Krampus (2015)

A child's lack of Christmas spirit unleashes the wrath of Krampus for a 98-minute creature feature with an excellent twist. Co-written and directed by Michael Dougherty of "Trick r Treat", I am not surprised that this is such an entertaining watch with a well-picked crew.
They do not hold back with their 15 million dollar budget. Krampus is jam-packed with good acting, fantastic cinematography, and A+ special effects. This strays away from your traditional slasher Christmas horror in the best ways. 
You do need to suspend your disbelief while watching - these parents do not lift a finger to look for their children that start to go missing. Once you get past that and the PG-13 rating, you can enjoy the chaos that's unfolding.
