A Krampus Carol: The Smouldering Dark Recesses of Yuletide Revelry

A Krampus Carol: The Smouldering Dark Recesses of Yuletide Revelry

A Krampus Carol is a wickedly humorous three-minute stop-motion animated short film by Anthony Bourdain, a film that smoulders in the dark recesses of holiday revelry. You know all about Santa: the traditional winter gift-bringer with cheeks like a rose and a nose like a cherry. Now meet the Krampus, an evil, boozy goat-horned menace with a monstrous tongue, who whips children into shape all around Europe. Krampus is Santa Claus’ whip-toting Christmas sidekick. According to Austrian legend, Krampus joins Santa, tending to the children on Santa’s naughty list. No lumps of coal here, though. Instead, Krampus licks and whips children into shape with switches and rusty chains, before dragging them in baskets to a fiery place below.
