"Krampus" Is The Terrifying Holiday Movie You Didn't Know You Needed

Hide your kids, hide your wife.

The trailer for Krampus, a holiday horror comedy film inspired by folklore about a demonic being that punishes naughty children, has dropped and I'm not sure how to feel.

A holiday horror comedy? I'm intrigued, but also...WTF?

It has typical holiday movie stuff: the relative who always talks shit about the decorations... / BuzzFeed

The parents who have had it and may just straight-up murder everyone... / BuzzFeed

And the annoying cousins. / BuzzFeed

Who look like they'll probably be the first to get snatched by Krampus.

Then shit gets real.

First, little dude here gets all angsty and rips up his letter to Santa. Then he tosses it out the window, causing some sort of evil, magical storm to appear. / BuzzFeed

Kids, do not do this. As a matter of fact, just don't fuck with magic or make wishes or anything like that during the holidays. It's dangerous. Just don't. Stop and think first.

Then, obviously, someone hears a noise and everyone's all, "Let's go check it out. What's the worst that could happen?" / BuzzFeed

How about you just stay where you are, board up the damn windows, lock yourselves in one room and wait for this shit to pass?! DON'T BE NOSY! MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS AND PRETEND YOU DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING! THE MONSTERS HAVE ARRIVED. IT'S NOT YOUR HOUSE ANYMORE!

The family decides to seek the help of some wise old lady who knows everything about anything. / BuzzFeed

And a gingerbread man gets murdered. THERE'S NO EXCUSE FOR THIS! HE DID NOTHING TO YOU, KRAMPUS.

The old lady is all, "Oh, that's just Krampus. He's here to snatch your kids." / BuzzFeed

What follows is a bunch of people running around outside... / BuzzFeed

Time and time again you have been told to stay inside. WHO GOES OUT INTO A DEADLY SNOWSTORM IN THE MIDDLE OF A KRAMPUS ATTACK?!

And glimpses of Krampus and his helpers... / BuzzFeed / BuzzFeed

WHAT THE HELL?! / BuzzFeed


Good luck this holiday season, you guys.
