Mocked as a baby by his older cousins, and with his dysfunctional family at each other's throats, youngster Max loses his Christmas spirit, tearing up his letter to Santa and throwing it to the wind. Soon after, a freak blizzard rolls in, bringing a terrifying demonic force, the Krampus, the "shadow of Saint Nicholas" as explained by Max's German grandma, who knows this folktale all too well. This Christmas horror comedy from Michael Dougherty (TRICK 'R TREAT) contains a pointed critique of crass holiday consumerism; its sharp cast of comedic actors includes Toni Collette, Adam Scott, David Koechner, Allison Tolman and Conchata Ferrell. DIR/SCR/PROD Michael Dougherty; SCR Todd Casey, Zach Shields; PROD Alex Garcia, Jon Jashni, Thomas Tull. U.S., 2015, color, 98 min. RATED PG-13
