My Review Of "Mother Krampus 2: Slay Ride
4 August 2018 | by ASouthernHorrorFanSee all my reviews

"Mother Krampus 2: Slay Ride" plays on old world legend of Christmas witch, Gryla in Iceland (many cultures have a story). The movie does a great job of putting you in that all-to-familiar Holiday spirit, rife with bloody horror. The set up is classic. All the Christmas horror movie tropes are present, and where a lot of films throw everything in the movie for the sake of it, "Mother Krampus 2" does a great job of keeping continuity and reason in the use of these concepts. The direction, and choices taken to bring this tale to life make sense and only add to the entertainment value.

The cast are all a step above your basic, low budget options. The characters, though super cliche, are relatable and fun to watch. A few performances really stand out. "Mother Krampus 2: Slay Ride" only has one real flaw and that is the mild lag in the mid-section of the move. If you don't count the fact that a 30 minute charity trip has a cast of characters all but moving into the scene of the crime- I've done something similar with weed dealers and apartment complex neighbors in the past -so totally plausible premise.

The real winner, aside from ultra cool indie status, is the special effects which are all practical and quality work. Kudos to real attention to visceral, giallo aspirations, executed flawlessly. That and the above par cinematography make this one a cut above your standard low-budget affair. Again kudos to creating such good horror classic moments.

Even with the small hang ups that show up in "Mother Krampus 2", overall is is a pretty cool indie horror. Reminiscent of both "Christmas Evil" and more recent indie horror "The Sleeper" , this one does a nice job of honing in on the Holiday Horror appeal, has that classic arthouse vintage slasher vibe, and places it all squarely in the melinnial cross-hairs of future cult status.
