What do we expect from the sequel of “Violent Night”?

“Violent Night 2” is the sequel of “Violent Night”, but more mature in the way that it can be. In one of the interviews, David Harbour said: “I wanna do a sequel to Violent Night with Santa Claus doing much more violent things, and we’ll just get into it.” So we can expect more brutality and “badass” acts on Santa’s part. David Harbour himself may play the main villain in this movie. The sequel to the movie ‘Violent Night’ will probably be more bloody, vicious, and brutal than its predecessor. But it will also have tender moments with good humor. The plot will be about a bloody war between Santa and Krampus. Also, the plot could be another revenge murder of Krampus.

Will “Violent Night 2” be about Krampus vs Santa?

David Harbour tweeted a piece of concept art with Krampus in the foreground and Santa in the background. It has given us a taste of what’s to come from these two characters the next time they are together or emphasized.
