mentioned Grimm but my fav was in Supernatural lol. Fun fact - the kid that appeared in that episode is also in one of my favorite Christmas movies "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" - which also plays at the beginning of this trailer!
