Halloween is a few days away, and after that is the beginning of Christmas madness, which fits perfectly with my last evil toy movie, Krampus.
After being taunted by his cousins at an unpleasant family dinner, a little boy accidentally brings the curse of Krampus onto his family, and things turn dark. Some of Krampus’s minions are evil elves but the best are twisted versions of classic toys, like an evil teddy bear with rows of sharp teeth and a jack-in-the-box that eats children like a snake. The creature design is so fun, and this movie has a nice balance of spooky and silly. Plus, there are some great knits.
