Director Michael Dougherty, whose 2009 film Trick 'r Treat is considered a Halloween classic, is taking on a different holiday next year, with the release of Krampus on November 25, 2015. Based on the ancient legend of a pagan demon who punishes the wicked, Legendary Pictures' Krampus is a twisted horror comedy set during the holidays. Since Christmas is just around the corner, the director is spreading his own twisted brand of yuletide cheer by releasing three unique holiday cards. Take a look at the official statement from Legendary Pictures.
"Filmmaker Michael Dougherty provides horror fans a holiday present - an early glimpse into his dark Yuletide horror film Krampus, scheduled for release holiday season 2015. As Christmas trees burn and shadows fall, this set of three twisted "Krampus Cards" showcase the darker side of the holiday and provide a fun, shareable look at Michael's subversive vision for the film. So, enjoy the cards and have a wonderful holiday season from Legendary Pictures, Michael Dougherty and Krampus."
