Featured Stories - on October 09, 2015 by BoxOffice Staff

2015 is definitely the year of unconventional holiday entries. Krampus joins The Night Before as a schmaltz-free option for adult crowds. This week BoxOffice takes a closer look at Krampus' commercial potential. 

Krampus
(Universal)

PROS:

- Reactions to the first trailer on Facebook and Twitter are very encouraging. If there ever was a film that could become a sleeper hit because of social media attention, this is it.
- Star Adam Scott has built up a modest following over the years.
- This feels like a very smart piece of counter-programming.

CONS:

- The first weekend of December is considered one of the most times of the year to open a new film.
- Star Wars hysteria will be reaching fever pitch and it could completely swallow up this little horror flick.

Check out our predictions for this film and others in the table below.
