Krampus, with a screenplay by Todd Casey, opens in theaters nationwide today. Don’t get confused with Krampus: The Reckoning which I just saw listed on Redbox. This film is not rated by the MPAA. In the comments section, one reviewer felt duped because that it was similarly named to the “highly anticipated” Universal film.
Redbox has offered these ripoffs before with titles with Ouija: The Exorcism and several others, many by Uncork’d Entertainment. Krampus and Ouija are both Universal Pictures films–you’d think the studio would have something to say.
Todd Casey appeared onstage in Hall H at Comic-Con 2015 and rushed over to be on the Disney ABC Talent Development panel. An animation writer and producer, Casey is currently Consulting Producer for Marvel’s Avengers Assemble and has extensive credits writing for the DC and Marvel animation world.
Krampus is a comedy horror film about the mythical horned figure that punishes bad kids. Can we cheer the monster?
