Things go from bad to worse for young Max at Christmastime. When relatives descend upon his family’s house for the holidays, everyone starts to clash causing Max to renounce his spirit of Christmas. Unbeknownst to him and most of his family, Max’s wishes call forth Krampus, a legendary entity, who, along with his helpers, bring terror to those who have lost the holiday spirit. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Krampus”.

· After the debacle at the dinner table, Max is having second thoughts about sending his letter to Santa. When Tom tells him “there’s still time to mail the letter”, Max takes the letter out of the folder as is reading it. Max is reading the front page of the letter – the notebook paper’s holes are in his left hand. It cuts to a close-up of the letter and Max is looking at the back – the notebook paper’s holes are in his right hand. The scene cuts back to the original view and Max is looking at the front of the letter again.

· The delivery man arrives at the house and is talking to Linda at the front door. When he leaves, Howard looks out at the packages and notices the packages. The view of the red bag when he says, “these too”, shows the top of the bag is covered with snow. The snow is gone from the bag when Howard picks it up.

· After Omi has told the story of Krampus, Howard starts to argue. When he says, “do you believe this senile…”, a view of Omi shows the toe of the green stocking over the fireplace (the one with the white Christmas tree), is pointed to the right, toward her. Tom says, “Howard, that’s enough”. Howard tries to stand up and the view of the fireplace shows the stocking is now pointed to the left. When Howard mentions “bedtime story”, the scene cuts back to Omi and the stocking is pointed once again to the right.
