Well, we’ve moved into the heart of the holiday season and we’re all anxiously awaiting the arrival of that big guy who visits once a year to bring us holiday surprises. Of course we’re talking about Der Krampus. Who did you think we meant? The Big Scary Show (g)hosts have hopefully all been good this year so that during Krampunacht, none of them will get carried away and punished. The haunt industry has embraced Krampus as part of their off season haunt events and it’s definitely becoming a bigger part of the holiday season. The Big Scary Show brings you all things Krampus for Episode 251. (Hope you haven’t been too naughty).
Storm rants about branding Der Krampus including getting him corporate sponsorship in a Haunt Minute. Meathook Jim will once again drink his way Between the Corpses with some spooky adult beverages. Badger will be reading the latest Deadline News, including some upcoming Krampus related events. The Old Crone returns to talk about planning for 2022. There’s a new Gruesome Giveaway for the month of December, plus a trio of spooky holiday related tunes to get you into the holiday spirit.
The Roundtable of Terror features all things Krampus with our friend Allen Hopps of Dark Hour Haunted House in Plano, Texas. His knowledge of Der Krampus is extensive, and we talk about how Krampus has integrated itself into American culture and how haunts are taking advantage of it. Fun fact: Did you know Der Krampus was almost killed by Hitler? Confused? Tune in and find out how.
We hid the body, but you’ll become an accomplice just by listening to……..the BIG SCARY SHOW
