I’ve been covering this film since its onset and am glad to finally have the first poster announcement for the upcoming Bill Oberst Jr. chiller entitled, Krampus: The Christmas Devil. You can check out the one-sheet down below!
From writer/director Jason Hull (Chasing Darkness, The Four) and Snowdog Studio comes this yuletide tale of terror featuring an ancient creature whose purpose is to punish the naughty children from Santa’s list. Along with Bill Oberst Jr.(Abraham Lincoln Vs. Zombies, Children of Sorrow) the cast features Rich Goteri (Machine Gun Preacher, Circus of Dread, Goodfellas), AJ Leslie (The Four), Mike Mili (Demon Equation), Jay Dobyns, Erica Soto (Post-Mortem), Annette Lawless, and Brad Weaver (Chasing Darkness) as the Krampus.
Special Agent Jeremy Duffin (AJ Leslie) leads a darkened life of memories stemming from abduction as a child, where he was dropped into a frozen lake and left to die. Now, as Jeremy recognizes a pattern in the deaths and disappearance of children resembling what could have been his ill-fated demise, he begins a personal quest to find the man terrorizing a normally peaceful Pennsylvania town.
Unbeknownst to Jeremy, the man he is searching for is actually a creature of yule tide lore, a Krampus (Brad Weaver), and has begun his final Christmastime task of finding his final victim, Jeremy’s daughter, Rebecca. With the aid of his Department Captain (Rich Goteri), Jeremy is able to track and find the location of the kidnapper, but this results in the death of two of his fellow officers.
As the Krampus approaches his final task, Jeremy is branded with the capture of his wife and child by a newly released felon, Brian Hatt (Bill Oberst, Jr.). Can Jeremy protect his family from a vindictive ex-con and the Devil of Christmas, the Krampus? The third action-thriller from director Jason Hull is sure to keep children off the naughty list for years to come.
