I won't go through the plot here, as I'm sure you've read the synopsis . So here's what I liked .
  • Our 3 lead female characters have good chemistry , seem like they'd really be friends and were zany and fun to watch
  • The Krampus costume, looks pretty good to me. i like the way it's design resembles the classic Krampus look from the old German illustrations , and for a lower budget i thought the effects were pretty good
  • I enjoyed the reveal towards the end of the movie which i won't spoil
  • The Movie has it's tongue in cheek and has a good sense of fun


But what did not work
  • Biggest issue by far is the truly poor cinematography , camera work , editing and the lighting wasn't great either . Often shots are poorly framed , too dark, and edited in a way that makes the Taken sequels look well edited
  • Acting by additional cast seemed a very miked bag
  • Unnecessary scenes and characters. So many scenes were of the police station, i actually thought they might have something to do with the plot. Nope , just a running gag about the dis organised cops. Plus what was the point of the Richard moll scenes? Just smacks of reshoots to fill out the running time
  • A bit light on horror. Not as many kills or gore as i was expecting with a title like that
  • The movie lags in the second act. When the girls are holed up in the house. Nothing really seems to happen for about 20-25 mins


Overall fans of B-Movie cinema may enjoy a festive treat , but for the more casual fan , there are better produced modern Christmas horror movies out there

This is a slasher christmas comedy,located nearly totally in santaland somewhere in the usa,probably state of california.a bunch of girls having fun with santa till krampus shows up. its a likeable flick,if you can tolerate some blood.as most girlie movies there are lots of talk,most of the acting are duracell driven,and bares the signature of a low budget product ,but the santa figure were very decently acted .the comedy flicks where well excecuted,the krampus quite frightening, but what i liked the most was the animated intro sequence,that really tuned up my expectations. its a recommendable x-mas movie.

I personally am not a fan of horror movies, but i enjoyed slay belles. i got a kick out of everytime santa would say "krampus!" and the campy one liners kept the film light hearted enough for someone like me who is a big ol wuss when it comes to horror.

But folks! What kind of friend are we not stopping them from embarrassing themselves by releasing say... something like this.

I think there should be a new concept in the industry. "Honest movie commentaries" where good directors sit through films like this and point out every bad choice the makers made. Then i would love to rewatch this, and i truly believe a concept like that would spare us from a lot of "movies" being released.

Another low budget, third rate, very bad acting movie. Every lazy person think if he or she have social video channel that they can be actors, producers, directors and movie makers. It does not work that way in real world. Nothing is interesting in this movie. Bad story, bad acting, bad scenes, bad Krampus, but if you really dont have anything better to do with your life, and you want to watch 3 girls in short skirts running around Styrofoam house, well than, go and enjoy. Warning: they are not topless or anything.

I went into this film not knowing what to expect. The best I can tell you is that it is a FUN film-watching experience. It's hilarious, it's sexy, and it's creepy. It's an homage to horror movies, holiday movies, and the horror community. It has something for everyone. You got a biker Santa battling Krampus with 3 hot chicks helping him out. What movie is there to say?
