Sunday Bloody Sunday Matinee: Krampus Origins [Film]

Welcome to Day 28 of Trainwreck’d Society’s Annual Month of Horror Showcase! We have a fully loaded month of all things horror for you fine folks! October is our favorite month for this very reason, and we are so excited to share 31 full days of film showcases and interviews with some of the finest folks from the world of horror, just as we have been doing for the last 5 years. What started as a simple 5 day showcase, has now blossomed into a full blown month long event. You’re going to love this! Enjoy!

“The first World War rages on when a group of American soldiers find a mysterious artifact that can summon the ancient evil of the Krampus.  After the men are killed in action, the artifact is sent to the commanding officers widow who is a teacher at a small-town orphanage.  The orphans accidentally summon the Krampus and the teacher, and her pupils are forced to battle this ancient evil.” – October Coast PR

Not going to lie to you good people….this is a “review” of a film coming from someone who has never actually watched anything regarding this Krampus figure. Of course I have heard of Krampus, but I just haven’t really leaned into the entire lure of the character. That is until now that I have witnessed Krampus Origins. Even with knowing nothing about the figure that is Krampus, I know a wonderfully done b-horror flick, and this is definitely one of them. The stylization of the film alone is worth its weight in golden medallions. I can’t tell you that I am looking into the world of Krampus, but I am definitely a bit more intrigued than ever before based on this terrifying film. What else could they have in store?

With a wonderful story line and a brilliant young cast, I believe that Krampus Origins is just a damn fine horror flick for all to know and love, whether or not you are a fan of the previous films. With veteran horror performers like Maria Olsen and brilliant newcomers who are moments away from breaking it big like Amelia Haberman, there is just so many great things to visually digest in this film. This is a film that takes itself seriously for all the right reasons, and manages to fill up every second of screen time with brilliant effects and wonderful performances. Check it out!

Krampus Origins is available on VOD and DVD on November 6th. Scary Christmas Everyone!
