Michael Dougherty’s Christmas classic (yes, it is) is coming to special edition 4k UHD in time for Christmas. Yea, that means that this is the version that Dougherty intended for audiences to see but was deemed to long and too “naughty” for the studio. So, now we are going to have to own this version to truly make sure that Santa puts us on that much sought after naughty list.
The synopsis for Krampus The Naughty Cut goes like this:
When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.
Primarily, from the indication that we read this is going to be for dialogue scenes. But, maybe we will get some more gore, but I doubt it. In any case, Krampus grew on me and it rules. So, I’ll be grabbing a copy of this bad boy for sure.
Krampus The Naughty Cut comes to 4K UHD from Scream Factory beginning Dec. 7. You can pre-order your copy right now over HERE. If you order while they still have them, you will receive an 18 x 24 Krampus poster with your order.
