Kamloops horror and comedy podcast Drunk in a Graveyard and the Kamloops Film Society are presenting a series of movies at the Paramount Theatre, downtown at Victoria Street and Fifth Avenue.

• Dec. 11 will feature a screening of Krampus, along with a live Krampus at the theatre, with whom photos can be taken by donation, proceeds of which will go to the Kamloops Film Society.

Photos will take place from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., with the film to follow at 6:30 p.m.

Hailing from Germanic alpine tradition, Krampus is a sidekick of sorts to jolly Old Saint Nick. While Santa Claus brings presents to nice children, Krampus comes to punish the naughtier ones. Krampus is often depicted as a devilish character or a twisted version of Santa Claus.

• On Dec. 17, the 1974 Canadian horror movie Black Christmas will be screened at 6:30 p.m. The original flick is one of the scariest movies ever made and far superior to the recent remake.

• On Dec. 18, the classic holiday film Christmas Vacation will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Organizers will also be selling eggnog, singing songs and awarding prizes in the Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest.
