Krampus: Movie Review

The Krampus Movie: A real honest review

When the Krampus Movie came out in 2015, I pretty much knew that it was going to be... not great. I'm not a huge fan of horror films to begin with, but I do love fantasy and I do love Krampus. The 2015 film, Krampus is classified as fantasy, comedy, horror. I first watched it together with my husband at our home. I wasn't super enthused about the choice, but... I had the last pick and he sat through Trolls, so... I watched the Movie Krampus.
