Summary

In Alpine folklore, Krampus is a fearsome horned figure who punishes naughty children during the Christmas season, just as Saint Nick rewards those who behave. Writer/director Michael Dougherty (Trick 'r Treat, Superman Returns, X-Men 2) brings this iconic figure to life in a modern-day horror comedy set against the perfect suburban holiday celebration. The Art of Krampus takes a look at how this terrifying character inspired the filmmaker and Legendary Pictures to create a movie that captures the dark side of the holidays. With fascinating concept art and unit photography showcasing the most thrilling, suspenseful, and horrifying moments of the movie alongside insightful commentary from the cast and crew, this deluxe coffee-table book details all that went into crafting Dougherty’s eagerly-awaited Yuletide horror film. Visually stunning and comprehensive, The Art of Krampus is the perfect holiday gift for horror enthusiasts.
