Christmas Street

I was very excited to watch the trailer for the Christmas movie Krampus (2015). It takes my two favourite things, horror movies and Christmas, and combines them together with black humour. This looks like one of those films that’s so bad, it could actually be really good.

I would love to write/work on a Christmas horror movie myself and have had an idea about a street called Christmas Street that lures children to it, in a similar way to how the gingerbread house works in the Brothers Grimm’s Hansel and Gretel.

Krampus is based on a mythical Alpine Christmas figure and has led me to look at other christmas villians like the baby eating Christmas Ogress Gryla, her sons the Yuletide Lads and their evil Yule Cat!
