‘Krampus The Naughty Cut’ is Coming to 4K UHD Just in Time For Christmas

Published

on

Krampus

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.

Krampus

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.

Were you a fan of Krampus? Will you be picking up The Naughty Cut? Let us know in the comments section.

Director Adam Green Relays a Chilling True Story About the Ski Lift in ‘Frozen’

Published

on

Just before director Adam Green announced the DVD release of his festival hit Victor Crowley back in 2018, he gave fans a behind-the-scenes tale about another one of his films; Frozen.

As we approach the 14th anniversary of that movie, we thought we would rewind a bit and re-share what he said about his experience on Frozen; his most successful film to date.

In Frozen a group of friends get stuck on a ski lift high above the ground in the middle of a snowstorm and try to figure out how to get down.

The film is not based on a true story, but there is an eerie coincidence as he tells it attached to the film’s location, and he may have had a premonition while riding the lift before cameras even started rolling.

“[We] finally came over these trees and there it was,” conveys Adam while scouting exteriors 50 feet above the ground. “There was the spot and instead of me saying ‘This is where we should shoot the movie,’ for some reason I said ‘This is where they die,’ and the chair just stopped- stopped! And I thought the representative of the mountain was like f***ing with us or something, but no it stopped.”

Adam says he excused the sudden halt to the wind or something else; it’s no rare occurrence that ski lifts stop without warning, but he says it was still really eerie and what was only a few minutes of hanging there in mid-air, felt like an hour.

Here’s the strange part,  as he was shooting the movie he found out from lift operators that someone had taken their own life with a firearm in that exact same location. They even showed a member of the crew the alleged chair that had the bullet hole in it.

Thinking it was still just a rumor, or a local urban legend Adam did more investigating. It wasn’t until Sundance that Adam got confirmation the death was real.

“Somebody in the audience raised their hand, and…said the person’s name. It was a true story, someone did die there. After that point my editor and I started going through all the footage trying to see if there was another voice on the audio or can you see anything.” They didn’t.

However chilling that story is we’d still love to hear if there was ever a conversation with Disney about using them using the name Frozen for their animated hit which came out three years later.

We sadly assume Disney won’t be doing a princess musical about Victor Cowley anytime soon, so we know that copyright is safe.

Stateside Final Trailer For ‘Godzilla Minus One’ Drops

Published

on

Already a word-of-mouth critical success Godzilla Minus One swims to the States today, opening in theaters nationwide. In celebration of that, TOHO released the final trailer for the blockbuster which doesn’t add much to the others, but it still looks great.

This release was wholly produced by Japan, the monster’s original home. Not since Shin Godzilla (2016) has the country produced another film until now. It’s been almost seven decades since the prehistoric Kaiju emerged from the Pacific Ocean to begin his love/hate relationship with Tokyo.

Fans have had a love/hate relationship themselves, not with the monster but with Hollywood. The first American-produced film was released in 1998. It didn’t capture the charm and romance of the original. Several other American sequels were made, each more grandiose than the last. Again, the lore and fantasy were swallowed by big actors and special effects.

With Godzilla Minus One, fans and critics say this might be the best direct Japanese sequel since the original. At any rate, Godzilla Minus One is now playing nationwide in America.

A Boy Band Kills Our Favorite Reindeer in “I Think I Killed Rudolph”

Published

on

The new movie There’s Something in the Barn seems like a tongue-in-cheek holiday horror movie. It’s like Gremlins but bloodier and with gnomes. Now there is a song on the soundtrack that captures the humor and horror of the movie called I Think I Killed Rudolph.

The ditty is a collab between two Norwegian boy bands: Subwoofer and A1.

Subwoofer was s Eurovision entrant in 2022. A1 is a popular act from the same country. Together they killed poor Rudolph in a hit-and-run. The humorous song is a part of the film which follows a family fulfilling their dream, “of moving back after inheriting a remote cabin in the mountains of Norway.” Of course, the title gives away the rest of the movie and it turns into a home invasion — or — a gnome invasion.

There’s Something in the Barn releases in cinemas and On Demand December 1.
