Trick 'r Treat director helms Christmas horror tale Krampus

Michael Dougherty's Trick 'r Treat is hands down one of the best Halloween-themed horror flicks of all time. Hell, it's even one of the best horror anthologies to ever hit the big screen. Scary, funny, awesome.

So we in The Basement are pumped Dougherty is ready to make another holiday themed horror movie. This time the man has set his twisted sites on Christmas, and he's tapping into the German legend of Krampus to make it so.

According to lore, Krampus, AKA the "Anti-Claus," captures those children who have been naughty throughout the year and carries them away in his sack. Santa Claus caters to the good boys and girls, Krampus deals with the little shits.

Hey, whatever works.

Dougherty will direct Krampus for Legendary Pictures, and the flick has already earned a Nov. 25, 2015 release date. You bet your sweet ass we in The Basement will be watching!
