Adam Scott gets a lesson in Christmas Spirit in ‘Krampus’.

When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max is

disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family's home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.

Krampus is an American black-comedy horror film, based upon the Krampus character from Alpine folklore, directed by Michael Dougherty. The film stars Adam Scott, Academy Award nominee Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania LaVie Owen and Krista Stadler.
