Krampus trailer spreads Christmas fear

Being a Halloween man myself, I haven't really bought into the whole Christmas thing since I was a kid. More so now that I am a father for sure, but the scariest night of the year is still my favourite holiday.

So when writer/director Michael Dougherty, he who made the Halloween-themed classic Trick r Treat, announced he was making a movie based on the Krampus legend, I got real excited. Now that I've seen the trailer for what I am sure will be a holiday classic -- MY kind of holiday classic -- I eagerly awaiting the flick's Dec. 4 release date.

Wanna know why? Scope out this trailer:

Trick r Treat has the right blend of of funny and scary, and it looks like Krampus continues that Dougherty tradition. I like my horror with a healthy dose of humour, and to adapt that spirit to a Christmas-themed movie is A-OK in my book. Besides, the Krampus tale is one that's ripe for a horror film. I'm surprised it took someone this long to make it happen.

Krampus stars Adam Scott and Toni Collette. Who else is pumped for this?
