Synopsis: Zoe is a strange little girl, with a not so imaginary friend the Krampus who is the dark companion of kindly old St. Nicholas. The Krampus has been unleashed upon a small town and the legendary demon will seek out all the naughty people to punish them at Christmas time. No one is safe as the Krampus hunts them down, tortures them and then drags their helpless souls to the depths of hell.
Let me see: A Christmas Horror Story, Michael Dougherty’s Krampus and now Krampus: The Reckoning? Does anyone else have any more Krampus tales to send our way during the holiday season? I guess you could say that 2015 is the Year of the Kramp. We had all better be good for goodness sake!
Directed and written by Robert Conway with Owen Conway as a collaborating writer, Krampus: The Reckoning stars Monica Engesser, Amelia Haberman, James Ray, Kevin Tye, Sean G P Anderson, Jeffrey Lamar, Owen Conway, Carrie Fee, Nathaniel Burns, and Shawn Saavedra. It’s set for a U.S. theatrical release date of November 3rd, 2015. Until then and as always you can enjoy the trailer and poster below.
In each scene with Detective Donald Kimball (Willem Dafoe), Mary Harron asked Dafoe to portray his character three different ways: 1) Kimble knew Patrick Bateman killed Paul Allen, 2) Kimball didn’t know Bateman killed Allen, and 3) Kimball wasn’t sure if Bateman killed Allen. Harron would then edit the takes together, giving the audience an unsure vibe of what Detective Kimball thought of Bateman.
BEEP BEEP! They ALL float down here. After you view these awesome IT posters, you’ll float too!

Here’s one that will probably make quite a few people cringe; especially those of us who find a trip to the dentist to be an experience akin to being the star of a snuff movie. It’s from 2012 so you may have seen it already. If you have then feel free to watch it again; if not then I invite you to enjoy The Root of the Problem right here on Short Film Saturday brought to you by the fine folks (well, just me) at Written in Blood!
Synopsis: A supernatural thriller set in the legendary Aokigahara Forest at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan. A young American woman, Sara, goes in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. Despite everyone’s warnings to “stay on the path,” Sara enters the forest determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate – only to be confronted by the angry and tormented souls of the dead that prey on anyone who wanders into the forest.
This is one that I literally stumbled upon and I’m quite happy to include it as part of Friday Night at the Trailer Park. I wondered how long it would be before someone made a horror film set in the Aokigahara Forest aka The Suicide Forest; a place like this is just rife for stories to be told.
The Forest stars Natalie Dormer, Taylor Kinney, Eoin Macken, and Yukiyoshi Ozawa. It is written by Nick Antosca, Sarah Cornwell, David S. Goyer and Ben Ketai and is directed by Jason Zada. It is set for theatrical release on January 8, 2016. Until then you can enjoy the trailer below.
