Krampus the Christmas Demon
Krampus is a Christmas demon who comes to punish naughty children. He's a prevalent figure in folklore, especially around Europe and America – so much so that he even has his own Christmas movie.
But how much do you really know about him? What is his past, and what does he represent? Do we know enough to separate the real Krampus from the horror b-movie demon of sex and violence?
The lore of Krampus is that he came from the legends of the Alpine regions, until those rediscovered him in the mid-1990s. Before that, pretty much nobody in goth circles knew about him.
Krampus the Christmas demon really began to be celebrated in the 1990s horror film, "Krampus: The Christmas Devil" (1995). Since then, goth clubs have been holding Krampus parties on or near Christmas.
However, people probably didn't think much more about it until the metal band, Death in June, released their goth Christmas album "Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering" (2004). It's now goth custom to celebrate Christmas with music, parties, and most of all, Krampus.
In the movie "Krampus: The Christmas Devil," a girl is being naughty when her boyfriend dies in a secretive hit-and-run. Her grieving brother tries to figure out who killed his sister's lover, and ends up finding Krampus' underground lair.
Krampus turns out to be an ancient demon threatening to kill everyone in the world with his army of evil elves. The mysterious hit-and-run is revealed as a sacrifice to Krampus, as part of a strategy to bring about the end of days as we know them.
In this movie, Krampus ponders in death and destruction. He's not limited to just scaring children, or taking them back to his lair. He's also the mysterious stranger who will kill you if you don't watch your kids.
Krampus in this movie is not necessarily evil, but he does follow dark pagan traditions that are definitely mysterious and dangerous. Krampus may halt to scold naughty children; however, he'll also kill you if you don't watch out.
