Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Krampus is a Christmas-themed horror movie that blends scares with humor and genuine warmth. The main character is a boy who believes in Christmas and in family but temporarily loses heart. Although the story has a fairly dark, somewhat ambiguous ending that may be upsetting for sensitive viewers, fans of "alternative" holiday fare are likely to enjoy it. Scary/violent elements include monsters and fighting, guns and shooting, as well as children in peril and some shocking/frightening imagery. Language includes one use of "f--k," plus "s--t," "bitch," and "a--hole" (the latter spoken by a child). There's some adult drinking, mainly played for humor, as well as a child taking a sip of peppermint Schnapps (given to him by an adult) and a quick reference to a teen smoking pot (he holds up a Christmas-themed bong). Sex isn't an issue, but a married couple does show affection to each other.

Social Behavior

Key themes include believing in the Christmas spirit and finding way to come together and love your family, despite differences and conflicts. And there's a plea for better understanding between neighbors and strangers. But the movie has a somewhat dark ending that doesn't really let characters learn this lesson.
