Merry Krampus Review part 1

Posted in Christmas, Demons, DVD, entertainment, Holiday, Reviews with tags , , , on November 30, 2016 by chrisdsav

In honor of the preview episode of Supernatural Creatures and LORE We will be covering A Very Supernatural Christmas. Talking about Krampus and Winter Pagan God’s. You can check it out here once the page is completed http://www.radioofhorror.com  I am going to once a week review one of the 4 Krampus films a week. Yes can you belive there are 4 of these fuckers. Fuck that shit…..but I digress. 

KRAMPUS THE RECKONING

A direct to dvd film by Ben Conway which is more Lifetime movie of the week than Evil Santa Claus flick. 

The movie opens with a mean couple who yells at their kids goes to bed fucks showers and smokes then Krampus kills them after being summoned by the mothers daughter. Then it becomes this little orphan summoner movie with police procedure and no Krampus. Krampus it self is so laughable and the film never looks like it’s taking place at Christmas unlike the he 2015 film KRAMPUS which was so full of Xmas cheer it was amazing how they mixed the Horror with the holidays. The daughter uses Krampus like pumpkinhead. Or since it’s the Holidays like a Jew would use a Golem.  

Written with his brother Owen Conway the script seems like it was another film and not a horror movie. The film is trying to make us sympathetic to Krampus carnage but not actually showing us the damn monter. Except in CGI and looking like something from a PS2 video game. 

Pass on this one and come back next week for another Krampus review.

KRAMPUS

Posted in Christmas, Comic Books, Holiday, Monsters, movies on December 1, 2015 by chrisdsav

Ah it’s Christmas  time, that time of year when you say Merry Christmas  to someone they say FUCK YOU. Or they tell you how offensive Christmas is to them. It’s also a good time for a Christmas  Horror movie and this year we have Krampus, Directed by Michael  Dougherty from Trick r TreAt. This movie comes out this Friday Dec 4th (Dec 5th begins the annual Krampus celebration in Pagan cultures) . I can’t wait the trailer looks great and we have needed a great Christmas Horror movie. When was the last time we had a great Horror Holiday movie, Season 3 of Supernatural , A Supernatural  Christmas Special that’s when. A boy makes a wish and summons the demon who comes on Christmas eve to terrorize and abduct the naughty  family members.

Krampus is basically anti Santa Klaus a very unknown creature in German Pagan lore. He would kidnap bad children and beat them with branches across their butts. Krampus has been around since before there was Christianity according to some scholars. It was around the 17th century that he was recognized as much as Santa Claus. It was in the 21st century  that popular  culture  made him famous.

Now only in the last 10 years has Krampus risen to fame. I can’t remember  seeing anything about this creature in any form before now. Jim Balent’s Tarot Witch of the Black Rose has fought the creature on three occasions the most recent being last week in issue # 95. Even bringing  in a female Krampus.

There is also a Krampus comic book tie in to the movie which came out last week, Krampus the Dark Spirit of Christmas.  He’s become so popular  I’m surprised Marvel and DC have not had him fight Doctor Strange or John Constantine yet. I’m sure it’s only a matter of  time before they do. In Christmas Horror Story Krampus shows up, there is a movie coming soon Santa vs Krampus. The guy is getting around. on Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc he showed up to terrorize  bad children but of cource that was a crook in a costume. RL Stein’s The Haunting Hour tv show also had a Krampus. I really wish the Real Ghostbusters back in the 80s had one as well.

I think it was American Dad who first introduced  me to the idea of the creature. Steve is kidnapped in Christmas eve by the creature.  I honestly can’t say I remember  hearing about him before American Dad or Supernatural. A neat idea that will get so over used we will be sick of seeing him on the big and small screen. Let’s hope there are more evil Christmas monsters we can use for the future. At the very least I never want to see a Krampus found footage movie.

Hallowen Holiday Movies

Posted in Comic Books, film, Halloween, Holiday, horror on October 30, 2015 by chrisdsav

Hollywood it seems has really woken up to the idea of making Halloween THEMED  horror movies. After 10 films in the slasher franchise, I think the only one that really touches anything to do with Halloween as a holiday is Halloween 3 Season of the Witch.
Very very good movie and we’ll written with a great concept about druids and masks that kill children. Scream Factory did a great job putting this out in 2013 as one of their first collectors Editon releases.

A few years ago we got Trick r TreAt  which I have talked about alot on my show over the last 8 years. This made really great use of the Halloween traditional folklore snd how if you don’t follow it bad things WILL HAPPEN. Recently a graphic novel sequel of sorts has come out Trick r TreAt Days of the Dead. ( why use day of the dead we have had two movies called that and numerous other projects.)  It also weaves four tales of Hallowen together and possible gives us the origin of Sam. Now this is in continuity with the movie as Michael Dougherty is a writer and editor of this comic and the director writer or the movie. His next film is Krampus  coming out this December.  Check it out now he even explains a little bit about where they are on the next movie.

Then we have The Houses that October Built which is another great Halloween movie I covered  last year. Directed by Bobby Roe, a group of filmmakers goes in search of the ultimate haunted house and find one run by real psychos. They visit many real haunted  house attractions across America. If you get the blu ray from Best Buy you get the original documentary film they made before the studio one recently.

Tales of Halloween is another great film I covered it alot this year and if you want  the full film list check out the link here. H3 list will contain the films snd the film makers involved. A Halloween anthology film that most of the shorts in the tales are really good and creepy. All focused or on Halloween.
