Ring In the Holiday Season with the Krampusnacht Freeky Film Festival in Champaign, IL this December!

Celebrate the darkness of the season with the KRAMPUSNACHT FREEKY FILM FESTIVAL this December 7th in Champaign, Illinois. The event will be held at the SoDo Theater from 7 pm – 10:30 pm. The festival will include two dozen short films ranging from horror to dark comedy. Get all the details on the festival below.

From The Press Release

The Krampusnacht Freeky Film Festival will present its inaugural screening at the SoDo Theater, 111 South Walnut St., Champaign, on the evening of Saturday, December 7th, 2019. Doors open at 6:30pm, and the event will run from 7 to 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door.

This festival draws its name from the Krampus, a creature from central European folklore who acts as the shadow of St. Nicholas — its punishment of naughty children makes a stocking full of coal sound appealing. “Krampusnacht” is observed on December 5th, the night before the Feast of St. Nicholas on the 6th.

This year’s program features two dozen short films from 9 different countries, including some produced right here in Champaign. The films range from horror to dark comedy, with many expertly entwining the two genres, and some incorporating twisted holiday themes. A full list of the selected films is available on the festival website, KNFFF.com, as well as a link to purchase tickets.

The festival supported by generous sponsorships by The Prompting Theater, CU Adventures in Time and Space, and Darrell Hoemann Photography.

Journalists and editors may contact KNFFF director Thomas Nicol with interview or media requests.

About Michael Juvinall (6694 Articles)
I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
