Trailer Feedback: Krampus

Looks like we’ll be getting an unexpected guest this holiday season.

A family of grinches gets together for what’s likely to be their annual (and last) Christmas tradition when all goes dark. During their tumultuous bickering, one of the children tears up his letter to Santa and throws it out the window – presumably the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s (or Krampus’) back.

When the ungrateful family starts to come to their senses, it’s too late and Grandma warns everyone of what’s coming. Krampus is seen on the roof of the house with his sack of baddies and morbid toy contraptions before coming down the chimney to wreak havoc on la maison de dégénérés.

This looks like a holiday treat. From square one everyone but Grandma is an unlikeable character. Envy, bitterness, pettiness and disgust run rampantly in this household. The kids are fighting to the point where one angrily shreds his letter to Santa Claus – and on Christmas (for shame). You can bet that not a creature will be stirring when Krampus rears his ugly head (except Grandma, she seems nice). Krampus’ helpers are going to terrify and provide us with unique deaths that are sure to hark a few herald angels.

At this point the only question that remains is will Santa save the day (or show up at all)? Regardless, Krampus should jingle some bells and raise some hell.

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, Krampus is coming to town.

Trailer Feedback: Cooties

In our youth, there was once an invisible disease all little boys and girls had at some time in their lives called “Cooties.”

Essentially a warped version of tag, cooties could be brought on at a moment’s notice when one child would yell that another “had cooties”. Those highly contagious cooties could then be given to someone else by touching them and screaming loudly that said child now “has cooties”.

The only way to rid someone of their cooties would be to give them a “cootie shot” by making circular patterns on the victims wrist and saying “circle circle, dot dot, now you’ve got the cootie shot” before poking the cooties away.

But what if one of the cutest “diseases” on earth was actually a food-borne virus that turned kids into zombies?

In a nutshell, this is “Cooties;” a comedy-horror film that hits theaters just in time for class in September.

Elijah Wood (“Lord of The Rings” trilogy, “Green Street Hooligans”), Rainn Wilson (“Backstrom,” “The Office”) and a plethora of others star as teachers and faculty of an elementary school overrun with zombie children in what looks to be a smart, funny and adorable showing in the vein of “Zombieland”.

“Cooties” should have an abundance of great lines and cult classic moments. A trailer highlight is the tail end when Wilson cooly says “Naptime, mother- (shut your mouth)” before lighting a jumping jamboree full of infected kids on fire.

How’s that for a cootie shot?

Trailer Feedback: Hot Tub Time Machine 2

2010 gave us Hot Tub Time Machine: a comedy about three friends and a kid who through strange phenomena re-live a specific moment in their lives that also changes the course of their current ones.

Since the original was a hit, Hollywood has kept tradition by giving us a sequel five years later.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 takes place in the present, or at least seems to begin that way. At some point all of the main characters from the original (sans John Cusack) have time traveled to the past and used their future knowledge to their advantage a-la Biff Tannen. Unfortunately for the present, there are no ideas left to pillage and everyone is headed for a downward spiral. Trying to discover what they did wrong and how to fix their predicament, they decide to re-invoke the powers of the blessed jacuzzi. Along the way they visit the future, run into Adam Scott (Step Brothers), and eventually decide to time travel everywhere just for the heck of it.

Don’t pretend you wouldn’t do the same.

HTTM2 looks like it can hold up with the original. There should be plenty of interesting moments and plenty of laughs to go along with them. However, it also looks like too many of said moments could cause for a convoluted plot with more groans than grimaces.
