KRAMPUS Blu-ray / DVD Release Details

Michael Dougherty‘s Christmas horror movie Krampus (2015) releases on Blu-ray/DVD this upcoming April 26, 2016, via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The VOD release comes earlier on April 12, 2016. Bonus features I am interested in are the alternate ending, deleted scenes, extended scenes, commentary with Dougherty and for the inner geek in me, behind the scenes at Weta Workshop. Full bonus features listed below. Krampus stars Adam Scott, Toni Collette, and David Koechner.

Press Release: Universal City, California, February 23, 2016 - An ancient demonic avenger lays siege to an unsuspecting family in Krampus, a truly terrifying, darkly comedic tale coming to Digital HD on April 12, 2016, and Blu-ray(TM) Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on April 26, 2016, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. From Michael Dougherty (writer and director of cult horror favorite Trick ‘rTreat, writer of X-Men: Apocalypse), Krampus is "a must see film" (We Got This Covered) that delivers inventively nasty laughs as it plunges viewers into a nightmarish world ruled by a legendary monster bent on total destruction, punishing those who have lost faith. Krampus on Blu-ray(TM), DVD, and Digital HD also comes with exclusive bonus features including an alternate ending, deleted scenes, gag reel and extended scenes.

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.

Adam Scott ("Parks and Recreation," Black Mass,) Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine, The Sixth Sense"), David Koechner (Anchorman Series) and Allison Tolman (TV’s "Fargo") star in this gleefully gory horror thriller that delivers the kind of deep, dark laughs and hair-raising scares that make for a delightfully twisted holiday classic.
