Well, of course he’s back: after all, it’s Krampusnacht, isn’t it?
But he’s also back on the big screen, in a new comedy to be released next year: Die Goldene Rute (The Golden Rod), no doubt referring to the rod wielded by the Krampus, or Krampi, who maraud through the movie with malign intentions towards the female stars’ bottoms. It’s made by an Austrian production company that looks as if it may be a later incarnation of the team responsible for the 2007 slasher movie Tag der Teufel and its remarkable 2008 spin-off, Spanking Devils. Some terrific teaser videos have started to appear online, which – like almost all movie trailers nowadays – tell you virtually nothing about the story. But they do make it look like a film that’ll be well worth waiting for!
