Krampus ($57,200,325)

Post by WyldeMan on 12/6/2015, 8:21 am


Legendary Pictures’ Krampus, a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday.
 
When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers.
 
All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.

‘Krampus’ Decks the Halls With $15 Million
During one of the hardest weekends of the year to open a movie, Universal did so with the Legendary holiday horror comedy Krampus earning $16M in second place, which is better than the $10M-$13M that the town and Uni were expecting.  With a title like Krampus on the release schedule, a throwback to the Christmas-horror cult hybrids of Silent Night Deadly Night, no one was taking this film seriously, predicting its imminent demise in its first weekend. One non-Uni distrib chief thought Krampus would go the way of the toilets just like Victor Frankestein.  However, Krampus rose on Saturday over Friday by 10%, which rarely ever happens for a horror title. Even more impressive: You would have thought that Sony’s comedy The Night Before with B.O. star Seth Rogen would be the it ha-ha-holiday title of the season at the B.O., but here we have an ever lower budget title at an estimated $15M with comedic actors Adam Scott and David Koechner beating out the opening of the Rogen film, $16M to $9.88M. Just another example of how audiences respond more to concept than star power at the box office. Krampus‘ B- CinemaScore indicates it has a 2.7 multiple which would get it to $43M. Some predict lower at $35M, however, once we get past Christmas, multiples become unpredictable.

Not surprised, the director's previous horror film is quite good.

The 2007 horror anthology, Trick r Treat.
