"Krampus": Krampus makes his first appearance
I actually wanted more of Krampus in Michael Dougherty's box-office sleeper -- but then again, the titular beast's brief, shadowy first appearance is actually his most frightening moment on screen. In a scene that utilizes CGI to subtle and stunning effect, teenage Beth spies the horned demon jumping from rooftop to rooftop through her blizzard-bound neighborhood. With the aid of some impeccable sound design, it's a blood-curdling moment that works by virtue of what it doesn't show as much by what it does.
