Kevin Smith's KRAMPUS Movie Morphs into KILLROY WAS HERE

It’s a few years now since Kevin Smith revealed he was working on a Christmas-themed horror anthology dubbed Comes the Krampus, and now comes an update on the project.

That Comes the Krampus title was soon changed up to simply Anti-Claus, but that was the last real detail we’d heard on the picture... until now – with Smith revealing that the movie has been tweaked and is now to be known as Killroy Was Here, largely due to Michael Dougherty’s Krampus.

As Smith himself explained during a Facebook Live session, “We were gonna make this Krampus movie and then somebody went and made a Krampus movie. Ours was an anthology that played more like Creepshow. Or, to appeal to the modern-day kids, Creepshow 2. Or, let’s say, Black Mirror. So yeah, it’s kinda like that. It’s an anthology. So our Krampus movie – which was called Comes the Krampus and then later on Anti-Claus – it got shelved. So we decided to re-engineer that dopey script. We turned it into a different movie. We just changed the Krampus character. It’s almost the same script. Took the Christmas elements out of it. Instead, we’re calling it Killroy Was Here.”

What we know so far is that the movie will centre on a long-nosed monster designed by the iconic Robert Kurtzman and inspired by the famed World War II “Kilroy Was Here” graffiti. The anthology effort is currently shooting over in Sarasota, Florida.

Expect a whole lot more on Killroy Was Here as it continues to develop.
