1918, a small town in Arizona: Josephine (Katie Peabody) is about to start her first day teaching at a nun run boarding school, trying to find the delicate balance between strict Sister Rafus (Maria Olsen) and drunk Father Timothy (Michael Harrelson) when she learns her husband (Owen Conway) has died abroad serving in the army. His last effects are handed to her, among them a book of magic which he took off a German Colonel, without paying much heed to it. Neither does she care much about it, but Ida (Grace Lopez), one of her students, takes it - and tries to cast a spell ... The next day, Ida is gone, disappeared into thin air, but a creepy young boy, Nicholas (Chandler Mantione), who has asked for abode in the middle of the night, is freaking everyone out. And then the Krampus (Cleon Gionet), a Christmas demon from European folklore, arrives, apparently summoned by Ida, and he kills all the grown-ups and takes all the kids to another dimension, all but Josephine, who's safe because she wears a magic amulet that was also among her husbands effects, and the caretaker Lena (Shannyn Hall), who has some knowledge of the occult, and thus also manages to keep three kids, Adelia (Anna Harr), Henrietta (Amelia Haberman) and Bram (Luke Waxman) out of  the Krampus' reach. But the Krampus' magic is powerful, and Lena's knowledge of spells rather limited, so it's a rather uneven fight ...

 

True, this film takes a tad long to get to the bloody parts, but it uses that time wisely, building up its main characters and making the time period this is set in and the boarding school feel palpable, and thus helps the audience to care about the characters once the carnage starts - and of course, a very solid ensemble cast also helps making things feel real. And once the action does set in, it sure hits hard. Very likeable Christmas entertainment for sure.
