I went to Los Angeles to partake in the Krampus Escape Room Challenge at Countdown Live, and I managed to get my hands on an exclusive movie clip from the horror film which hits theaters on December 4. While there will be many jumps and scares, you can also expect a lot of laughs with a great cast of comedic faces such as Adam Scott and David Koechner.
As for the escape room, that’s also filled with laughs, as you watch my team go up against Cynthia from ADD’s team to see who can get out of the theme room first without getting killed by Krampus.
For those of you who don’t know about the legend of Krampus, allow me to give you some backstory.
For most of us the holiday season represents the most magical time of year, but ancient European folklore warns of Krampus, a horned beast who punishes naughty children at Christmas time. In the movie, Krampus will use anything to kill his victims, from the killer teddy bear, the knife-wielding toy robot, the vicious gingerbread men, the mischievous elves, a horrifying cherub and, of course, Krampus, himself.
In this clip we get to see Beth, played by Stefania LaVie Owen, hiding as Krampus is coming for her. As the clip plays on, we get to see how skilled Krampus is at finding his victims. Check it out below.
If you’re up for a scare, check out Krampus in theaters this Friday.
