Tired of the usual inflatable snowmen and twinking reindeer adorning your Christmas yard decorations? Check out this Texas fan's demonic Krampus creation from Michael Dougherty's evocative 2015 horror fable, Krampus, frighteningly brought to life atop his peaked roof to conjure up an amazing homage to the film.  

Cosplayer Joseph Anthony Fotinos decided the dark Yuletide folklore figure was the perfect accompaniment to his holiday cheer and lovingly manifested this towering screen-accurate likeness in two days to scare the sugar cookies out of neighborhood revelers both naughty and nice. Have a look.

Director Michael Dougherty was so impressed with this killer Krampus that he tweeted his enthusiastic approval.  High praise indeed!  What do you think of this creepy Krampus, and does it add an eerie element to the shiny and bright Christmas season?
