Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat) made his mark on Christmas horror with Krampus back in 2015, a box office hit that was ripe with franchise potential. Much like Trick ‘r Treat, however, we’re still waiting for a sequel nearly ten years later. Does Dougherty have any plans to bring the holiday beast back to the screen any time soon? It sounds like he might…
“We have an idea for a sequel on that one, too,” Dougherty explained.
“It doesn’t necessarily center around a family as much as it might be about a group of strangers who are trapped somewhere,” the filmmaker continued.
This doesn’t mean Krampus 2 is happening, but it’s interesting to hear that Dougherty is still thinking about the possibilities nearly 10 years after the first movie brought the Alpine folklore to the big screen. It sounds like he has ideas for more stories in both the Krampus and Trick ‘r Treat universes, and it’s only a matter of time before one of them comes to life.
Stay tuned for more as we learn it.
In Krampus, “When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max 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.”
