KRAMPUS: UNLEASHED (2016) Reviews and overview


Naughty or nice… He’s coming for you!’

Krampus: Unleashed is a 2016 American supernatural horror feature film written and directed by Robert Conway (The Covenant; Encounter; Krampus: The Reckoning). The FunHouse Features production stars Amelia Brantley, Bryson Holl, Caroline Lassetter and Taylor Buckley.


In pursuit of a lost treasure, a group of fortune hunters mistakenly unearth an ancient demonic summoning stone that holds a terrible curse and awakens a timeless evil, the Krampus. After centuries of slumber, Krampus, the Christmas Devil, has awoken with a thirst that only blood will quench…



“If you enjoy visual horror then the film does have things going for it. Conway uses cinematography quite effectively and for its low budget it has a professional and effective feel. There are some creepy uses of shadows and darkness to scare throughout and some of its deaths are pretty violent … this saves the Krampus Unleashed from its frankly thin plot and mostly uninteresting characters.” Flickering Myth

” …some of the acting is a bit stiff, the violence and gore once Krampus shows up is serious. The three child actors turn out the best performances, as they appear to be more comfortable with their dialogue, as does Amelia Brantley, who’s Bonnie plays a significant part in the latter half of the story.”  Geeks of Doom

” …by no means a Christmas movie. Sure, it’s Christmas time in the story, and there are few decorations here and there, but that’s pretty much where it all ends. Not that it matters. This is a monster movie and that’s where it puts all its energy. Gory and violent, it doesn’t waste time with nuance or subtlety.” That Moment In
