For many, Christmas is the most magical time of the year, but not when the terrifying Krampus is around to destroy the Christmas Spirit! This year at Universal’s annual Halloween Horror Nights spectacular, guests can expect to come face to face with the legendary beast in an all-new haunted house. Those with tickets to Halloween Horror Nights should prepare to step inside the movie and discover what happens when Christmas goes horribly wrong. Check out the video below for a preview of what you can expect…
If you’re not familiar with the story, it follows the Engel family and their dysfunctional Christmas experience. When constant family feuding causes young Max to rip up his letter to Santa which asks for them all to be together at Christmas, he unknowingly awakens the wrath of Krampus. Half-goat, half-demon, you’ll have to scramble to get away from the terrifying creature who’s out to punish all non-believers. Thought to be an ancient folklore tale, could it actually come to life? There’s only one way to find out!
This is the first time Krampus has appeared at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando and fans of the movie are in for a (trick or) treat, as Universal have confirmed they are working alongside director Michael Dougherty as well as Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures to make the horrifying house as authentic as possible. If you thought Krampus was bad enough, he won’t be alone! While gingerbread men, elves and teddy bears all sound pretty tame beware, these are all part of his team of evil ‘helpers’.
Enter a deadly winter wonderland and prepare to be tormented by the horrors that lie within. As well as becoming immersed into iconic scenes from the movie, you’ll be able to create your own frightening memories as you dodge gingerbread men wielding nail guns, hide from the teeth-baring Teddy Klaue and above all, try to escape from the petrifying Krampus who has one aim only…to terrorise! Seeing as Christmas is the season of giving, Universal have promised that if you attend “you’ll receive the most gruesome holiday gift ever”.
Joining Krampus at this year’s event will be the maniacal host Chance, who plans to make you go out of your mind with fear. There will also be haunted houses themed on popular horror movies Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Exorcist as well as AMC series The Walking Dead, to name just a few! Think you’ve got what it takes? The host thinks “you won’t stand a chance”!
