The best thing about the film is the following of the Krampus.
Not that evil Christmas decorations would be scary enough, but the monster designers have done a great deal of work to disfigure them. Those who prefer handmade effects to those of the computer will get their money’s worth here. The Krampus himself has definitely succeeded and will not be given away in the first minute. In general, the timing fits. Although the Krampus lets the bells ring relatively early, (in) Christmas events then increase continuously and in elaborate steps. In between there is still appropriate dark humor, which, however, never dominates.
