I wondered how long it was going to be before Hollywood caught on to the resurgence in popularity (what, it’s only been a few hundred years) of the Krampus monster, the dark shadow of Santa Clause. And here we go. Because when you get the Trick or Treat helmer in charge of your seasonal horror film, Weta Works to design your monsters, you release that shit wide. Chris, Michael and Herman review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    I’ll agree the comedy was more slight than laugh out loud funny, but I thought it worked tremendously at grounding the characters in an emotional honesty that got me invested in them as more than mere stereotypes.

    No good Christmas horror movies? Have you not seen “Rare Exports”?

      We were being hyperbolic.

    I LOVE the original Black Christmas, and this movie was fun as hell xx

    I, like many, first heard or became aware of the Krampus from It’s a Very Venture Christmas. Unless liking the Venture Bros makes me a hipster.
