[Horror Queers Podcast] The Familial Horror of the Holidays in ‘Krampus’

Booby Likes It Spooky.

Trace and I had a surprisingly busy November: we tackled a not-great Candyman sequel, a great adaptation in The Ruins and, oh yeah, we celebrated our 100th episode with Cruising.

December is all about the holidays, so we had to kick the last month of the year off with a festive horror film that captures how nasty family can be at this time of year. And what better film to screen than Mike Dougherty‘s Krampus?

In the film, a dysfunctional extended family gathers for Christmas, but after tensions explode at dinner, son Max (Emjay Anthony) makes a nasty Christmas wish that his family, including mom (Toni Collette), dad (Adam Scott), aunt (Allison Tolman) and uncle (David Koechner), fall prey to Krampus and his demonic Dark Elves.

Episode 102 – Krampus (2015) feat. Bobby Torrez

We’re kicking off the holiday season by hunkering down in a snow globe with YouTube star Bobby Torrez and a screening of Michael Dougherty’s Krampus (2015).

The film has an all-star cast (Toni Collette! Adam Scott! Allison Tolman! David Koechner!), but doesn’t manage to nail its balance of tones like Trick ‘r Treat did. Thankfully the film has a great score (suck it Joe!) and a fantastically unnerving jack in the box named Der Klown, who Trace cannot stop jizzing over. Plus: Krampus as an LGBT icon, why the holidays are hard for queers, and lesbian-coded twins.


Cross out Krampus!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re turning our attention to a beloved entry in the Batman franchise, but not the one listeners might expect. We’re covering Batman: Mask of the Phantasm!

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
