With Trick-R-Treat director Michael Dougherty cemented himself into the hearts and souls of horror fans everywhere and we’ve all been waiting with baited breath for him to throw us something new to chew on and it’s finally happened.  The trailer for Krampus has arrived and well, see for yourself:

Got your attention?  Yeah, I thought so.

Starring Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania Lavie Owen and Krista Stadler the story line is as follows:

“When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.”

December 4th is the date to circle on your calendar.
