It is implied that Rosie the dog is swallowed whole by Der Klown when she is sent into the vents after it. However, Der Klown doesn't appear to digest its victims, merely serving as a means of capture. While it is implied that Krampus was about to toss her and the rest of the family into Hell, this proves to just be a vision of warning, with the family, dog and all, shown to be fine in the end. While the ending does make it ambiguous whether the family has been captured by Krampus, or is simply being watched from afar, the director seems to imply the latter.

Not exactly. But the overall message could be seen as prioritizing family during Christmas, no matter how cruel they are being to you or you will get punished for not wanting to celebrate it with them.

(SPOILERS
i.e A boy lost the "Christmas spirit" because of being bullied by his extended family, and Krampus punished him for this. It ends by the boy desperately wanting the family back, and then things are restored with basically no changes, except possible vague memories along with signs that Krampus will always be watching, and -lesson learned- the boy is ecstatic for Christmas.)

There is no child abuse, there is bullying amongst the children (cousins). All the children come from loving homes.

Homicidal monsters hold people in iron grips and tie a chain around a woman's neck to choke or hang her. So we see people being physically kept from moving/leaving.

In the beginning of the movie the mom is hanging up Christmas pictures. Nothing is said about SA and you never see it anytime throughout the movie. But when she is hanging up one of the pictures there’s an extremely creepy Santa staring at her teen daughter. It’s disturbing and disgusting.

Why is there so many no’s? Yes,there’s a bit of comedy to relieve it sometimes sorta. And it’s not gore heavy,but this is definitely a torture based movie. ***SPOILER*** everything gets pretty wild and lots of people start dying. That leaves just the main character,which is a little kid. I won’t spoil the very end but yeah Krampus don’t mess around

I think so. It’s up for debate since only a picture is shown in the movie. But a picture of a teen daughter with Santa is a bit…creepy. Creepy as in Santa in that picture is giving her a weird,somewhat sexual look and it’s creepy.

1) The middle-aged mothers and fathers of two sets of children are killed by monsters. The children see the parents killed or being dragged off presumably to be killed. 2) The old mother of one of the fathers is killed by a monster (not in front of anybody). However, we see everybody alive and well later on, since all of the horrible events are undone. Bonus info: We see no old people that are sick, "fading", feeble or dying.

Der klown is a lamia-esque jack-in-the-box monster who serves as one of Krampus' creepier minions. He doesn't speak, or act particularly clown-like, but the motif is right there.

Yes, the grandmother has bad memories of a traumatic experience she had as a child. Herrsymptoms are not discussed or obviously depicted. However, she tells her story as the person who caused deaths because of her own shortcomings, which holds similarity to survivor guilt experienced by some people with PTSD.

Well, maaaaaybe... An old woman decides to stay in the house that she knows the monster is about to enter. She may be doing it only to slow the monster down by having it spend a bit of time killing her while the others run, but she may also be doing it in part as a way of finally escaping a life in which she's mourned her entire original family ever since she was a child. I had that thought because she doesn't try to hide or fight the monster at all (which would slow it down further); but waits for it right where she knows it will enter and stands completely still.

No, but the concept of needing dialysis is used in an insult. It makes no sense, since needing dialysis is nothing to be mocked for (!!!), and since no one in the movie seems to be sick in any way.
