Universal has released the German theatrical trailer today, and I’m sure the American version will follow in the next days. Additionally, USA Today has posted a first batch of production stills. Co-writer/director Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat) pulls from centuries-old European folklore to unleash a holiday-movie monster with Krampus (in theaters Dec. 4), which dabbles in Christmas film tropes as well as horror, comedy and dark fantasy. “It’s one thing to be terrified or enthralled when you’re watching a film,” the filmmaker says. “To then leave the theater and realize it’s based on real myths and legends only makes it sink in even deeper.” In the movie, young Max (Emjay Anthony) has reached the precarious age where he clings to the idea of Santa, even though the rest of the world doesn’t believe in him. The Christmas spirit really takes a hit when the boy sees how his dysfunctional family — including Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner and Allison Tolman — behaves when they come together for yuletide cheer, and Max is pretty much done with the whole thing. The complete article can be read here. The production still and trailer screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.
