The cast for Trick 'r Treat director Michael Dougherty's Christmas horror-comedy Krampus is shaping up nicely. Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner and Stefania Owen have all signed on, joining Allison Tolman and Emjay Anthony. The plot is based on the ancient Pagan legend about a demon who punished evil children during Christmas time.
Adam Scott and Toni Collette are playing two parents, whose son (Emjay Anthony) becomes the Krampus' target. Adam Scott's character is described as a "workaholic, absent dad," while the mother played by Toni Collette tries to pretend that everything is fine with her family by preparing elaborate meals. Both parents are forced to step up and defend their family when the Krampus comes to town.Read More
