Krampus was met with mixed reactions from critics when it was first released and amongst fans of the genre that wanted a harder horror version of Krampus told at the time instead we got much more of a Gremlins fantasy movie.
This time around I appreciated this version of Krampus a lot more than the first time I watched it, it felt more naughty no pun intended. It just felt like the version we deserved from the get go with the great Toni Collette and Adam Scott, even the atmosphere of the tension felt different here.
There is so much to unwrap in this directors cut of Krampus that will make for the ultimate Christmas gift for the collectors or for audiophiles in your household because the newly delivered Dolby Atmos track on this disc is nothing short of astonishing. It will make your whole room shake with the new audio quality. To tell you a little bit about my Dolby Atmos set up I have a pair of Polk Audio speakers, with Okyono Dolby Atmos speakers along with a “10 Polk Audio subwoofer and to top it off a pair of Klipsch floor standing Dolby Atmos Speakers. Krampus sounded crisp and clear throughout.
The picture clarity of the 4K is also amazing to witness on a huge TV like my “75 Samsung QLED tv it was an amazing joint effort by the Scream Factory team to put this out there for the public to enjoy.
Overall grade: 4/5 stars
