I honestly hadn’t heard of Krampus until the 2015 Universal Pictures movie came out. But after watching it I have to admit I was interested in the lore. Krampusnacht was a good read because of its variety – stories of varying length set in a multitude of time periods and lots of different takes on the beast of lore.
There are some really great little tales in here – and some not so great. I think for me Ring Little Bell Ring was a story I wish had been longer, it was such an engaging idea, and Santa Claus and the Little Girl who Loved to Sing and Dance was so outrageous it was brilliant. I was also particularly drawn to Raw Recruits – one of the darkest stories in the anthology and definitely my kind of Yuletide horror. However I felt the weaker stories were so weak as to pull down the whole anthology.
If you’re a bit tired of the syrupy sweet, Cliff Richard themed Christmas cheer then Krampusnacht is certainly something you might want to indulge in. It’s a dark hot chocolate (with a healthy splash of something stronger!) kind of book – ideal for those dark (but not too dark!) winter nights!

This is not a book of Christmas horrors; rather, I found it to be a lighthearted look at a character many of us did not know as children. If I had to rate the scariness, it is on par with Grimm's Fairy Tales. However, this is a book aimed not at children, but at adults who enjoy that feeling of Christmas and want to suspend their level of disbelief in supernatural characters, if only for a little while.
Kate Wolford has assembled a cast of wonderful writers, and each has provided readers with their view of Krampus. From the rough beast who eats those who fail him to the tavern "bookie" who invites his victims to gamble to the best buddy of good old St. Nick, these separate portrayals are sure to make you smile...and maybe cast a wary eye over your shoulder. Fun read and a definite five stars.
First Night of Krampus: Prodigious (by having an unusual tongue and putting on a costume a man is able to become what Santa needs)
Second Night of Krampus: The Wicked Child (brothers shouldn't make their little sisters cry)
Third Night of Krampus: Marching Krampus (a young girl is befriended by Krampus)
Forth Night of Krampus: Peppermint Sticks (Mr K has a new assistant, one who doesn't particularly like his boss or his job)
Fifth Night of Krampus, Ring, Little Bell, Ring (a slow building horror story of a woman who falls in love with a man and then finds out who and what he really is, I didn't particularly like this story)
Sixth Night of Krampus: A Visit (a man gets a well deserved Christmas visit)
Seventh Night of Krampus: Santa Claus and the Little Girl Who Loved to Sing and Dance (There are some kids so horrible so nasty so selfish and mean spirited *fyi I HATED this story)
Eighth Night of Krampus (be careful choosing how you die)
Ninth Night of Krampus: Nothing to Dread (a little boy catches Krampus and changes his town forever)
Tenth Night of Krampus: Raw Recruits (Krampus needs people to make switches and one recruit makes certain he will have many new raw recruits)
Eleventh Night of Krampus: God Killer (a man goes on trial for killing Krampus)
Twelfth Night of Krampus: A Krampus Carol (a retired highway patrolmen gets the Krampus treatment tjat he and others often gave out)
