Krampus Original Content Trailer
Written and directed by Michael Dougherty, Krampus is Legendary Pictures’ Christmas film release, telling a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, revealing an irreverently twisted side of Christmas.
Universal Studios and Comflix Studios commissioned Territory to create a 60 second custom content trailer as part of the online marketing campaign, taking visual cues from the movie’s production design and it’s comedy-horror script.
Our writer/director Adam Wimpenny devised a script that explored the contrast of the festive season before and after the household had been paid a visit by Krampus and his scary helpers. Using illustrated Christmas cards and a beautiful CG environment the viewer is transported through to an unsettling scene of horror and disruption, sending chills down your spine at the thought of toys coming to life and the legend being true. The emotion of the scene is accented perfectly with the sound design and music mix by Ian Livingstone.
