In the darkest and coldest months of the year, I’m always looking for a thrill and a scare. Sure, there are plenty of scary books to curl up with, and a few more end-of-year horror movies looming, but we’re about to give terror a holiday spin. That’s right, it’s time to talk about the Krampus. It’s been a few years since the horror movie of the same name added itself holiday horror movie canon, but the ancient Christmas demon has been around for centuries. We’re looking back and digging up the origins of the myths. What aspects were changed for 2015’s Krampus, and what parts stick to the classic lore?
