It’s going to be a killer Christmas!

The terrifying backstory of the yuletide slaughterer comes to digital and DVD this November with Krampus Origins, arriving November 6 from Uncork’d Entertainment.

The first World War rages on when a group of American soldiers finds a mysterious artifact that can summon the ancient evil of the Krampus.  After the men are killed in action, the artifact is sent to the commanding officer’s widow who is a teacher at a small-town orphanage.  The orphans accidentally summon the Krampus and the teacher, and her pupils are forced to battle this ancient evil.

Starring Maria Olsen (I Spit on Your Grave: Déjà vu, Paranormal Activity 3) and Anna Harr (Bethany, Restoration), and directed by Joseph Mbah and written by Robert Conway, Krampus Origins on digital and DVD November 6.
