Worse than Krampus?
Here’s a clickbait article listing ten villains “more evil than Krampus.” Howzabout I save you the trouble of having to read it and just encapsulate for you? (Yeah, the clickbaiters LOVE it when I do that.) Before we get to that, though, I feel I must take up for Krampus. He isn’t evil. He is the defender of the Christmas spirit. He only punishes bad kids. He’s like The Punisher! Anyway, on with the highly questionable list.
The burglars from HOME ALONE. Seriously? Some dude from ELF, a movie I’ve never seen and never will. Stripe from GREMLINS. Okay, this one is a possibility. The magician from FROSTY THE SNOWMAN. Yes, the cartoon. And no, I don’t think they’re kidding. The bully from THE CHRISTMAS STORY. Um, great flick, but not evil in the slightest. Ralphie kicks his whiny little ass all over the playground. Scrooge. Yeah, okay, he’s evil, right up until his redemption. The Grinch. Same as with Scrooge. Jack Frost from THE SANTA CLAUSE. Um, how about Jack Frost the killer snowman? (Or, more appropriately for this site, how about the blood-drinking little Jack Frost from the sequel?) The Bumble from RUDOLPH. Not evil, just hungry. But yeah, he scared me when I was little, which of course made me love him. And lastly, Hans Gruber. Yeah, I was waiting for that one.
