I Believe in Krampus!

Thu Dec 15, 2011, 11:01 AM
Feeling bored with traditional American Christmas traditions? Well then let me introduce you to a wonderful tradition thanks to Austria, Hungary, Germany and all the other Germanic sorts of Countries, Krampus! Its good cop bad cop with this twist of Santa bringing along his good friend Krampus who carries a birch bundle and whips the naughty kinder, while santa gives presents to the gut kinder! if you are especially naughty Krampus (Which is old German for "Claw") will kidnap you and your parents will be free of their ill behaved naughty child.

Of course after reading/researching all of this blessed holiday fun, I instantly thought of Lil Chibi Prussia, and his dear old Vati "Germania" you just KNOW Vati told the story of Krampus to his young ones, and yes you can expect to see a New Holiday Chibi Prussia Diaries soon based on this wonderful old German tradition.

Below are some examples of old postcards of Krampus, if those don't get you in the holiday spirit nothing will ;)





still needing more Krampus here is a link to a Youtube vid of how Krampus would appear on a holiday special

Everybody ready for another terrible movie review!!!

Good cause Im giving a quick SPOILER FREE review to Krampus which came out today.

It was GREAT def go see it if you like the horror-comedy genera. Id give it like an 8/10. It was really good! a fine mix of suspense, jumps, dark humor, and a shockingly dark but accurate representation of the modern holiday experience. A real fun movie to take a date to, (I know I did ;D) and its PG-13 so all you kiddies can go as well! Just dont expect any blood and gore with that PG-13 rating. Honestly it had a great balance of digital and practical special effects not relying too much on CGI. For you folks who scare easy and dont like shit too intense dont worry, the movie while suspenseful and creepy with a small handful of good jumpscares, isnt really too heart poundingly scary, and I even sat in the front row. Just dont expect to have your pants scared off. Also the cast is great, some faces you might recognize ;)

So go see it if you get the chance! I had a lot of fun.

Well thats about it! Happy Holidays!

I saw The Visit today which was pretty scary and good. I happened to get a preview of this trailer and I gotta say it looks scary, funny, and pretty entertaining. It's time to kick some Krampus ass! :XD:

Warning: Do not watch this if you're easily scared. Like seriously, don't do it if you are :|

Krampus Trailer

(I know it's a little late, but I still want to share it)


All I can say is:

1.) It looks promising because the trailers don't have any cheap jump-scares, and they never reveal what the creature looks like (ala Jaws) so not to ruin the suspense.
Sure, there's a few silhouettes & the picture with only his hand. Still

2.) Apparently, the old woman has a connection to the creature. Most likely she witness the Krampus taking/beating her family, while he spared her because she wasn't as bad as they were. Now it's happening again.

3.) It's about time that they made a Horror flick about the real scary figure of Christmas! I'm sick of the whole evil/slasher Santa Claus schtick.Oh Brother... 
People, Santa is not scary! Sure some of illustrations of him are creepy, but the character himself isn't. Kids aren't even afraid of him.
The reason why they sometimes act so awkward around the mall Santas is because they are either shy/nervous or they actually see right through the costume & see a complete stranger in front of them.

4.) How many of you are rooting for Krampus to kill most of the family members because they are jerks?

Krampus Christmas movie

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 11, 2015, 6:15 PM
For anyone who knows me well you'll know that I hold Krampus close as a Christmas tradition, despite my family's protests.

Anyway, I was quite surprised to know this year we have an interesting spin on our classic Christmas movie, it's a horror! 
And not just any horror, who better to spread horror on Christmas than Krampus! 

Yes everyone, it's the day I've been waiting for, a Krampus Christmas movie! I'm not sure if any of you outside of America have any Krampus related movies, but as far as I know this is the first that's given him the spotlight for once. 

Now judging by the trailer it seems to be a typical horror movie jumpscare fest, complete with asshole characters that you'd probably want to see die.
Well I'm not fully convinced yet, considering it's filmed by the same director who did Trick r Treat I have pretty high hopes that it will be a unique and proper horror movie. Plus it's Krampus! KRAMPUS! 

I'm still a little skeptical, as I've said many times I've been let down before, and if this film lets me down as a horror movie then I'll have no more hope for horror movies in the future. But I can say it does a good job of being a unique Christmas movie. 

I'll see you in December!

Krampus Will Terrify Your Children

Fri Dec 4, 2015, 7:22 PM
Hey, long night, but-

Goddamn. 

Go see Krampus. It is delightfully mean-spirited. If you take children under twelve to see this movie? Guarantee they'll be traumatized. Don't take them to the theatre.

Take yourself, though. I can't recommend this movie enough. 

Season's greetings everyone!

    It is I your favorite holiday spirit: 

:iconletter-kplz: :iconletter-rplz::iconletter-aplz::iconletter-mplz::iconletter-pplz::iconletter-uplz::iconletter-splz:(!!!!!!)

    Though I did pay a visit towards the middle of the year it's been awhile since I've seen any of my favorite countries. I have been well these past few months and have been having the best holiday season in a very long time. There was a horror movie somewhat based off me which I approved of and there have been quite a number of children on the naughty list.

    Thanks to this good fortune I think a celebration and recognition of my accomplishments and influence is in order. That is why I have decided to make it my goal for this year to turn the 12 Days of Christmas into the 12 Days of Krampus!!!! This is a very exciting event for me and I hope it is successful. That being said I can't do it alone. So guess who gets to help me??? That's right...YOU!! The nations of the world! I need your help to spread   fear cheer throughout the world! Whoever helps me throw an awesome part gets a free ugly sweater in any design you want, ((thanks to England)), a guaranteed spot on the nice list, PLUS I will leave them alone for awhile ;)

See you at the party planning session~
                                                                     -KRAMPUS
