Social Mood at the Box Office: Christmas Horror

In the 1980s, filmmakers bombed with Silent Night, Deadly Night which was released as social mood was positive and rising.

Legendary Pictures' Krampus, a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday. When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family's home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.
The film is classified as horror and comedy. The box office receipts will tell the tale....although everything may be crushed by the new Star Wars.
