Krampus Christmas: Naughty, Nice, or maybe Not?

This horror-comedy Christmas tale, beckons a tale of a huge holiday family reunion gone horribly wrong. Young Max and his dysfunctional family, get an overwhelming visit from their Aunt Linda, Uncle Howard, their three annoying children and obnoxious Aunt Dorothy. Max, wanting to have a wholesome good Christmas with his whole family is constantly brought down by the hijinks and Christmas commotion of his “charismatic” visitors and his parents, snaps and shuts himself in his room.  Max loses hope in having a good Christmas and rips up his letter to Santa in which chaos ensues.

A massive blizzard appears the upcoming day and Krampus’s nightmarish minions seize the entire neighborhood and close into Max’s family. Now, they must fight against these nightmarish creatures and fight for survival and protect each other.

If anyone has ever heard or read the tale of Krampus, forget about it because it is nothing like the movie. While watching this movie, you have to remember, it’s a comedy-horror. This movie battled both with its comedic and horror parts. When it comes to comedy and horror combined, it was really hard to take anything seriously even when they were trying to be serious. Although when they did have serious moments, it was really hard to care for the characters because of its inconsistent characterization. Having high expectations for this movie I was quite disappointed, but I can say it had great effects as the monsters looked amazingly creepy. The acting was fine (If you’ve ever seen anything with David Koechner), the progression of the movie was weak and expected, but the final turnout of the movie stayed true to the horror concept.

Final verdict: I am ashamed that they didn’t use actual folklore for the movie. I’m just nit-picking but they could’ve done a better job with  storytelling and credibility.  I can say that it is entertaining holiday movie and if you’re into black comedy, check out Krampus.

Krampus gets 3 out of 5

+ The monsters are creepy! (Krampus’s creature model is perfect)

+ Tries to have creative storytelling

+  Something to watch for the holidays

Inconsistent characterization

Needs better execution of overall story

Jump scares were cut out, or not as effective

Kung Fury: Hitler and Dinosaurs and Man-Splits, oh My!

GUESS WHO’S BACK FOR ANOTHER LUNCHBOX REVIEW, LADIES AND GENTS!!  This is your man, Remy Tyndle over here, and I do believe it’s about that time take down the bad guys while delivering cheesy one-liners, because I’m gonna give you my two cents on Laser Unicorns’ Kung Figgity!  For those of you who aren’t familiar with this title, Kung Fury is a low-budget short film made in Sweden, written and directed by David Sandberg, that made its world-televised premier on the El-Rey Network this week.

The story first takes place in 1980’s Miami, centering around a martial arts master and police detective by the name of “Kung Fury”, played by director, David Sandberg.  When Adolf Hitler blasts into the present time and guns down innocent, Kung Fury makes it his mission to go back in time to kill him.


Kung Fury Theatrical Release poster

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if Regular Show was ever converted to Live Action? This is pretty much the best visual you are going to get and it can’t possibly get much better.  Kung Fury is a parody film, paying top tribute to 80’s action cinema; Cops, robots, fast cars, hackers, dinosaurs, lasers, dinosaurs with Lasers, arcades, one-liners, David Hasselhoff, viking chicks, and man-splits… lots and lots of man-splits.  If you’re looking for a film that doesn’t take itself seriously, and you just want a laugh while you say “Well that’s just plain silly!”, Kung Fury is the flick to put on your screen.

The majority of the film was shot in front of a green screen with 90 percent of the environment having been digitized, however the end result is pretty awesome, especially considering the special effects and the cinematography.  The only downside is the lack of actors’ feeling in the dialogue.  Now I know what some of you may be saying right now– “It’s a parody movie!  The dialogue acting isn’t supposed to be great!”, but I mean c’mon. Even some of the one liners just lacked that cliché nail in the wood that would have driven those scenes home.


Kung Fury taking it to Hitler’s “Army of Death”

Verdict: Kung Fury is still a great time, unless of course you are aiming to critique it from top to bottom, as if the thing was directed by Martin-freaking-Scorsese (if that’s the case, you’re going to say “This movie was stupid!”). If you just want to see some hilarious shenanigans on a dull Saturday night, it will not disappoint.  Just make sure you invite your friends over.  Kung Fury accomplishes what it was set out to do; honor the good ol’ 80’s action flicks in just 30 minutes.

Kung Fury gets a 4 out of 5

+ Fun nod to the old cheesy action movies

+ Special effects were actually good considering the budget

+ Crazy stuff going on that you and your friends will love

– Actors could’ve been better with the dialogue

– It’s still just a straight-to-television movie, so don’t expect too much


Another Piece of Remy-type shenanigans, comin’ at you from Teh Lunchbox Pub. Make sure to follow us on twitter @tehlunchboxpub.
