In the same way that Michael Dougherty made Trick ‘r Treat into a modern Halloween classic, he’s given Christmas the same treatment with Krampus. The 2015 horror film has been greatly received ever since its release, with many horror fans tuning into it every year as a Christmas tradition. Now Spirit Halloween is adding to the fun with their brand new animatronic Krampus replica.
As noted on the official Spirit Halloween website, this animatronic is definitely “unlike the rest.” It should bring a great bit of scary fun for those horror fans that just can’t seem to let go of the macabre during Christmas.
Here’s the official description:
“This half-goat, half-demon is here to keep an eye on the behavior of all who celebrate. Watch your back because Krampus is always watching. Should you decide to misbehave, you may be in for a punishment! This life-sized Krampus animatronic features light-up eyes, howling sounds, and moves from side to side for a scare that is unlike the rest.”
