Christmas In April

An ancient demonic avenger lays siege to an unsuspecting family in Krampus, a truly terrifying, darkly comedic tale coming to Digital HD on April 12, 2016, and Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and On Demand on April 26, 2016, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. From Michael Dougherty (writer and director of cult horror favorite Trick ’r Treat, writer of X-Men: Apocalypse), Krampus is “a must see film” (We Got This Covered) that delivers inventively nasty laughs as it plunges viewers into a nightmarish world ruled by a legendary monster bent on total destruction, punishing those who have lost faith. Krampus on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD also comes with exclusive bonus features including an alternate ending, deleted scenes, gag reel, and extended scenes.

  • Alternate Ending
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Extended Scenes
  • Gag Reel
  • The Naughty Ones: Meet the Cast – At the center of this crazed story, filled with horrifying creatures and massive set pieces, are some of the funniest and most talented actors working today. This piece shines a light on the cast of Krampus as they share their experiences making this movie.

So I'm an awful person.I haven't watched it yet. But I can own it!! :D And soon! You know how it is.
My husband and I have a literal list of movies we were/are "supposed" to see (I think Jurassic World is on it, lol). We put "The Witch" on it,too, but I really hope to join the land of the living and see it in theaters for heaven's sake.

It's not often a film...a very hyped film, delivers totally and in every way for me, but that is definitely the case here. Anticipation for a day spent poring through the special features has me almost giddy.

Cool snowmen too! Can't imagine that won't net someone an advanced copy. :)
