I’d be a liar if I said I was excited about the soon-arriving Krampus Unleashed. Robert Conway is the man in the director’s chair, and that’s what concerns me. Conway is the same man who directed what might be the worst Krampus film in existence, Krampus: The Reckoning.
Now, on the other side of the personal spectrum, the trailer for Krampus Unleashed looks like it may be a technically improved production, and Krampus looks about 1,000 times better in this film as opposed to the last.
Note: he still looks pretty hokey.
But, we do love to support determined filmmakers, and we’re genuinely wishing Robert well with this project. Deliver a much stronger Krampus flick this time around you’ll likely see better opportunities in the future. So good luck – sincerely – to you, Mr. Conway!
Krampus Unleashed will be set free to cause all sorts of terror on November 1st on VOD and December 13rd on DVD.
Synopsis: Some things are better left buried. In pursuit of a lost treasure, a group of fortune hunters mistakenly unearth an ancient demonic summoning stone that holds a terrible curse and awakens a timeless evil, the Krampus. After centuries of slumber, Krampus, the Christmas Devil, has awoken with a thirst that only blood will quench. He knows if you’ve been naughty!
