      Dani Whitehead Cultured Vultures This movie doesn't have nearly enough violence or gore to be a proper Krampus movie, even though they have upped their effects game just a smidge. Rated: 1/10 Oct 30, 2019 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media Cheesy, low-budget horror prequel has blood, violence. Rated: 2/5 Nov 27, 2018 Full Review John Townsend Starburst Apart from Dougherty's film, Krampus has been used woefully as producers and directors seek to cash in on anything remotely seasonal. Perhaps it's time to leave this particular character alone. Rated: 2/10 Nov 27, 2018 Full Review Bobby LePire Film Threat Krampus Origins suffers from poor characterizations for almost every person in the story. However, the acting is reliable from all involved, and the director ably juggles the drama and horror scenes to good effect. Rated: 7/10 Nov 5, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Mario A Didn't flow well between scenes. There was no suspense... There acting was meh, probably due to the script. The Krampus character was hokey as all heck, low budget is painfully obvious. If you closed your eyes and listen to Krampus talk it was exactly like listening to the Ultimate Warrior from WWE. Why didn't anyone in production notice that? I should've watched it on shrooms or acid. Bummer. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/29/23 Full Review Alex B Life is too precious and short to see this film, I honestly feel like I have been robbed of £0.99 and 1 hour 25 minutes of my life. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/10/23 Full Review adam b Didn't realize this was a prequel film to both Krampus: The Reckoning and Krampus: Unleashed but I don't think it really mattered I watched this first. The acting is mostly god-awful and 80% of this film is a slow build-up to the reveal of Krampus and even then, it's a guy standing in a suit of armor that gives off dialogue long and drawn-out similar to an NPC. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member B movie at best. Horrible acting. Super slow to start with. Bad effects. The story doesn’t make any sense either. Don’t waste your time. The first one was good....this one was far from it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/28/19 Full Review Audience Member Knew we were in trouble from the opening crawl. Krampus Origins not only does not in anyway show us the origins of Krampus, it also tried to ruin Christmas. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member One would think this movie would get better by the time the Krampus actually shows up, but this low budget so-so flick dive bombs into full on disappointment with their painful to watch creature.
