“Krampus”- December 4

There are a lot of things you could say this movie is not, but original wouldn’t be one of them. After Christmas day didn’t turn out as well as he planned, a young boy accidentally summons a Christmas demon to his home, terrorizing him and his family. The film stars Adam Scott (“Step Brothers,” “Parks and Recreation”), Allison Tolman (“Fargo”), and David Koechner (“Anchorman”). With the tagline “You don’t want to be on his list,” comedy, scares, and laughs are sure to ensue. – T. Davis
