Forgotten Cinema: Krampus

Krampus - Forgotten Cinema Podcast

Original Blog Post: December 4, 2019 - The best 1980s Christmas movie not made in the 1980s.


Oh, the weather outside is frightful and the fire is...not going to stop Krampus from collecting his victims! The Mikes ignore Omi's advice and check out Santa's evil other half in the 2015 film, Krampus, directed by Michael Dougherty.

Mike Butler and Mike Field throw out some interesting facts about the making of the film, talk about how awkward and uncomfortable scenes in films can only go far before alienating your audience, and gush over the practical effects and the Joe Dante-esque feel of the film.

So grab your candy cane and hot cocoa, please notice the winter wonderland at the front and rear of the sleigh, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema
